From its zero-risk bunker deep in the Swiss Alps, WISeKey maintains the common global root certificate. Simply put, it has all the keys to global digital security jingling in its pockets. The common global root certificate is part of an agreed upon public key infrastructure that puts invisible "watermarks" on digital data to certify it as valid and un-hacked. With global e-commerce bouncing secure data between cell phones, laptops, and business systems (example: bank wire transfers), WISeKey is what stands between hackers and the ultimate bank robbery. The company also develops and manufactures encryption and security systems for e-mail software and personal electronic devices. It was founded in 1999.
