WISeKey: WISeKey Presents a positive technology outlook at the FT CyberSecurity Summit in London 23 September

Geneva, London, New York
-22 September 2015 -WISeKey, a leading Cybersecurity company announced today,
at theFT CyberSecurity Summit in London, new technologies and processes that
increase cybersecurity. It is now evident that individuals' requirements for
cybersecurity are getting higher all the time and current offerings by
cybersecurity companies are mainly focussed on enterprise cybersecurity and
not personal cybersecurity. Said Carlos Moreira Founder and CEO of WISEKEY
and soaker at the event.

WISeKey is leading the process to move the gravity center from 'back end
application-centric' to 'front end personal-centric' models where individuals
will retake control and increase their security of their personal data. Gone
are the days of huge centralized clouds and ID metasystems with no respect
for personal data. The trend WISeKey is launching is Personal CyberSecurity,
a technology which combines digital identity management for people and
objects/things with blockchain technology. Combining digital identity with
blockchains create small encrypted files that only the user can manipulate.

Moreira during the panel explain how to create a WISeKey blockchain
certificate, the user must scan an identity document and sign it with their
digital ID. Then the WISeID mobile app generates a private and public key to
certify the transaction which is then encrypted, hashed and sent to the
blockchain distributed ledger updating all the nodes running bitcoin
software. The trend is evident as nine of the world's biggest financial
institutions have partnered to develop distributed ledger technologies-the
same technologies that underpinBitcoin's blockchain.

Developing digital identity based systems and personal cloud computing will
help secure and reduce the cost of cloud technology and protection from
hackings. The WISeID Personal Cloud app is a set of online toolsdesigned to
empower the user by providing secure, authenticated, private digital
identification and personal data storage in a Secure Vault on the Cloud.
WISeID provides encrypted personal cloud storage in WISekey Datacenters in
the USA and Switzerland and enables users to protect and sync their data and
passwords across their personal mobile devices. The WISeID Personal Cloud app
is free but users will be requested to pay for incremental Personal Cloud
storage usage.

The WiseID cybersecurity architecture also applies to IoT,as it's estimated
that the global wearables' market will grow at an annual rate of 35% over the
next five years. WISeKey's trusted IoT Technology http://goo.gl/ozgOQm
enables these wearable devices to connect safely and make secure payments and
other transactions. Trust and Privacy are serious concernsfor any large scale
IoT deployment. Even when users and corporations take all precautions to
secure their information, due to conditions that are beyond their control,
strong authentication and encryption is required to protect from hackers.
Current sophisticated hackers can now craft attacks with unprecedented
sophistication and correlate information not just from traditional sources
but also from different private sources, such as mobile phones, smart cars,
smart home automation systems, intelligent cities etc. as we have already 25
billion devices connected and 75 billion are slated to connect by 2020.More
than 70 percent of current IoT devices contain serious vulnerabilities.

WISeKey was selected as a Global Growth Company ('GGC') Partner by the World
Economic Forum at its 2015 Annual Meeting of the New Champions in Dalian.
WISeKey was originally nominated as one of the founding members of the GGC
community back in 2007 with already eight years of deep engagement with the
Forum as a GGC Partner, which includes being a partner of the Partnering
