Virtual Vault - protect your ebook with "Lock to PC" personal key protection; revoke ebook access
This page is still here for historical reasons but we can no longer recommend "Virtual Vault".
EBooksWriter's internal security / digital rights management is very good, far better than the competitors. EBooksWriter has 128 bit password protection, and the "lock to User" feature, i.e. personal passwords for different users. These features are very powerful and are usually sufficient for the "real life" use.
But you know, security is never enough. We have had several requests about implementing a "Lock To PC" security feature, and there is also a long thread about this on the User's forum.
The "Lock To PC" is an additional degree of security and means that when your ebook is installed on the end user's computer, it will require a personal key that will be generated online and will work only on that customer's computer.
In addition to this, if a customer ever requests a refund, the "Lock To PC" feature enables you to revoke access from that customer. With the click of a button they will no longer be able to access your ebook.
This is a powerful feature, but its implementation is a bit complex for the non technician. In fact, we decided not to supply this feature within the EBooksWriter package itself, because this would require complex "scripts" installed on your Web server, 99.99% uptime for your server, 100% security on the server, and... last but not least, you would need to know how to do all of this and perhaps you have never installed a "script" and never want to.
While we were thinking about an easy way to provide the "Lock To PC" feature to all EBooksWriter users, we were contacted by CBProtect, a company that does provide a popular utility to lock software and ebooks.
We investigated this option thoroughly, and were happy with this proposed solution, so now EBooksWriter and the Virtual Vault from CBProtect can work together to definitely stop ebook piracy. Effectively and easily.
There are no complications and no scripts to install, as everything is managed on the Virtual Vault server.
You simply install an easy-to-use software application that will enable you to "wrap" your ebook inside a super-secure container (called the Virtual Vault), which will enable you to generate (and also revoke) access keys. The system automates the entire key generation process and delivers the keys to your customers automatically upon successful purchase of your product. And you can view details regarding these customers at any time using your own custom administration and stats screen.
We have negotiated some special deals with the folks at CBProtect and so if you are a VisualVision client, or if you have just purchased EBooksWriter, you can get VirtualVault with a special discount. It is not possible to purchase in a single step EBW + VV, as EBooksWriter is a one time fee, while VirtualVault is a monthly fee, but once you purchase EBooksWriter we will email you a link for the special discount (or ask us!).
Should you want to try Virtual Vault, click here and you will be able testing it for about $2; it works with EBooksWriter LITE (to download EBW Lite, click here; for more information about CB Protect Virtual Vault click here).
