    About WISeKey

    From mainstream threats, such as viruses and spyware, to phishing and now
pharming, secure communications and the protection of identity are on
everyone's mind. In order to address these concerns, WISeKey set out to
provide a reliable way of establishing a universal, secure identify system by
developing a high security, low cost and easy-to-use solution called
CertifyID. This solution enables and is built on advanced applications within
the Microsoft Windows Server. These applications enable relatively low tech
environments and entities to enjoy the same rock-solid security that would
otherwise be available only through complex, expensive and sophisticated
Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) technology.
