Security starts with strong foundations

When companies like SONY, Kodak, Motorola, and Siemens think of software protection, licensing, and security to safeguard their digital know-how, they think of Wibu-Systems. Companies of this caliber expect reliable and distinctive solutions. They recognize that a company leading the secure licensing field since 1989, a company that is consistently winning industry awards, and a company that is anticipating tomorrow's threats instead of just responding to yesterday's problems, is the right company for them to do business with.

Wibu-Systems' mission is to provide “Perfection in Protection, Licensing and Security” for all software, firmware, and digital media, to keep improving customer service, and to treat our suppliers fairly and openly. We are committed to raising the next generation of business leaders by investing in their education and directly supporting youth activities.

Always Looking Forward

Wibu-Systems is one of the world’s three leading suppliers in the software licensing industry, ranks among the top two vendors of hardware-based software protection, and has no equal when it comes to embedded software monetization. Our business has grown at an annual rate of 20% or more, year on year. Even through periods of economic hardship, we have managed to maintain this rate of growth by intensifying our R&D efforts and strategic partnerships.

Wibu-Systems has always been an early adopter of new manufacturing technologies such as miniaturization and chip-on-board designs or the latest encryption methods. We also create systems which go on to become standards for others companies. We hold multiple international patents and collaborate with important consortia, committees and research institutions, including the USB Implementers Forum, BITKOM, VDE, and the FZI (Research Center for Information Technologies in Karlsruhe).

R&D has always been an important mainstay of our business. Being close to the KIT (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology), one of Germany’s three elite universities, has brought us great benefits. We cooperate closely with universities and many other institutions, and contribute our expertise and knowledge to important industry projects. Leading corporations, such as AutoDesk, Apple, HP, IBM, Intel, Microsoft and Sun have included us in their developer programs.

Always an Award Winner

CODiE Award 2017

The international jury of SIIA has chosen CodeMeter, our flagship technology, as the winner of their renowned CODiE award a full three times in our history, most recently as the Best Content Rights and Entitlement Solution for 2017. Blurry Box, one of the newest components strengthening the encryption value of CodeMeter Protection Suite, won the top honors at the German IT Security Awards in 2014. These are only two examples from our long list of awards.
