I have taken to mountaineering a couple of years ago. I am currently mastering the five-thousanders of the Caucasus; the plan is to climb the seven-thousanders of the Pamirs. Each time before the trip, the members of the crew are debating.
Should we take helmets? Or is it just added weight? Should we take ice drills for the safety stations, in case someone falls in a crevasse? But this adds 300g per person.
Or we’ll better to stick to the rope team. Appeals to security reasons and references to statistics of accidents are not always convincing. We are sure bad things will never happen to us.

DRM (Digital Rights Management) is a system that allows you to control access to digital content and applications. DRM enables the technical part for licensing the digital content, software, games, etc.
The purpose of DRM is to provide access to the product for the users who have bought it, and to block access for those who do not have the legal right to use your content. DRM usually includes copy protection as well as different restrictions for example, time or area limitations.

I mostly use Outlook to work with emails and from time to time I feel a necessity to track the opening of my emails by the addressees. There are a lot of email trackers for Gmail but only a few are capable to work with the Windows client correctly. The idea of email trackers is old enough to invent tools to block email trackers. For example the Ugly email service detects components of some trackers and on the site you can see what trackers can be blocked.
And sometimes cruel monetization comes, as it happened with Signals when a CRM absorbed the tracker and now it is available only as a part of a big system on chargeable basis. So search of a good tracker never stops.

Many business areas have found analogues on the Internet. This also applies to the book selling. In the physical world, only the fact of sale is important and further pirated reproduction is a laborious and thankless task. We cannot say the same about electronic books, since there is a risk of copying and leakage due to the digital form, which significantly reduces sales. Authors and publishers must ask themselves - how can I can track the fact that my electronic book has leaked into free access and what should I do in this case?

On the assumption of our practice more than 40 percent of the implemented by our company projects on the software security of automatic teller machines (ATMs) and self-service terminals is post incident. In years 2014-2016 within the Russian Federation's territory more than 30 incidents occurred, generally the “direct dispense” attacks to ATMs in two scores of banks. A range of banks suffered from repeated series of attacks, the resources for implementing on-line counter measures on the territory-distributed area network were not enough.

We ourselves are a part of the fan army who likes to play old computer games and it does not matter what it is: nostalgia for the past or appealing to the ageless classics. The main thing is that we send the owners of games without patches to the technical support of publishers, and they return them to us by boomerang, incorrectly stating that only we can solve this technical problem.

We live in a world full of threats. And our mission is to reduce the threat level for publishers: people and companies that create unique content for sale. Using our products, they get the confidence that their applications, courses, books will be sold, instead of being downloaded for free from pirate sites.
In March 2017 StarForce Technologies presented copy protection with a binding to USB Flash Drives. In this post I am going to tell why we have selected a binding method for copy protection and how it works for USB Flash Drives.
