The textile industry is one of the pioneer sectors in the rise of truly globalized supply chains. Fashion brands or high-tech fabric makers often operate a globally dispersed business, with designers far away from the actual production of their creations. ZSK Stickmaschinen GmbH stands as a critical lynchpin in that global system, as invaluable and much-coveted designs and production data pass through its high-tech design tools and embroidery machines – an alluring target for product pirates and more ruthless actors on the grey market.
ZSK Stickmaschinen relies on Wibu-Systems to protect its own business model and the legitimate business of the users of its machines. CodeMeter allows only the correctly licensed use of the embroidery machines; by encrypting the software controlling the ZSK machines and the production data, Wibu-Systems’ technology stops would-be IP thieves from stealing invaluable branded designs and counterfeiters from replicating the textile machines’ inner workings themselves.
With a tiny CmDongle slotted unobtrusively into its machines, ZSK Stickmaschinen achieves its double purpose: The integrity of its own technology and the designs of its clients are protected, and the system becomes a strong gatekeeper in a globalized and virtualized business: Versatile licensing allows complete control over production volumes and ensures that data can move through the collective network without the threat of manipulation. Access to client documents is securely limited to legitimate users and, optionally, to specific periods defined by the license.
