) is the one of
the fastest growing eSecurity company in the world. A leading Swiss
information security and identity management software and services

European and Swiss institutional and private investors.
The investment will enable WISekey to expand its operations in
BRIC countries, capitalize on the global demand for its technology
and the explosive growth of WISekey tools for the encryption of data
and for digital identification of individuals and objects. These
technologies are aimed to fight against counterfeiting, to provide

Internet and portable phones, etc. Governments, international
organizations, watch manufacturers and the telecommunication
companies require our services.
WISekey is one of the 8 companies in Switzerland who are
candidates for an IPO as soon the market stabilizes. The fact that
WISekey took only 4 months to raise $ 20 million from the pre-IPO
placement is infusing confidence in institutional investors for the
duration of the IPO.
WISeKey, a World Economic Forum High Growth Company, is expanding
its global footprint via a group of strategic partnerships with key
partners. WISeKey's global expansion is targeting BRIC economies as a
priority, with several major wins recently in Brazil, Russian
Federation, India and China. This enhances existing operations in the
USA and Middle East from the Swiss Hub.
