Wibu-Systems' Video Podcast Channel

In its mission to deliver unique, most secure and highly versatile technologies to software publishers and intelligent device manufacturers, Wibu-Systems has developed CodeMeter, a comprehensive and award-winning suite of hardware- and software-based entitlement solutions for the protection of software rights and technical know-how against piracy, reverse engineering, tampering, sabotage, and espionage.

Dominating Industrie 4.0 with Secure Software Licensing 


The future of the industry is digital and intelligent, powered by know-how expressed in software that enables collaborative robotics, Big Data and analytics, IIoT and M2M, augmented and virtual reality, and 3D printing. Collaboration between the makers of innovative solution and manufacturing companies promotes the dissemination of the Automation 4.0 culture, the understanding of its implications for competitiveness, and the implementation of successful use cases. At the core of the new infrastructure, we find Cyber Security 4.0 and Digital Business 4.0, both facilitated by CodeMeter Embedded 2.0.

The brand new generation of CodeMeter Embedded provides a broad spectrum of new features:

  • An extremely compact footprint: the technology is modular, so it’s your choice how to combine the modules you need and build a fully customized solution for your project.
  • Established compatibility with embedded systems and PLCs to cover the complete gamut of intelligent devices you intend to deploy.
  • Wider compatibility with platforms and operating systems; if you use a mainstream system, including ARM, Intel, and PPC, we deliver the corresponding libraries to you; if you use more exotic platforms, the source code is directly available to you.
  • Compatibility with the complete array of Wibu-Systems’ hardware and software secure elements: CmDongles, CmActLicenses, and CmLAN (License Server in a Network).
  • Compatibility with CodeMeter Runtime: no need to pick different solutions for complex architectures; CodeMeter covers all options at once.
  • Compatibility with CodeMeter Protection Suite, because top notch encryption is the starting point of all communication.
  • Compatibility with CodeMeter License Central: once security is in place, you can get on with creating, distributing, and managing your embedded software licenses and start monetizing your business.
