WISeKey establishes First of its kind Artificial Intelligence of Objects Laboratory (AIoT) in France
The WISeKey laboratory, located at Meyreuil, PROVENCE-ALPES-COTE D’AZUR France, integrates AI, IoT and cybersecurity to test and check the current security status of the ever-increasing number of devices connected in IoT networks
ZUG, Switzerland & GENEVA & Meyreuil, France – September 21, 2020 – WISeKey International Holding (“WISeKey”, SIX: WIHN, NASDAQ: WKEY), a leading IoT cybersecurity company announced the creation of an Artificial Intelligent of Things ( AIoT) laboratory (“the WISeKey Lab”) in France with 30 dedicated employees. The WISeKey Lab combines AI, IoT and cybersecurity to test and verify the current state of IoT security of networked devices.
The WISeKey Lab is in compliance with the international ISO 27001 certification for information security and provides IoT discovery devices on and off the network using digital identification and artificial intelligence to continuously analyze the behavior of IoT endpoints to identify cyber risks, protect information and critical systems and to quarantine suspicious or malicious devices. The WISeKey Lab uses AI-powered automation that shifts the focus of businesses from simply managing their current IoT operations to innovation and technological advancement and helps engineers solve their unique IoT challenges in automotive applications, communications, IT, consumer, industrial, medical, aerospace and defense. .
“WISeKey Lab will use its 30 years of experience in designing hardware and software capable of withstanding cyber attacks and in compliance with the highest certification standards. We have always had a holistic approach to the system in our DNA: from its architecture, to design, to manufacturing, through a very complex supply chain, to integration and deployment in the field, as well as providing identifying information. We believe that each step plays an important role in the safety of the final solution. This unique experience and expertise is what our clients will benefit from through our laboratory offerings, ”said Bernard VIAN, Director of WISeKey Lab. “In addition, we are making major efforts to put in place countermeasures against deep-learning attacks, which will be of great value to brands that deploy connected devices. The use of AI and predictive maintenance algorithms implemented via AIoT, thanks to our partnership with arago, allows us to quickly provide our customers with valuable information.
The WISeKey Lab provides IoT security assessment and auditing services to clients, including semiconductor design and encryption and source code, black box testing, and penetration testing. WISeKey’s strategy to leverage its lab through lasting relationships with strategic partners and startups working on AIoT and its derivatives, is designed to bring a flow of high-level clients in high demand for IoT cybersecurity solutions. , such as AI, digital identity and privacy, secure mobile communication, secure cloud computing, IoT, secure semiconductors and other innovative technologies offered by WISeKey.
WISekey AIoT integrates semiconductors, smart sensors, IoT systems, AI and data cloud offer customers a unique offer to boost innovation and digital transformation. Using cybersecurity technology and WISeKey’s IoT network, the data will be collected in HIRO (arago’s AI-based knowledge and data automation platform) where it can be processed and automated in real time in a highly secure environment.
AIoT is the brain that will power the nervous system of the network of IoT objects operating in the WISeKey ecosystem, which currently connects over 1.6 billion secure IoT devices with WISeKey’s VaultIC. With the introduction of 5G, the ecosystem will continue to grow at a much faster rate as 5G will allow every object, person and machine to connect. AIoT will integrate AI into core ecosystem infrastructure components, including RoT, semiconductors, and advanced computing. Specialized APIs are then used to ensure interoperability between device, software, and platform-level components to optimize system and network operations. The data processed through AIoT is then collected and made accessible to extract value and improve market information and knowledge for customers. AIoT also enables secure automation of business actions and decisions based on real-time data and enables IoT to operate independently with minimal human support, unlike the current state of the market which requires all actions are coded in advance according to predefined scenarios. With the use of AI and predictive maintenance algorithms implemented through AIoT, IoT devices will have the ability to dynamically determine actions to make decisions and self-program based on analytics and insights defined by the customer, which will lead to lower operating and maintenance costs for suppliers.
The value of adding AI to the WISeKey platform is its ability to quickly bring insights from data. Machine learning, an AI technology, can automatically identify patterns and detect anomalies in the data that sensors and smart devices collect, such as temperature, pressure, humidity, quality of air, vibrations and sound.
WISeKey (NASDAQ: WKEY; SIX Swiss Exchange: WIHN, NASDAQ: WKEY) is a leading global cybersecurity company currently deploying large-scale digital identity ecosystems for people and objects using Blockchain, AI and IoT respecting humans as the backbone of the Internet. WISeKey microprocessors secure the ubiquitous computing that shapes today’s Internet of everything. WISeKey IoT has an installed base of over 1.5 billion microchips in virtually all IoT industries (connected cars, smart cities, drones, agricultural sensors, anti-counterfeiting, smart lighting, servers, computers, phones mobiles, crypto tokens, etc.). WISeKey is uniquely positioned to be at the forefront of IoT because our semiconductors produce an enormous amount of big data which, when analyzed with artificial intelligence (AI), can help industrial applications predict their failure. equipment before it happens.
Our technology is trusted by the Switzerland-based Cryptographic Root of Trust (“RoT”) of OISTE / WISeKey provides secure authentication and identification, in physical and virtual environments, for Internet of Things, blockchain and artificial intelligence. The WISeKey RoT serves as a common trust anchor to ensure the integrity of online transactions between objects and between objects and people. For more information visit www.wisekey.com.
