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.

Best Practices for License Management 


CodeMeter addresses the needs of all software publishers from all sectors of industry. With CodeMeter License Central, they have the tool they need to map any licensing model. Both experienced software vendors who are exploring a possible migration to CodeMeter and newcomers who are dipping their toe in the water with CodeMeter can improve the art of mapping out their licensing schemes to make them as simple as possible and as complex as necessary.

Feeling Right at Home: Uniform Processes for Online and Offline Licenses 


As the CodeMeter technology expands to welcome CodeMeter Cloud and reaps all of the mobility benefits associated with making licenses available in the cloud, anytime, and from any device, software developers should feel at home: All workflows for creating, delivering, changing, and managing licenses stay the same, whether you choose hard, soft, or cloud license containers. You can mix and match them in a heterogeneous architecture. All you need is to choose whether you want your licenses offline on a computer, mobile on a dongle, or online in the cloud.

Total Control over your Protection and Licensing Process 


CodeMeter provides different paths to strong protection and flexible licensing. With CodeMeter Core API, you are in control over every option in the process: you can create simple license queries that you can make available via a wrapper as company-wide standard libraries, manage licensing operations, implement tailored cryptographic functions, and customize queries for maximum security. Combine it with Wibu Universal Protection Interface and CodeMeter Protection Suite and you’ll have the perfect security setup.

Automatic License Updates: Usership and Usability 


The manufacturers who will still be holding the reins in tomorrow’s markets are the ones who are first to understand that the product ownership era is coming to an end, to transition from products to services, to rethink their entire supply chain from a radically new perspective, to implement newer licensing models and enable license updates transparently in the background when the software is started, without the customer having to take any additional action other than placing the purchase order.

Licensing for cross-platform applications made with Python, PHP, and JavaScript 


With HTML5 applications and environments, easy-to-deploy frameworks like Electron and node.js, and Docker containers, languages that used to be confined to the online world are becoming the focus of on-premise applications alike. Similarly, the technological barrier between cloud, edge and on-premise applications is becoming increasingly blurred. This change creates new conditions for software protection and licensing that CodeMeter Runtime, CodeMeter Protection Suite, CodeMeter Core API, and CodeMeter Cloud Lite address with unique strategies.

The Fastest Way to Protect Your Know-How 


Intellectual property can come in all shapes and sizes, spanning from algorithms mapped in software to sensitive documents or data made available to service technicians for their maintenance work. If your IP is stolen, you can always sue later on, but prevention is better than cure. With CodeMeter Protection Suite, Wibu-Systems provides a whole battery of IP protection tools that you can integrate quickly and easily into your software. These tools are tailored to suit the specificities of the development environments and target platforms used.

Your Migration Map to a Comprehensive Protection and Licensing System 


ISVs usually migrate to a new secure licensing technology in response to the more complex protection and/or licensing needs they have to confront with. Choosing a mature, interoperable, comprehensive, and widely adopted technology, developed independently by a fully dedicated vendor, makes even more sense when ISVs want more solid ground to stand on when they reach for higher sales goals. An array of use cases and associated migration approaches will help you realize whether you are ready to leapfrog into the future of license and entitlement management.

IP Protection for Siemens TIA Portal 


When you invest in Siemens TIA Portal®, you also want to safeguard your applications for Siemens PLC and HMI with a higher gear. CodeMeter License Central is the gateway between CodeMeter Keyring Password Manager (the user, password, and entitlement management tool) and CodeMeter Keyring for TIA Portal Password Provider (the component that bridges CodeMeter with the TIA Portal). You can then assign clear roles to your team members, protect the IP of your projects, and control user access with a hardware-based solution: CmDongle.

The Dongle is Dead. Long Live the Dongle 


For more than 30 years, dongles have been an effective choice for software protection. What software developers like about them is the great protection they offer against hackers, coming at comparatively low costs for them. Users, on the other hand, enjoy their portability and the option of using their licenses on the go and offline. But CmDongles have also one feature that beats one key weakness of typical dongle solutions in many industries and use cases: they are multivendor-capable.

Lean License Management via SAP 


The integration of CodeMeter License Central with SAP, the world champion business suite, offers a significant advancement in back office performance. License lifecycle management and entitlement are incorporated within the existing workflow. The ERP system is enriched with automatic features for generating license codes, transmitting them to the user, and tracking their activation.
