Once again, Medica, the world’s leading trade fair for the medical industry, will be running in parallel to Compamed. This strategic choice is set to ignite an interdisciplinary debate in the medical community around innovation for outpatient and clinical care. According to the European Patent Office, no other technological sector submitted as many patent applications worldwide in 2015 as the field of medical technology.
In particular, the digitalization of patients is gaining ground and the relevance of software applications in the medical field is skyrocketing, which makes it necessary for healthcare businesses to acquire an additional layer of technology in order to implement a mature monetization strategy and a security-by-design approach.
CodeMeter®, Wibu-Systems’ technology for protection, licensing, and security, allows versatile license entitlement and the safeguarding of the intellectual property of medical ISVs. Sirona, the German dental powerhouse, uses the complete potential of CodeMeter: the software is protected against piracy and reverse engineering with ultimate encryption technologies, and secure licenses are then delivered via USB dongles; the logistic process is also simplified with CodeMeter License Central, the license lifecycle management application that automates the process of creating, delivering, and managing licenses for software and digital content. In the case of Custo med, a German medical diagnostics producer, a variety of internal and external hardware and software-based license containers has been deployed for easy handling and complex dynamic licensing models in demanding clinical environments, for custom, straightforward license distribution across many locations.
