According to a recent press release, “WISeKey International Holding Ltd, a leading global cybersecurity, Blockchain and IoT company today announced that it has launched SensorsID, a strong Digital Identity solution designed to protect device identities and their data. Currently, WISeKey has an install base of over 1.2 billion IoT VaultIC chips in virtually all IoT sectors (smartcards, smart cities, drones, anti-counterfeiting, smart lighting, servers, mobile phones, etc.). WISeKey is uniquely positioned to be at the edge of IoT as VaultIC Secure Elements protect a huge amount of Big Data that, when analyzed with Artificial Intelligence (AI), can help industrial applications detect cybersecurity attacks or predict the failure of their equipment before it happens.”
The release continues, “Gartner estimates that over 20 billion devices will be connected by 2020. All of these devices will need security, and many of them will be sensors using secure IoT chips like VaultIC. As the world becomes more connected, there will be an exponential growth of the number of sensors .. from the environmental sensors in the atmosphere, the traffic on our roads, to the temperature of our homes and the location of our mobile phones. Experts predict that, by 2022, 1 trillion networked sensors will be embedded in the world around us – each one requiring strong digital identity, authentication and data protection.”
