PARIS, November 29, 2010 - WISeKey, based in Geneva, is known worldwide as a leader in digital
identities and cryptography.
WISeKey France brings the number of affiliates in the group, which is
very active in Brazil, Russia and Spain, to ten.
WISeKey France's creation is a major step for the development and use of
WISeKey's skills in countries where the PKI market is already mature. "France
created the SIM card, the essential element in all modern mobile phones.
Today, SIM cards allow the storage of digital identities," stated Carlos
Moreira, WISeKey Founder and CEO.
WISeKey France has signed a first contract with Biolog, specialists in
"RFID" radio identification, to answer the traceability needs of blood
transfusion products. This project integrates the digital identity into an
electronic label for each RFID chip, which is encrypted and digitally signed
with a PKI key from WISeKey. The system manages remotely and in real time the
stocks, temperature of the storage and the state of the bags.
WISeKey France is assisted by a supervisory board, under Jacques
Simonnet's Presidency. "We have made contact within France's industry to
bring disruptive technology that improves companies' competitiveness through
the confidential exchange and protection of information. Through the OISTE
Foundation, based on Swiss law, WISeKey offers the neutrality of this
"confidentiality", which has become essential in both private business and
the public sector," said Jacques Simmonet, Chairman WISeKey France.
Carlos Moreira concluded, "We wanted Jacques Vannier, Michel Fleuriet and
Serge Ferré, experts in domains that use digital projects on a grand scale,
to join our Supervisory Board, allowing us to implement our strategy in the
banking, industry, telecom and luxury sectors."
