Revolutionary iLok smart key provides portable license management
The key component of the InterLok system is the iLok USB dongle. This "smart key" allows software licenses to be moved from Receptor to Receptor, and all authorizations ? regardless of software vendor ? are stored on a single key. This makes activation of software purchases simple and convenient.

Convenient Software authorizations through
Purchasing software for Receptor is simple: just plug the iLok into a computer with Internet access, log on to the website, enter a credit card number, and an authorization is made available. The user then plugs the iLok into their Receptor and the software is immediately authorized to run.

"PACE has significant experience in this area and their solution offers the most transparency to our customers" comments Chris Halaby, CEO of Muse Research. "Using a single solution with Receptor eliminates the conflicts that occur when there are multiple protection systems from different vendors. Both customers and developers win" he adds.

"For the end user, there is a single easy to use product that allows them to manage their licenses. The flexibility of this system is un-matched in the industry."
