A new press release reports, “WISeKey International Holding Ltd, a leading global cybersecurity and IoT company today announced that its WISeKey Trusted Hardware to the Cloud Ecosystem has reached significant milestones: over 1 billion objects have been already secured by WISeKey VaultIC Chips and over 3 billion Root of Trust (RoT) are recognized by all operating systems (OS) and applications like internet browsers or email applications. This unique solution ensures the authenticity, confidentiality and integrity of on-line transactions. The ever-increasing volume of trusted data being gathered and stored, enables the rise of big data and AI/machine learning, automating the process of gaining meaningful insights for customers deploying this solution.”
The release goes on, “In order to protect the Internet of Things (IoT), security needs to be embedded at the very beginning of the device microchip design, so the RoT is also embedded in connected devices, to secure the interactions among objects and between objects and business applications. The WISeKey Ecosystem install base has expanded 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 IoT revenue mode is recurrent, as what gets consumed and measured on a repeating basis are not the microchips or the RoT, but the authenticated data they produce and the services that this data enables.”
