Узнать больше о важных этапах жизни компании Wibu-Systems, основанной в 1989 году.


  • After the successful conclusion of the original IUNO project, Germany’s national reference project for cyber-security in Industrie 4.0, in 2018, Wibu-Systems is back to lead IUNO2PAKT, a new iteration working to reinforce the security and resilience of the modern industrial landscape. Wibu-Systems contributes its novel CodeMeter Certificate Vault technology to facilitate the use of certificates as a currency of trust in machine communication. Designed to work with the OPC UA stacks used extensively in industrial automation and adding the versatility of CodeMeter’s choice of containers for certificates, the approach promises to add the necessary ease-of-use and reliable security that certificates need to realize their full potential for the connected industry of tomorrow.
  • Joining the high-profile SiEvEI 4.0 consortium spearheaded by Siemens AG, Wibu-Systems contributes its expertise to the development and introduction of a strong hardware and software chain of trust (COT) that is needed to guarantee the agility and responsiveness promised by the vision of smart factories and Industry 4.0. With Wibu-Systems’ expertise in the field of secure smart items and certificate management, the SiEvEI 4.0 project is expanding the potential of the existing technology to provide AI-powered, holistic protection, monitoring, and management capabilities for smart manufacturing systems.
  • Coinciding with Wibu-Systems’ own construction projects for the erection of its next headquarters and the House of IT Security, the DigiFab4KMU project is taking recent advances in computer-aided planning and construction as well as building information management (BIM) to a new level with an integrated virtualization system that brings the idea of digital twins from the industrial automation world to the field of construction and building management. Wibu-Systems benefits from the system as one of its pioneering users and brings its own experiences and insights to the table for the design of optimized Industry-4.0-standard processes in industrial construction.


  • As Wibu-Systems continues to grow on a global scale and its CodeMeter technology is being embraced by an ever larger user base, the team and its solutions are receiving international plaudits and acknowledgement for the value they contribute. In particular, the company has won the GLOBAL foreign trade award for its business expansion into global markets. CmStick/B received the coveted iF Design Award for its elegant, sturdy, and compact housing. The new CodeMeter Certificate Vault was met with great acclaim at SPS, where it topped the Best-in-Show Award and won a strong runner-up position for the Automation Award. Finally, CodeMeter also made a splash at the Innovation Awards in Italy, the Best Healthcare IoT Security Solution Awards in the US, and the Milestones in Electronics Awards in Germany.
  • 1989-2019: Wibu-Systems is proud to play an active role in enabling the strength and securing the future of the global economy. Our work represents an important contribution to the protection of intellectual property, the creation of novel business models, and security everywhere. We strive to inspire trust with transparency and user-friendly solutions. We address the challenges of the digital transformation and connected infrastructures – going beyond the legislative requirements and the commercial interests of our own business – with our commitment to digital sovereignty in our society.
  • With the multitude and variety of threats in the digital world, unity in diversity is the key: the House of IT Security that we are building wall-to-wall with our new head offices is designed to combine academic excellence with enterprising minds to boost IT security research and practice, to act as an amplifier for the agility and energy of growing startups, to attract international companies pursuing IT security projects and academic and commercial partnerships to Karlsruhe, to generate new jobs and revenue in the region, and to become a physical beacon of IT security.
  • Our partnership with the Baden-Wuerttemberg Cooperative State University (DHBW) enters a new stage: For several years, we have been offering dual courses in computer science. With the start of the new academic year, we are also participating in dual training for software engineers specializing in business informatics. The results are staggering: 80% of graduates from the dual study courses sign permanent employment contracts long before the end of their studies!
  • Under the leadership of Infineon Technologies AG and as part of the ALESSIO research project Alessioframework, the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied and Integrated Security (AISEC), Giesecke+Devrient Mobile Security, Siemens, the Technical University of Munich, and Wibu-Systems have developed updatable security mechanisms for connected computer applications and embedded systems that can provide state-of-the-art protections over the long term.


  • To expand its worldwide presence, Wibu-Systems has opened a new wholly owned daughter 
    company, WIBU-SYSTEMS K.K., in Tokyo, Japan, which adds to the existing subsidiaries in Europe, U.S., and the Asia-Pacific region. The new Far Eastern stronghold is going to provide dedicated expertise to local software-powered businesses and intelligent device manufacturers.
  • After three years of collaborative research between its 21 members, the IUNO project (the German national reference project for cyber-security in Industrie 4.0) has delivered innovative use cases. In particular, Wibu-Systems took part in three live demonstrations: a secure and cloud-based technology data marketplace with TRUMPF, the hardening of Balluff’s OPC UA reader with a CodeMeter secure element, and IP protection and licensing with an Infineon TPM.
  • Oliver Winzenried was chosen as one of the “Managers of the Year 2018” in the Manager of the year 2018“Pioneers & Innovators“ category in a survey of more than 7,000 readers of Markt&Technik, the German weekly electronics magazine. At the award ceremony, he announced the forthcoming opening of the House of IT Security in Karlsruhe, Germany, which will gather other enterprises, start-ups, and researchers in the pursuit of greater technological goals.



  • Blurry Box LogoTo prove the robustness and validity of Blurry Box, we held a global hackers’ contest; hundreds took part and worked hard to crack a game protected with Blurry Box over three full weeks. The independent jury consisting of leading IT security scientists proved that no single exploit was fully successful. The sum of €50,000 that was originally offered for a complete hacking solution went towards further research and development.
  • Blurry Box cryptography technology, now fully integrated into 2017 Electronic Product of the year Wibu-Systems’ CodeMeter protection, licensing, and security platform, received the Product of the Year award from Electronic Product magazine. The jury took into account the need for greater security that today’s digitized industrial world depends on to realize the complete vision of Industrie 4.0.

  • Unprecedently, CodeMeter has received acclaim in two SIIA Business Technology CODiE Awards categories, winning as the Best Content Rights & Entitlement Solution and being named finalist in the Best Endpoint Management Solution category. This achievement underlines CodeMeter flexible and agnostic capability to serve the traditional software industry and the Industrial Internet of Things alike.
