How does it work and why do I need one?
The iLok USB is a special USB device that holds your licenses for iLok-enabled software. Software publishers use 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 USB. Some publishers allow activation to a host computer or the iLok Cloud in addition to the iLok USB.
iLok USB-A & USB-C
The iLok USB is fully backward compatible with previous versions – so all software developed for use with a 2nd generation iLok will continue to work with a 3rd generation iLok USB-A or USB-C. And with the addition of Zero Downtime (ZDT) protection, you will always have access to your licenses if your iLok USB is lost, damaged, or stolen.
