WISeKey and CenturyLink to explore analytics cybersecurity solutions for IoT providers

WISeKey and CenturyLink, Inc. announced the signing, at the World Economic Forum in Davos, of a collaboration agreement to explore a future relationship to jointly offer a managed digital identity solution for Internet of Things (IoT) providers.

Through this collaboration agreement, WISeKey and CenturyLink plan to work toward a relationship where they may collaborate on joint solutions that enable global corporations to secure their IoT infrastructure and ensure the privacy of their data. WISeKey would like to leverage CenturyLink’s data center presence in the United States to establish a Root of Trust (RoT), which provides the foundation behind trusted computing and allows IoT device verification at the hardware level, in order to support the needs of U.S.-based corporations and government establishments.

Carlos Moreira, founder and CEO of WISeKey, noted: “This collaboration agreement with CenturyLink will enable us to continue discussions about ways to work together to rapidly expand our cybersecurity services for IoT providers in the North American market.”

“As the number of connected devices continues to expand, collecting and exchanging huge amounts of data along the way, the need for strong Internet of Things security services becomes increasingly important for businesses and consumers,” said Gary Gauba, president, of CenturyLink Cognilytics. “This collaboration agreement with WISeKey is a first step toward a relationship that we hope will instill confidence in companies that manage and secure connected devices, and we look forward to collaborating to jointly serve this growing market.”
