StarForce DRM protection software.
DRM documents security

Internet provides broad opportunities for file exchanging: you can upload content on your site or use Google Drive and provide a link to your users. StarForce DRM copy protection is used to limit access to the files with intellectual value. This system controls access and prevents unauthorized copying and distribution. If your user has even a limited Internet connection, we recommend to use DRM copy protection with online activation.

To provide DRM protection against copying, in this case, StarForce Technologies offers to use binding to the hardware and software parameters of the user’s device.

DRM copy protection benefits

Reducing the cost of physical media

You do not need to spend money to buy and prepare CDs, DVDs, and USB-drives for distribution.

Access control

To open the protected files you need to enter a special code that is the serial number. You can edit the serial number parameters or revoke access to the file if it necessary.

Usage statistics

The DRM copy protection system provides information about when and where access to the protected files was activated.

How does DRM protection software work?

1 File protection You need to set DRM protection on your file. We will help you with this. After protection you can upload the file on your website, a cloud drive (e.g. Google Drive) or an online store.
2 serial numbers generation To provide access to the file, you need to generate serial numbers with necessary parameters. This procedure can be automated through StarForce API for online stores.
3 a link to the protected file The serial number is provided together with a link to the protected file. You can also record it on CD or other media if it necessary.
4 system collects the device’s profile and extracts a hardware code When the end user opens the file for the first time, the StarForce system asks him/her to enter the serial number. After that, the system collects the device’s profile and extracts a hardware code. The serial number and the hardware code are transferred to the StarForce License Server via the Internet, where the serial number is validated. If everything is alright, the system activates access and the protected file binds to the user's device.
5 Sales statistics tracking After activation you can get information where and when the serial number has been activated. It allows you to track statistics of sales and usage of protected files. Our DRM protection solution works without problems.
