ProProtect – Make sure you are not affected by product piracy

Machine producers have an increasing problem with product piracy. This starts with copying spare parts and reaches complex solutions and embedded software.

The importance of software innovations increases, therefore a good protection is necessary. At the same time, the importance of production data increases.

The aim of ProProtect

The aim is to offer standardized solutions against product piracy for machines. We have focused on using existence software solutions, but to make them available for production:

  • Development of protection hardware for implementation into machine. This makes it increasingly difficult to copy machines, components or single functions
  • Protection of production data
  • Introduction of a machine diary to increase efficiency through service

Use for Everyone

Our vision is to protect the benefit for every single one in the production process

  • Machine producers make it more difficult to copy their product and therefore also make sure that production data is safe
  • Producer of secure hardware have found a new target market
  • Developers have a new standardized system with higher security
  • Consultants offer secured production data and support customers to implement security solutions

Copy Protection

Using SmartCards, Dongles or TPM, you have the possibility to include this solution in many different hardware and software environments. Standardized interfaces und network ready components make it possible to integrate such solutions in complex systems.

Embroidery machines and produced textile products are target of product piracy.

Standardized Solutions

Industrial standards affect the development of components. Standardized Solutions such as CodeMeter or TPMs reduce the costs. Software such as Realtime Linux or Windows CE and the control of standard software make it possible and more easy to connect the control and components.

  • Supports operating systems:
    Windows embedded, Windows CE, Real time Linux and Real time Windows such as VxWorks
  • Retrofittable:
    The safe solution has to be applicable with the existing solution

ProProtect – It is our aim to make software safe and to stop product piracy
