Geneva (ots) - The newly redesigned WISeID Password and Personal Data Protector Version 3S continues to offer strong and secure storage of Personal Identifiable Information (PII), details of an individual that contain unique identity information.

WISeID continues to provide a "trusted digital identity" and is exploring integration with NFC technology to provide authenticated access, transaction, and communication benefits for WISeID users. WISeID plans to expand its consumer capabilities by the London 2012 Olympics, with enhancements such as the ease of conducting secure payments with a wave of the phone anywhere contactless card readers are used; secure building admittance and entry to events, transportation systems, and parking; effortless access to special offers, coupons, and discounts from smart posters or billboards.

Using its established e-Voting technology and expertise securing operations of banks and governments, WISeKey is enhancing WISeID to combine its strong authentication with social networking platforms to offer a medium for safe, binding transactions that can include voting as well as processing payment.

WISeID is available today from the App Store or Android Market, and it offers an expanded range of unique consumer protection features, including:

- free email certificates for registered users

- encrypted data backup on the Cloud

- encrypted messaging to maintain privacy of SMS, emails, and Facebook (Apple only)

In addition to the new design of the mobile app, WISeKey launched a desktop version for Mac OSX, making it even easier to add and update account details. A PC version is expected this spring. WISeID previously hit the top 5 iPhone apps in its category in the U.S.A. and is among the top utility apps worldwide.
