As a trailblazer for the future of mobility and a leading innovator behind ingenious technologies for electric car charging, safety and security concepts, Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems (ADAS) and autonomous vehicles, and the AUTOSAR Adaptive Platform, Vector’s business depends on selling many thousands of licenses every year. Protecting its technology from piracy is a challenge that Vector faces head-on with their Vector Network Interfaces (VNIs) and licenses associated with a combination of Wibu-Systems hardware and software containers. Integrating this system into the production landscape and streamlining its delivery called for a leaner and standardized solution, built right into the company’s sales processes.

In mid-2018, Vector turned to CodeMeter for a holistic system coupling CmActLicenses, bound with SmartBind® to the target devices for ease of use, and CmDongles for software with more stringent security and mobility needs. A key feature is the use of CmActLicenses, stored in and bound to Vector’s unique VNIs.

The system’s backbone for license creation, delivery, and management is CodeMeter License Central, fully integrated with Vector’s SAP system by Wibu-Systems’ dedicated partner, Informatics, an Austrian centre of excellence for SAP. Wibu-Systems and Informatics bring together many years of experience with SAP and CodeMeter to bear on their shared projects.
