Hackers Reverse Engineering Uncovered


Latest hacking strategies unveiled for best in class protection systems

We all know that in order to defend ourselves from burglars we need safety doors and alarm systems. But what happens if their installation is left to unskilled craftsmen? The same analogy can be extended to the world of software protection.

Wibu-Systems has dedicated 20+ years to refine the best practices that can allow Independent Software Vendors and Original Equipment Manufacturers to protect their intellectual and business assets.

Given the multiplying attempts of hacking that we have also recently documented in our latest KEYnote, it is essential to implement software protection in an optimal way. This process is the key to make sure that no duplicated copy of your licenses is ever used without your authorization, no manipulation of your code is ever possible, no reverse-engineering is ever allowed.
