Hanover (CeBIT) – Wibu-Systems (Hall 7, A35) announced today that the CmCard/E is the new Card module making the CodeMeter® Digital Rights Management (DRM) technology now available under the ExpressCard® form factor. The CodeMeter DRM system is a proven and highly flexible protection technology for digital products and has been well adopted by many software vendors since its introduction in 2003.

"CeBIT of this year is for us the opportunity to enlarge our scope of hardware solutions by releasing the new card module CmCard/E providing a 4 GB of flash in addition to our CodeMeter DRM system," said Oliver Winzenried, CEO and founder of Wibu-Systems AG. "With ExpressCard modules and ExpressCard sockets now becoming widely available we follow our customer needs for a higher performing technology. With the new card we can support larger storage capacities for all kind of applications including the capability of protecting large audio and video files. CodeMeter security products integrate with all mayor platforms based on Windows, Apple and Linux. Consumer and Industrial Electronics will be next areas where the adoption of the ExpressCard standard will take place. We are ready to serve those markets and their needs by offering our protection solutions for intellectual property assets to be protected in more complex environments."

“The use of ExpressCard technology in Digital Rights Management is an exciting next step in the evolution of this technology,” said Brad Saunders, chairman, PCMCIA, the trade association that developed the ExpressCard Standard. “WIBU’s CodeMeter system is an illustration of how ExpressCard technology can be applied to facilitate the protection of intellectual property assets across the globe. Wibu-Systems joins the many other PCMCIA members who have introduced modules in areas such as connectivity, communications, memory, storage, security and entertainment.”
