Protecting digital content is our passion. Our only passion! When companies like Sony, Kodak, Motorola and Siemens think of software security and DRM (Digital Rights Management) for documents or media, they think of Wibu-Systems.

Companies of this caliber expect reliable and distinctive security solutions. They recognize that a company leading the field in DRM technologies 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 DRM products, 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 three leading suppliers in the DRM anti-piracy industry. 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 algorithms. 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

An international jury chose CodeMeter® as the winner of the renowned SIIA CODiE Awards for the Best Content Rights and Delivery Solution in 2014. The German Federal Ministry of Economy and Technology awarded the coveted SimoBIT prize for secure mobile IT applications to Wibu-Systems and our collaborating partners. These are only two examples from our long list of awards.
