About Wibu-Systems


Wibu-Systems is an innovative security technology leader in the global software licensing market. Founded in 1989 by two technology entrepreneurs, Oliver Winzenried and Marcellus Buchheit, the company is focused upon a singular mission: to deliver the highest level of protection, licensing, and security for digital assets and intellectual property in an increasingly connected world. Our solutions are used globally by software publishers and manufacturers of intelligent devices who distribute their applications through PCs, mobile devices, embedded systems, PLCs, and microcontrollers.

Our Commitment

Early on, we adopted our motto “Perfection in Protection, Licensing, and Security”, a maxim that has been our cornerstone in the development of innovative solutions for protections against reverse engineering and counterfeiting; licensing of software enabled functions in applications, devices and machine software; and security for these devices and machines against malicious tampering.

While the modern world continues to evolve and new technology challenges abound, we maintain an unwavering focus on our mission and our deep rooted commitment to providing our global customers with sophisticated protection mechanisms and versatile strategies to leverage new licensing-based monetization opportunities.

Our customers include world leaders across a wide array of industries, from healthcare and medical devices to industrial automation, engineering, retail, and banking. The list goes on.

Our Technology

We take great pride in developing solutions that are platform independent, embrace interoperability, and are tested to the highest quality standards that German engineering has to offer.

Over the years, our company leaders, products, and technologies have received many industry awards for excellence. Our flagship CodeMeter license lifecycle management platform earned several international recognitions both as a content rights and entitlement solution in office applications and as an endpoint management solution in the industrial realm.

But we are never complacent. R&D has always been an important mainstay of our business. We actively collaborate with leading technology vendors in R&D projects focused on Industrie 4.0, IIoT, and OPC UA among others, and actively participate in industry organizations like the Association for Advancing Automation, Open Industry 4.0 AllianceTrusted Computing Group to foster security best practices, all for a better, more secure world.

Our Vision

The digitalization of virtually every facet of our society has far reaching implications, none more significant than security for the massive amounts of data proliferating across the Internet, protection for the thousands upon thousands of connected devices and systems, and the safety of human life. 

Security is paramount, and as the global connected ecosystem evolves, Wibu-Systems will continue to lead the way with extraordinary vision and innovative solutions for today and the unforeseen challenges of the future.
