Geneva/New York City, N.Y (ots) - WISeKey and Microsoft cooperate
to empower Biscay Citizens by transforming local government services
WISeKey, a leading IT security company, and Microsoft, announced
at the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) meeting that they had
successfully worked with the Biscay government to launch a
next-generation citizen services platform (CSP).
When citizens log on to the Biscay portal, they no longer have to
go through a vast variety of links, pages and web sites: the Biscay
Citizen Services Platform is customized across governmental
departments, meeting the specific needs of the citizen and protecting
This cutting-edge approach takes complex citizen identity
management systems, government services and e-government portals and
packages them in an accessible and functional manner, allowing
citizens to independently use the services and tools that governments
such as Biscay provide.
"In Biscay, we look forward to a future where the benefits of the
WISeKey and Microsoft CSP technology become increasingly accessible
to all citizens, allowing them to securely interact with and make use
of government services," said Jose Luis Bilbao, Biscay President.
"The Biscay Citizen Services Platform clearly demonstrates our
commitment to using secure electronic identities to globally empower
citizens. We have seen both citizens and governments benefit from
this technology, and we work tirelessly in both developed and
developing markets to ensure that our technologies empower citizens
and other stakeholders in innovative and meaningful ways," stated
Carlos Moreira, WISeKey CEO & Chairman.
Niels Soelberg, Vice-President Public Sector EMEA Microsoft said,
"We are very happy with our cooperation with WISeKey and the Biscay
government on this new CSP, allowing the citizens to interact
securely and efficiently with their government and giving them the
tools to transform society in the process."
WISeKey maintains its ongoing commitment to make this technology a
reality for countries across the world by working with organizations
such as the CGI, the World Economic Forum Global Growth Companies
community, the Association of International Mobility and the OISTE
