Geneva/Brussels (ots) - WISeKey SA announced today that it will work closely with Microsoft® Corporation to educate, promote and deliver identity management solutions to governments in Europe and around the world. WISeKey, a leading global provider of security, identity and trust solutions to the world's premier organizations, has been named a Lead Partner for eID Solutions delivery by Microsoft. WISeKey has also been named a Microsoft Certified Partner and has recently achieved the Microsoft Independent Software Vendor (ISV)/Software Solutions competency through the Microsoft Partner Program.
With the growing adoption of digital communication, the conveyance of identity is also rapidly moving to a digital form. With WISeKey, affordable and effective identification and authentication systems now exist. These solutions meet the requirements of validating identity as well as holding individuals accountable for their actions. Governments around the world are looking to upgrade their Identity Documents to be inline with higher security requirements to protect and prevent against counterfeiting and criminal misuse of information.
Integrating interoperable, easy-to-use, trustworthy, multipurpose electronic Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) technology to manage personal identification in the supply of electronic government services has now become a cost affordable solution. Leveraging the Microsoft Windows Server platform's built-in certificate management capabilities, WISeKey enables organizations and governments to leverage their current investment by adding functionalities of secure electronic identities through the CertifyID infrastructure.
The Microsoft and WISeKey solution will be showcased at the new Executive Briefing Center for European Innovation in the presence of European and Belgian Government Officials, Industry Partners and Media, opening today in Brussels. The solution will also be promoted at Microsoft Technology Centers around the world and with other infrastructure partners.
"Accelerating innovation can only happen through strong partnerships between different parties in the private and public sector," said Jean-Philippe Courtois, President Microsoft International. "We showcase this collaboration at our Centre for European Innovation by hosting innovative European companies like WISeKey."
"Having worked with Microsoft since 2004 we are honored to have been named Lead Partner for eID Solutions in recognition of our Certified Partner and Microsoft ISV status together. This evolution of our relationship augments the announcement at the Government Leaders Forum Europe this year of the partnership between WISeKey and Microsoft to enable the issuance of secure eID for citizens," said Carlos Moreira, CoFounder and Chairman of WISeKey.. "This will help WISeKey's European based innovation to benefit from Microsoft assistance via its local representatives, increasing our potential as ISV by sharing information and mobilizing people very quickly."
