Recently , the Karlsruhe IT Security Initiative came to us to ask whether they could lift the veil and show some visitors how we work our magic at a very special behind-the-scenes event here on the Wibu-Systems Campus . As one of the very few producers of security hardware in Germany , we are more than just pioneers for secure IT and software . We are ourselves a model for good practices in this area , and all of that without magic or trickery . We know which challenges exist in the procurement , processing , quality assurance , and certification of security hardware areas , and we can demonstrate how we overcome these challenges in our modern production facilities . In particular , we can answer the especially tough question of how we can put in place and maintain a completely secure lifecycle when manufacturing our products .
Wibu-Systems is a partner you can count on to supply you with products that will be available and will continue to be developed and updated long into the future . This is our promise even in these difficult times of strained chip supplies and price hikes . Our long-term approach to procurement is paying dividends now .
Regular innovation is a crucial ingredient for our growth and we have a track record to show for it , as we documented by winning the German Innovation Award for CmCloud and AxProtector JavaScript . A different type of innovation can be seen in the cooperative work done in our IT Security Club : www . wibu . com / itsc . This is your chance to get involved by becoming member !
This issue of the KEYnote magazine includes more details about our investments into our own IT and information security in accordance with the ISO27001 standard . You will also read about new products like the License Portal with reseller integration , the choice of hosting packages for CodeMeter License Central , the option of using a CodeMeter FSB in the cloud , license monitoring , usage reporting , and consumption-based licenses . And there ’ s more : You can also discover our roadmap for post-quantum cryptography , read a great success story about the secure 3D printing of automotive parts from our work with Daimler , and lots of other news .
I wish you all a safe and healthy autumn and winter and lots of energy to help you master the challenges ahead . And we may see each other and have a chance to speak at one of the coming expos , such as Electronica , Medica , Formnext , or SPS .
Best regards , Oliver Winzenried CEO
