Excel Software announced OfficeProtect 1.0 to protect Microsoft Office documents with a secure software license. Authors that sell Excel spreadsheets, Macros or Add-Ins for Excel, Word or PowerPoint can ensure that only licensed users can activate and use the protected documents.
Authors can create time or execution limited trial editions, product editions, software subscriptions or floating licenses with no programming skills required.
OfficeProtect includes ready-to-paste Visual Basic code and step-by-step instructions to bind a document to a license configured with the QuickLicense protection and licensing system. OfficeProtect supports documents, Macros and Add-Ins for Microsoft Office on Mac OS X or Windows (32 or 64-bit). Protected documents are activated with a computer specific Activation Code or a Serial Number using an online activation server.
OfficeProtect provides integration with the QuickLicense family of tools for software protection, license management and automated activation. These tools support computer specific manual or online product activation, time or execution limited Trial licenses, software subscriptions, floating licenses, plugin protection, secure license portability, shopping cart integration and human language or branding customization.
OfficeProtect can secure documents, macros and add-ins with no programming experience required. Protected documents can be saved, duplicated, renamed and moved without disabling the protection. An author can choose on which or how many computers a document or family of documents can be used. Used in conjunction with the QuickLicense Server, a specified number of protected document licenses can float within a customer network with no Internet access required.
Document authors with Visual Basic programming skills can access advanced capabilities within the QuickLicense protection system to remotely enable paid features or send and receive Internet data.
OfficeProtect 1.0 is $395 for a Single User License that supports Microsoft Office on both Mac and Windows. It is used in conjunction with QuickLicense Standard or Pro edition. The product includes a PDF User Guide, VBA interface code and royalty-free distribution rights for any number of protected documents or distributed licenses.
