A Crucial Step for WISeKey

The Geneva firm has established ties with Apple, Android and Microsoft

GENEVA, Switzerland, December 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

WISeID is a biometric authentication solution able to store all your passwords, PIN numbers, etc. in a digital, encrypted safe. It is available on the iPhone, Android and even in Windows. The Swiss electronic wallet is therefore becoming, de facto, a gateway between various operating systems. It can be used on your PC, tablet or mobile phone, whether you are accessing your Facebook page, making an online payment (the company is associated with Bancorp, the leader in prepaid cards in the USA), or even using your telephone as a boarding pass on a plane. With a model where you do not pay for the application but for the storage of data (anonymous) in a secure cloud, WISeKey has already attracted over 30 million users. Its CEO, Carlos Moreira, is expecting this number to increase tenfold over the next twelve months now that WISeKey is a multi-platform app.

The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regulatory scrutiny and increasing consumer lack of trust in technology in general.

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by sharing information within the building and with outside city infrastructure via real time shared cloud capabilities.
"Our strategy is to focus on the hyperscale providers - AWS, Azure, and Google. Over the last year we saw that a lot of developers need to learn how to do their job in the cloud and we see this DevOps movement that we are catering to with our content," stated Alessandro Fasan, Head of Global Sales at Cloud Academy, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
