Wibu-Systems has been chosen by the Swedish company Image Systems to provide its IP protection and license management solution for their new TEMA platform.
August 30, 2022 – Wibu-Systems, makers of the popular CodeMeter protection, licensing and security technologywas chosen by the Swedish company Image systems to provide its IP protection and license management solution for their new TEMA platform. Moving image analysis software specialists were looking for a balance between high quality security standards and ease of use.
After a successful proof of concept, Image Systems began distributing software modules with its invaluable intellectual property protected by Wibu-Systems’ CodeMeter technology. The development of the analysis software requires a lot of unique know-how. Since its origins in the early 1980s, the Swedish company has taken action against the misuse of software and the violation of its intellectual property rights. While the solution was effective, it also involved a cumbersome process of activating software licenses. As the company actively renews its product line, it has made the decision to also move to a new generation of license management technology. The requirements were as follows: The chosen solution must provide good protection against theft and reverse engineering and also be easy to install and activate by legitimate users.
Image Systems is working on a new generation of analysis applications on the TEMA (Track Eye Motion Analysis) platform. Several components have already been launched, secured by CodeMeter technology from Wibu-Systems. Since the company serves its customers both directly and through an OEM partner channel, it expected the security solution to cause as little friction as possible in the process. With CodeMeter, users can license the desired software functionality through a separate portal, a process that CodeMeter technology handles fully automatically.
The Swedish software company also wanted a flexible license registration system that would allow it to create freemium versions of the software, that is, software with limited functions that potential users could try for free. This was further made possible by CodeMeter License Center from Wibu-Systems. The decision was also driven by a desire to strike the right balance between security and convenience for the company’s customers in various industry sectors ranging from general engineering to machine vision technology. “Our product developers are very satisfied with the technical support provided by Wibu-Systems both in the proof of concept phase and during the actual implementation,” says Christofer Boo, product manager at Image Systems Motion Analysis.
Image Systems has customers in manufacturing, defense and other industries where the ability to accurately measure variations in digitally captured images provides important information for operational decisions. The analysis process may include tracking the repositioning or shape changes of moving objects in the captured images.
“Licensing and security are not necessarily a strength of developers. Image Systems’ experienced developers have worked for a long time with a solution to protect the company’s intellectual property. And while effective, they decided to step-by-step replace the solution with our CodeMeter technology because of its functionality, flexibility, and ease of use for the user of their software. We are very proud to have a Swedish pioneer in high-tech development as a customer,” said Marcel HartgerinkManaging Director, Wibu-Systems Nordic-Baltic Eight.
