Canada – SecuTech Solution Inc is shipping a new driverless USB plug that
functions as a hardware version of a password, allowing users to access
locked software and decrypt software licenses.
“UniKey, the Driverless dongle, reduces the huge work of technical support
team for software vendors.
Unikey has the lowest industry failure rates in the industry which is
guaranteed with lifetime warranty.
Unikey technical support team earns the highest rating of customer
satisfaction in the industry.
Unikey products cost about 50% less than others. “, said Michelle Law,
director of worldwide marketing of SecuTech.
The UniKey USB keys work with Macs and PCs, SecuTech executives said. The
devices are designed for software developers want to protect their products
Using a toolkit from Unikey SDK, developers can set up a shell around a
program, so that it can only be accessed when a specific dongle is plugged
into the machine. Similar devices exists which use the parallel port, but
the USB systems should be easier to use, Michelle.said.
The devices can also be used to authorize a license over the Internet. For
example, if a user receives a trial version of software and wants to buy
it, they can go to a Web site and have a license sent over the Internet
onto the USB device. Users can currently obtain licenses over the Internet,
but the advantage of a hardware-based system is that it lets developers
protect their software after the license has been delivered, Michelle said.
While the devices are currently aimed at the developers market, Michelle
said they could also be used by network administrators as authentication
systems, allowing users access to the network or to specific software on a
The software toolkit is free for all technical Engineers.
