WISeKey and IBM integrate strengths to secure IoT
WISeKey International Holding Ltd have collaborated with IBM to secure the Internet of Things (IoT) using WISeKey’s leading technology. The solution takes care of IBM Watson IoT Platform, by adding extended capabilities to secure IoT devices and the management thereof from a central location.
The integrated solution provides enhanced security of sensitive data exchanged between devices across the IoT networks. By doing so, customers benefit from an increased trust in the data handled by their application, and a reduced risk of revenue loss due to cyber-attacks of all kinds thus leverage a greater value of their business.
“The fact of IBM choosing WISeKey to provide security technology to complement their Watson IoT offering validates our strategy and differential value proposition, based on a vertical platform approach that secures the IoT, from the Root of Trust to the chip,” said Carlos Moreira, Founder and CEO of WISeKey.
The power of Watson IoT Platform will enable device manufacturers and businesses to build specialised, integrated solutions to solve their business challenges. The Platform implements a “messaging broker” that allows the exchange of information between devices and business applications, using a secure Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) technology to bring authentication and data encryption.
