Geneva – WISeKey was honored by the visit of Mme Doris Leuthard, Head of the Federal Department of Environment, Transport, Energy, and Communications in Switzerland at WISeKey’s Booth in the Swiss Pavilion at ITU Telecom World 2011. WISeKey founder Carlos Moreira took the opportunity to congratulate Mme Leuthard for her speech (photo) at the inaugural session of the conference on the risks facing the Internet and in particular the risks related to Cyber security, personal data protection, and child protection and the unique position of Switzerland as a neutral jurisdiction for a safer and more trusted Internet.
Since 1999, Geneva-based WISeKey and the OISTE Foundation have been working towards this endeavor, to transform the Internet into a reliable and fair tool for conducting secure electronic transactions. WISeKey – a WEF Global Growth company – has provided security technology to governments, enterprises, and consumers to authenticate identities and objects over the Internet and to protect data from security breaches by establishing solutions based on more than a decade of experience and an ever-evolving e-security solutions knowledge base.
The WISeKey is unique because it offers a totally neutral and geopolitically-aware trust model founded on its Swiss origins bringing PKI benefits to the mass market at affordable prices. With technology moving to the Cloud, secure solutions must also ensure government sovereignty over data and IT systems regardless of their physical location. WISeKey and OISTE have been serving public and private institutions by addressing these types of legal, operational, or infrastructural issues that must be resolved in order to benefit from advances in technology without compromising security or sovereignty.
