WISeKey has 16 years of innovation and experience, WISEKEY presides over physical infrastructures, mobile networks and the Web to ensure secure communications, exclusive relationships, protected identities and authenticated transactions for bothe people and objects (IoT). In 2015 received a IoT patent in USA. WISeKey's patented technology is already proven in Switzerland with more than three years' experience in the luxury industry, the digital brand protection solution "WISeAuthentic" being implemented by several prestigious watch makers. With the latest evolutions this technology also applies to product and object segments as diverse as connected watches (like the WIS.WATCH launched by WISeKey this year at Davos www.wis.watch) smartphones, locks, smart meters, cars, alarm systems, identification of robotics, semiconductors, industrial sensors and household appliances. The near future will see all of these objects securely connected to the internet, enabling intercommunication and autonomous machine-to-machine M2M data transfer.

This patented technology opens up tremendous possibilities and industry leadership for WISeKey in terms of certifying, connecting, and insuring objects and storing the ensuing data in a secure, trusted cloud environment. We are now on the threshold of a fourth phase in the evolution of the Internet, what is called the Embedded Internet, a network space where billions of intelligent embedded devices will be connect.

Many countries are already working on what we call Industry 4 which is the next stage of industrial manufacturing and a paradigm shift toward smart factories which could be the advent of a fourth industrial revolution. So are we in fact on the verge of a fourth revolution with $14.4 Trillion of Value at Stake for Companies and Industries.
