Hardlock has now been succeeded by our Sentinel HL product family, a next generation smartcard-based hardware protection key that offers advanced technologies for software protection and licensing. Thales remains committed to the continued technical support and device driver updates for Hardlock. Our Sentinel HL keys are fully backwards compatible with existing Hardlock implementations.
Leveraging Sentinel HL with your Hardlock implementations will also enable a simpler migration to Sentinel LDK, where you can leverage the new cutting-edge capabilities provided by a complete end-to-end offering for protection, licensing, and entitlement management.
- Please visit our support portal for migration to LDK, including tools and documentation.
