How does it work and why do I need one?
The iLok is a special USB device that holds your licenses for iLok-enabled software. Software publishers use the iLok to provide secure protection for their software. When you run their iLok-enabled software, it looks for the software license on your attached iLok.
For some DAWs and PlugIn suites, there is no alternative – grab yourself in iLok3
It’s portable – you can authorise your software anywhere it is installed. At home, work, or at a remote location, you can keep your software licenses with you, not on your computer.
It’s convenient and cross-platform – Store your Mac and Windows iLok-enabled software licenses all on a single iLok. A third generation iLok (pictured) can hold over 1500 licenses.
Worry Free – Your licenses are on the safest, most secure solution: the iLok. With “Zero Downtime™ protection available, you’ve got 24/7 peace of mind”
