Karlsruhe, Germany – Wibu-Systems (Head Office: Minato-ku, Tokyo, Japan; Representative Director: Tomoki Maruyama) has signed an agency agreement with Toshiba Information Systems (Japan) Corporation (Head Office: Kawasaki-shi, Kanagawa, Japan; CEO: Sosuke Ito). Under the new partnership and with immediate effect, Toshiba Information Systems will begin selling CodeMeter, the all-in-one solution from Wibu-Systems for software protection and license management.
The new age of IoT and Industrie 4.0 promises to slash engineering, logistics, and maintenance costs by manufacturing hardware whose functions can rapidly be activated, updated or upgraded on demand. However, the software and data contained in and running such industrial hardware has become an increasingly important and at-risk asset. CodeMeter, the mainstay of Wibu-Systems, protects the IP associated with software, firmware, and sensitive data, and enables secure licensing for the makers and users of industrial controllers and manufacturing equipment.
Tomoki Maruyama, Representative Director of Wibu-Systems’ Japan office, celebrates the signature of the contract: "I am very pleased about our new agreement with Toshiba Information Systems Co., Ltd. As the powerhouse behind a large share of the embedded system landscape in the Japanese market, our new partner has a long track record of success and strong relationships with many customers. Through this new sales channel, these customers will now be able to benefit from the wide range of embedded security solutions powered by our CodeMeter technology."
