Celebrating 25 Years of Innovation

For a quarter of a century, we’ve provided businesses with the peace of mind that comes from our robust tools for managing software licenses and copy protection. Our suite of products is easy to implement, offers flexible control, integrates seamlessly with any system, and provides industry-leading security.

CrypKey has added a great deal of functionality of the course of time such as copy protection for net programs, Network Licensing, Cloud Licensing, and a License Expander feature that allows an unlimited number of license controls of any type. Whether a sole proprietor or a Corporation of thousands, no matter the size of your business we have a solution for you.

Dongle and Dongle-less licensing.

CrypKey has the unique ability to offer both of these types of licensing to every protected program automatically – no extra coding required! Dongle-less license allows instant unlocking using the Internet. However, not all computers are on the internet, and there are circumstances where a software protection dongle key is required. For these cases CrypKey offers the ability to use USB License Dongles to unlock your software. CrypKey auto detects the presence of the USB license key, just plug it in and it works. See “USB Keys” on our Products page.
