StarForce Protection System Celebrates 15th Anniversary


Many countries have laws to protect copyright and intellectual property but sometimes they are not effective: users can easily obtain illegal copies and pirates take most of the revenue. In this case publishers need to find technological means to protect their products against illegal distribution and piracy. Already in 2000, StarForce Technologies started offering an effective solution to protect CDs and DVDs with games and other applications against industrial and domestic copying.

Thanks to its own unique technology, the StarForce Protection Solution became popular very quickly. This helped access the international market within 2 years and in 3 years, StarForce Technologies became one of the world’s top three developers of solutions to protect intellectual property.

At present, more than 7 million licenses with StarForce protection inside (#‎StarForceinside) are sold worldwide. Besides for games, StarForce Technologies provides protection for educational and training content, trader scripts and corporate applications and documents. The StarForce portfolio includes 12 software products and 2 cloud services: SFContent.com, a service to protect documents and e-books online, and SFLetter.com, a secure email service. 

“Fifteen years is a long period for a technological company, because during this time the market landscape can change radically and technologies can become outdated”, says Alexander Zatsepin, COO at StarForce Technologies. “We are confident about our market niche: software licensing, protection of corporate information against leakage, preventing pirate distribution for entertaining and training content – all these questions will always be actual. But distribution channels and user devices are changing gradually, which makes it crucial for us to improve our products to meet the increasing demands of our clients”. 

“The mission of our company is to provide conditions for unobstructed exchange of digital information, including copyrighted materials, trade secrets and intellectual property”, says Natalia Yashenkova, Head of Marketing and PR at StarForce Technologies. “It means we offer tools which help to control program and document distribution without fear of leaks. That is why one of our latest projects is a secure email service which allows any person to send a message and attachments using inbuilt protection in no time. Besides we pay much attention on usability of our products for our customers. We want our protection to be almost invisible to ordinary users, while posing an insurmountable barrier to the attacker”. 

Celebrating its 15th Anniversary, StarForce Technologies has prepared a present for customers – a 15% discount on a one-time order of any product. The offer is valid till 15 October 2015.
