WISeKey’s VaultiTrust™ Delivers Secure IoT Digital Identities to Global Corporations

Generation, injection and management of digital identity for IoT objects is at the heart of many connected systems and offers secure anticounterfeiting and traceability solutions

WISeKey offers this unique comprehensive service with VaultiTrust

Geneva, Switzerland – January 27, 2020: WISeKey International Holding Ltd. (“WISeKey”) (SIX: WIHN, NASDAQ: WKEY), a leading global cybersecurity and IoT company, announced today that it has commenced implementation of VaultiTrust large scale contracts for several clients. As per the terms of these contracts, through its VaultiTrust solution, WISeKey will be generating and inserting robust digital identity into secure elements used in critical applications such as smart grids, cloud security, drones, smart homes, Industry 4.0 and battery protection.

The expanding of Internet of Things (IoT) is convenient and allows the implementation of many disruptive applications, but it is also riddled with risks. As the intelligence of devices on the edge increases, so does the attack surface. Hackers can easily and remotely take control of devices, intercept and manipulate data, tamper with routers and servers and take control of applications. Cybersecurity sits on cryptographic tools that protect systems from device-to-cloud. WISeKey’s suite of hardware and software products create secure connections from the edge, where sensors and connected devices are creating data, all the way to the cloud, where decisions are made on how that data is processed and used. WISeKey’s VaultiTrust is part of this consistent offer.

“VaultiTrust illustrates the one-stop-shop strategy that WISeKey has put in place to best serve its customers seeking comprehensive security from device-to-cloud,” said Olivier Debelleix, Director of Brand Protection & Wearable Security Business Unit for WISeKey. “All our secure elements, including the new NanoSealRT and the VaultIC family, are supported by VaultiTrust which is at the core of WISeKey’s IoT strategy. VaultiTrust’s comprehensive trust service solution meets the security needs of many large players in the IoT market. Furthermore, in October 2019, WISeKey joined the SAP® PartnerEdge Program and gained access to a much broader range of software tools and security solutions for its clients. WISeKey has similar partnerships with IBM, Microsoft, Oracle and is an active member of the Cybersecurity Tech Accord, working with over 150 leading companies to promote a safe online world.”

WISeKey’s VaultiTrust offers two modules: trusted data generation and secure elements provisioning. VaultiTrust takes advantage of WISeKey’s government grade security certified offerings and end-to-end digital security management to generate identity keys and efficiently install them into chips. VaultiTrust’s web portal complements the service by offering an easy way to configure, manage and track production. WISeKey operates FIPS 140-2 Level 3 certified Hardware Security Modules (HSM) to efficiently generate secure data. These HSM are located in a WISeKey Common Criteria EAL5+ and ISO27001 certified backed up data center and the HSM can be shared only upon customer’s request. WISeKey also offers a cryptography customization service whenever needed.
