Apple Silicon support

PRESS RELEASE – San Jose, California – PACE Anti-Piracy Inc., is pleased to announce full Native Apple Silicon support. After significant development and rigorous testing, iLok copy protection tools are now fully Apple Silicon compatible. The latest license support software update now includes full M1 support, along with existing support for Intel-based macOS systems. This release enables plugin makers and publishers to update their products that have native M1 support with full license protection.

Allen Cronce, CEO PACE Anti-Piracy, regarding the announcement:

We knew our publishers were keen on taking advantage of M1 Pro and M1 Pro Max devices and its impact on the creative community and their workflows. This was a top priority for our engineering team – and it was a big job. We are really happy about this release.

In addition, if you are using iLok License Manager version 5.5 or newer, you can now request a machine activation reset from within iLok License Manager. The publisher will still need to approve the request.

iLok is part of the PACE Anti-Piracy licensing platform which enables publishers to distribute their licenses securely via cloud, machine, or iLok hardware (USB dongle). Secure license distribution also requires different layers of protection, including a high security tamper-protection solution called Fusion. The work surrounding Fusion was very complex and required significant changes at the OS Level.

You can download the free iLok License Manager 5.5 at the link below, or by checking for updates within the app. It requires macOS 10.12 (Sierra) or later.
