Behind the acronyms, the private information of citizens is at stake – and so is industrial espionage. In business, know-how is essential for survival. It can take many forms: algorithms or software processes in IT or parts and components built into physical devices and machines. Manufacturing data, which can include invaluable intellectual property and production know-how about the complete product, is also affected. In an ever more integrated world, the ‘security’ of open systems has become a top priority. Governments across the world are actively investing into research in the field, be it in Europe with its ISO62443 standards, in the United States ISA99, or in Asia. Protection against these threats needs increasingly sophisticated solutions. Licensing and monitoring are becoming more and more important in traditional IT to give users as much freedom to use their products as possible, but still allow accurate billing. In manufacturing, resilient protections have become essential in the fight against cyber-attacks and illicit manipulation. With CodeMeter, our research and development efforts cover both flanks: CmLicenseCentral has expanded modules such as retail, usage metering, and electronic software distribution functionality; our tools make integrity protection easier and more effective; and we are supporting more and more industry environments and standards. We do this to give our users a system they can depend on for the long term with solutions that fulfill their requirements both today and tomorrow.
