Encrypt All VBA Modules

This question is pretty self explanatory:

Is there anyway that I can secure all code in a global Word template by encrypting it?

I know that I can password protect my modules but $9.99 and the ability to read can circumvent mere password protection. Is there anyway that I can really secure my code by generating an encryption key which is used when sending/receiving data between a user template and a global template?

The points will go to the most sensible advice.

Hi advlegals,

To provide the highest level of security for your VBA code, use Microsoft VB (.Net) to create a Component Object Model (COM) add-in. Because the VBA code in a COM add-in is compiled as a dynamic-link library (DLL), it can't be modified without access to the source code used to originally create it.

To know more on encryption, pls refer:

Hope, this serves your purpose,

Thanks,
