  • 4. Message from Carlos C. Moreira,Founder, CEO and Chairman, WISeKeyI am so pleased that WISeKey continues its evolution and is currently well positioned to become a majorplayer in the “Social Media and Mobility Revolution.” Social media is a powerful tool for business and rec-reation, but security is at the front of everyone’s mind. At WISeKey, we have an impeccable reputation fortaking personal data and social profile safety seriously; we offer powerful tools to protect and serve ourcustomers, making WISeKey a leading brand in this ecosystem.In 2008 we carefully considered how the world was shifting and where new opportunities would arise.While WISeKey today is fundamentally a different company, our present position is a steady progressionof the mindset, ambitions, and values that have guided WISeKey since its inception, 11 years ago. In 2011,WISeKey was recognized by the World Economic Forum as one of the top 25 Global Growth Companies.As such, 2010-11 marks a fitting conclusion to our first decade as a corporation, and a promising start toour second.Two years ago, we decided to introduce our digital identity road map that led to WISeKey’s positioning asan essential player on the emerging market of securing social media mobility. To my knowledge, no othercompany in our industry has gone through this transformation. The PKI sector has disappeared from Eu-rope; all PKI companies that started in 2000 either have been acquired or are gone. But we felt WISeKeyshould take a long-term view and we were confident about the future, because of the transformational stepswe were taking to reposition the company in this complex environment and sector.In the company overview that follows, we explain why the long-term thinking and management that WISeKeyhas practiced over the past decade have positioned the company strategically and commercially in an ad-vantageous place to approach the next five years and beyond. Let me close simply by expressing my prideand recognition of the WISeKey team for bringing us to this point. I trust that you share our excitementabout the future of an enterprise whose unique past is propelling us into an enormously promising future.Carlos MoreiraChairman and CEO© 2011 WISeKey S.A. 3

  • 6. WISeKey Company OverviewWISeKey is a privately-owned company headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland with anumber of subsidiaries globally. As a leader in digital identification and authenticationtechnologies, the company mission is to transform the Internet into a reliable and fairtool for conducting secure, electronic transactions .WISeKey secures the digital lives of people by providing specialized and cutting-edge security technologiesfor personal data protection, effective identification and authentication of people and objects over physi-cal infrastructures, mobile networks, and the Internet, to ensure secure communications, interactions, andtransactions, without compromising trust and privacy.With more than a decade of leadership in information security and identity management, WISeKey’s solu-tions aim to: • Protect your organization with its Online Trust Solutions • Protect your products with its Digital Brand Protection • Protect yourself with its Mobile Security & Digital IdentitiesSupporting Secure GrowthSince its foundation in 1999, WISeKey has recognized the need to secure the web just as private networkswere protected before the Internet was part of everyday life and business. When the Web was inventedfrom the city of WISeKey’s global headquarters – at the laboratories of CERN in Geneva, Switzerland – itwas designed to support collaboration. Thus, security was not an objective. Security has become an increasing concern as the “…One of the risks of 2011 is actually the Web grew to be a vehicle, not just for the trans- Internet… An infrastructure which was not mission of information, but also for the collection designed to carry the burden it is carrying of data. In the second half of the last decade, a today… Something [intended to allow] us to major shift took place in which the Internet went transmit data… efficiently and quickly, but from being a “network of machines” to a “network security was not at all a thought at that time.” of people.” For better or for worse, information ex- ists and persists in cyberspace. WISeKey believes Carlos Moreira at the Global Competitiveness that processes and behavior need to catch up to Forum, January 24, 2011 the digital ecosystem, to create a safe, trusted en- vironment for the people, products, and organiza- tions that operate in it.WISeKey has spent more than a decade establishing a sound platform and technical infrastructure uponwhich the Company will continue to offer solutions to ensure that information is properly protected, transmit-ted safely, and that objects and identity are digitally authenticated.© 2011 WISeKey S.A. 5
  • 7. Increased Security ThreatsPublic attention has been focused on cyber security, throughout 2010 and 2011, as a growing list of high-profile institutions confirmed the vulnerability of security practices through the revelation of network breach-es. A global deficiency of appropriate safety measures exits. Security experts and companies, includingWISeKey, are concerned about the threat to critical assets in financial institutions and to the PersonallyIdentifiable Information (PII) of individuals. WISeKey has been providing digital security, identity and access management, and encryption solutions to governments and enterprises world- wide for more than a decade. Many institutions, large and small, have weak security procedures. Even the most secure infrastructures can prove vulnerable to human error, such as an employee mistakenly revealing a password to a user whose identity was not properly authenticated. Consumers have received a stark education in the concept of identity theft, watching prominent “…[Hackers] have been proving with consumer brands fail to protect the personal data alarming regularity that the data we’ve with which they have been trusted. The gap be- entrusted to corporations and institutions tween a person and their digital identity leaves isn’t as safe as we’d like.” 1 millions vulnerable to dangers of identity theft and fraud. “There isn’t anything built into the architec- ture of the Web that can verify who you are,” says Carlos Moreira, WISeKey Founder and CEO.High-Profile Breaches of 2010 – 2011Since hackers targeted MasterCard in 2010, headlines have been peppered with announcements ofbreaches from leading consumer companies such as Sony and Google; technology specialists, such asthe security authority RSA, and a related attack at defense contractor Lockheed Martin Corp.It is the duty of every institution and company to take responsibility for the data they collect and transmit,particularly as the technology to secure data exists if deployed and maintained properly. WISeKey hasdeveloped solutions based on best-practices that the organization has gained from experience workingwith Swiss banks, where a person’s identity needs to be validated, while also protecting their anonymityand privacy.WISeKey has successfully deployed secured platforms that can validate identities while guaranteeing in-dividual privacy. Networks are about connecting people, and the experience should be authentic and real,enhancing the personal experience while also protecting people.1 Saporito, Bill. “Hack Attack.” Time.

  • 16. Microsoft Sell-Through ModelDespite the economic downturn and impact on some national government spending, the Public Sectormarket continues to see double-digit growth in Information Technology (IT) in many parts of the world. In-dustry powerhouse Microsoft gained almost USD 1 billion in revenue in the Public Sector market this lastfiscal year. Highly visible cyber-attacks impacting government institutions and other organizations continueto drive focus onto security concerns by their customers.Many networks continue to use the simple User-named passwords to access their networks even thoughmost security experts agree that this form of protection has too much vulnerability. The lack of two-factor orbetter authentication, digital signing of emails, and documents, and encryption of sensitive communicationsleaves these customers exposed to data exfiltration and service interruptions, as well as viruses, worms,botnets and other maladies. WISeKey security technologies provide solutions to improve cyber securityacross government agencies, defense, justice, healthcare and other Public Sector markets. As a resultof this opportunity, WISeKey launched a new focus on Public Sector and is building a team for sales andmarketing in FY 2012.Public Sector is generally categorized into four main markets: Government, Health, Education and PublicSafety and National Security (PS&NS). The latter includes customers such as military, intelligence, home-land security, justice, and police/fire organizations. As part of WISeKey’s strategy to place a big bet onPublic Sector in FY12, the company hired the Microsoft GM responsible for the USD 1.5 billion PS&NSbusiness in April 2011 to lead this new effort as part of the OTS business unit. At the core, Government andPS&NS operations are increasingly wedded to Information Technology to accomplish their work and, asa result, are increasingly vulnerable to the same, if not more, attempts by hackers, nation states, and oth-ers to steal, alter, or destroy their information and intercept their communications. WISeKey OTS securitysolutions are needed across this entire market, based on the continuous deployment of new InformationTechnologies and the simultaneous and increasing cyber threat to these very systems.The WISeKey Public Sector strategy is focused on a “Sell-Through Partners” sales channel to achieve rap-id growth. Toward this end, WISeKey is focused initially on strategic engagement with Microsoft to sell theWISeKey value proposition to the 2000+ Microsoft Public Sector sales force. Additionally, where WISeKeyhas sold specific solutions for Public Sector problems, such as E-Justice support to the International Crimi-nal Court, Citizen Services Platform to Biscay TIK, or E-Voting solutions to Geneva, the company looks toreplicate these solutions with Microsoft partner companies who focus on these individual markets.OTS CustomersWISeKey OTS maintained sales for 20 customers around the world and added 13 new customers duringthe reporting period.Retained Customers: International Criminal Court, IHTM, IKEA, NAVIXIA, Pictet et Cie, Zytrust, IATA, PeruSecure Net, TCS, National Bank of Kuwait, DFI Services SA, Secure Data Security Pty, Microsoft Jordan,DITC Seychelles, Total Oil Trading, ZEK, Banque Gonet, JTI, and Banque Depôt de Gestion.New Customers: Novartis, Realisator, CERN, Balzane Services, Origen en Comunicación, Dynamic Secu-rity Est, Erdinada, Anthos Amsterdam, Performance System Software, Faisal Private Bank, Multi ServiceSA, Afschrift Lawyers, and Ademus.© 2011 WISeKey S.A. 15
  • 17. Digital Brand ManagementWISeKey’s Digital Brand Management technolo-gies provide authentication and real-time trace-ability of products throughout their life cycle.WISeAuthentic is the anti-counterfeiting andsales monitoring system that revolutionized thewatch industry when it launched with Hublot in2009, equipping 450 global boutiques and theentire Hublot collection with the solution. Just asWISeKey was closing its fiscal period in June2011, Dior Watches launched its new D8 modelwith WISeAuthentic. The digital solution has beendeployed in more than 900 boutiques around theworld.The Digital Brand Management team continues tolearn from its customers and address their needs.Strong partnerships and a constant feedback loophave allowed the solution to evolve into a com-plete sales monitoring and direct marketing tooland a source of critical business intelligence.The industry of luxury watches has taken notice of the solution, and WISeAuthentic is coming to be seenas a benchmark solution to accompany fine timepieces, in both large groups and exclusive manufacturers.WISeAuthentic has been endorsed by the President of the “Fédération Horlogère Suisse” as a best prac-tice application for an anti-counterfeiting global strategy.The Digital Brand Management team is currently having discussions with several luxury companies regard-ing the deployment of WISeAuthentic for their brands.16 © 2011 WISeKey S.A.
  • 18. WISeAuthentic – Authentication of ObjectsWISeAuthentic is based on proven public key infrastructure (PKI) technology – used in the banking indus-try and national defense agencies for over 20 years – that creates an electronic certificate containing theproduct’s identity code. The electronic identity is stored securely on a Smartcard. Retailers and customersuse the Smartcard to authenticate the product instantly. The solution is impossible to replicate and comesat a fraction of the cost of sales lost due to counterfeits.WISeAuthentic offers unmatched value, assuring the end-customer of the authenticity of their purchaseand providing businesses with product sales monitoring and life cycle information.A bespoke solution that can be tailored to support individual business needs, WISeAuthentic provides awealth of benefits to enhance any brand:The Anti-Counterfeiting SolutionThe WISeAuthentic system is particularly well suited to support the needs of luxury goods manufacturerswho are constantly fighting against forgeries. WISeAuthentic offers a digital certificate of authenticity forluxury or other valuable items, which acts as a passport to identify the product, to protect them againstcounterfeiting. It is based on the principle of the traditional paper-based certificate, but instead of usinga forgeable piece of paper, a non-duplicable digital certificate is stored on a cryptographic smart chipembedded into a branded Smartcard. This allows manufacturers or resellers of luxury goods to prove theauthenticity of the items to their customers, and of course, for the customers to prove it to authorities andthird parties, even over the Internet.© 2011 WISeKey S.A. 17
  • 19. Online Sales MonitoringWith WISeAuthentic, when an item is sold, its warranty is activated online using the shop’s official resellerSmartCard and reader. The manufacturer automatically receives online information stating which shopsold an item and when. The manufacturer can therefore ensure they receive accurate sales informationthat can then be used for analyzing the impact of marketing activities and estimating the stock of resellers.WISeAuthentic easily integrates with existing business intelligence systems for deeper sales analysis. Thisprovides a valuable tool for greater visibility and control of gray markets.Forging a lifelong bond with your consumerWISeAuthentic provides the manufacturer with a direct link to the end consumer through an online registra-tion system. Owners of a WISeAuthentic-certified item may access an owner’s VIP club online, allowingthe vendor to provide them with innovative value-added services using direct marketing facilities. Accessis reserved for owners of certified objects, as the Smartcard is used to log in to this optional service. Hublot Case Study WISeKey installed the WISeAuthentic solution in the manufacturing and after-sales departments of Hublot beginning in 2009 and the platform continues to be a welcomed enrichment to the reseller network in the over 450 boutiques around the world. Hublot’s management is very pleased with the WISeAuthen- tic deployment, since it also offers sales monitoring in real-time and gives the opportunity to carry out direct marketing activities, especially through the de- velopment of the exclusive Hublotista Internet com- munity. In October 2010, Hublot launched Hublotista, a pro- tected, private club reserved exclusively for Hublot watch owners using WISeAuthentic. “Hublotista. com” offers an extensive range of services and privi-leged access to the brand. Linked to the watch’s international warranty system activated when it is pur-chased, Hublotista.com guarantees a customer’s anonymity, as they are not required to provide any identi-fication to participate in discussions.

There are more than 40 million fake Swiss watches made each year compared to 26 million genuinewatches, and the damage to the Swiss watch industry on a global basis is estimated at between CHF 800million and CHF 1 billion.Now, although the luxury industry remains Digital Brand Management’s primary objective, it is also target-ing new high growth markets with scalable digital solutions for several luxury and non-luxury clients. Manyindustries are affected by this problem.The drug industry, for instance, is keen on finding an effectual anti-counterfeiting solution. The EuropeanAlliance for Access to Safe Medicines suggests that over 60 per cent of prescription medicines sold overthe Internet are fake, and the World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that 10 to 30 per cent of themedicines on sale in the developing world could be fake. The proportion is probably higher in some partsof Africa, Asia and Latin America. Action needs to be taken to address this problem, and WISeAuthentic isoffering solutions.2 “Real/Fake: You Have the Choice!” Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie. http://www.hautehorlogerie.org/en/fondation/fight-against-counterfeiting/anti-counterfeiting-campaigns/2011-you-have-choice/realfake-you-have-choice/3 “Havocscope Black Market Rankings.” Havocscope black markets online database of black market activities. http://www.havoc-scope.com/products/ranking/© 2011 WISeKey S.A. 19

Writingabout the summit for the Financial Times, HaigSimonian references WISeKey’s contribution tothe battle against counterfeiting by use of technol-ogy that creates a digital system of identification to 4distinguish fakes from originals.” WISeKey CEOCarlos Moreira also participated in a discussion onthe issue as part of the panel “On the Counterfeit-ing Battlefield.”Mobile Security & Digital IdentitiesWISeID – Securing Personal IdentityWISeID, part of WISeKey’s Mobile Security Suite, provides trusted digitalidentities for the individual. WISeKey’s WISeID provides a convenient en-crypted place to store usernames, passwords, PINs, credit cards, loyaltycards, notes and other information. The military-grade encryption used inthe application means that the owner is the only person who can access theinformation in WISeID, so data is safe even if the device is lost or stolen.WISeID offers secured storage to protect personally identifiable information(PII), which can be used to identify, contact, locate or trace a person, or evento commit identity theft. The personal data collected by WISeID always staysorganized under your control, to be shared only as you choose.In 2010, the application was first launched on Apple’s iOS platform for iPhones and iPod Touch. In 2011,WISeID debuted on the Android Market, and subsequently became available for BlackBerry customers.

  • 22. The Right to DisappearWISeKey is concerned about the proliferation of an individual’s PII because the very nature of this informa-tion allows a person to be tracked. WISeKey developed WISeID not only to provide strong identity man-agement, but also to offer secure storage to protect your sensitive information. The combination of a digitalidentity and encryption allows WISeID to help manage personal information, and to help control it.The question of personal information protection goes deep into the business models of many Internet-based companies who declare ownership of the data posted in their network, even if that data might be apersonal family photo that was being shared. Many of these companies also refuse to allow participants topermanently remove their personal data from the network. Therefore, if the family members decide theirphoto to be more personal, they may never have that option to change their mind and remove the photofrom the Internet.Advocates for allowing people to remove their profiles from any network platform refer to this as “the rightto disappear.” In January 2011, Carlos Moreira was interviewed for a feature in Swiss Style Magazine inwhich he discussed WISeKey’s strong position on consumer data protection. WISeKey believes individualsshould control their own PII.WISeID’s encryption technology may be the stron- “…how do we know what happens to ourgest protection the individual has to protect their personal data when we book and boardPII in cyberspace. When encrypted, the ques- a plane, open a bank account, make ation of who owns the information that exists and payment, make an IP call or share photospersists on the Internet will go away, because online? How is this data used and byownership clearly resides with whoever holds the whom? How do we permanently delete theencryption key.

Can we evenwill be able to choose which details you want to transfer our contacts and photos to anotherdistribute, where, and to whom; you remain the 6 service?”owner of your information.The next step will be to develop the “Delete” button that will allow participants on the web to actually removedetails about themselves that they no longer wish to be on the Internet where posts can live into perpetu-ity. “If your data is associated with your PII, and if your identity is encrypted, the data can be activated ordeactivated the moment your identity wishes and without any need for a decision from anybody else,” Mr.Moreira was quoted in the Swiss Style article.In April 2011, Mr. Moreira was featured on CNBC, speaking to Simon Hobbs about protecting personaldata. Mr. Moreira explained the fundamentals of WISeKey’s technology that could support “the right todisappear.” That was followed in May 2011 by an invitation to attend the e-G8 Forum in Paris, in order todiscuss “the right to disappear” initiative, as it has become widely recognized that WISeKey’s digital secu-rity and authentication expertise mandates that the Company have a role in establishing universal protocolsfor digital identity management.Carlos Moreira emphatically puts it, “The concept of WISeID is that a person has a natural right to beanonymous, and technology designers must take this right into consideration.”6 “The right to disappear.” Swiss Style Magazine.

  • 23. WISeID Social MediaWISeKey is partnering with media companies to build global network ecosystems in the intersection be-tween brands, ads, and digital IDs. Under the umbrella WISeID Social Media, WISeKey connects thestrong identification of WISeID with passionate fans who want more from prestigious brands, along witha safer online experience. WISeID Social Media allows brands to become part of how people interact onmobile devices. In 2011, WISeKey ushered in the first partnerships following this strategy. SwissStyle Magazine At the 2011 Annual Meeting of the WEF in Davos, WISeKey and SwissStyle launched the WISeID- SwissStyle Magazine iPad application, a revolu- tionary means of broadcasting content and more in electronic format. This iPad app can be used by high-scale events that wish to offer WISeID per- sonal data protection, to broadcast content, and make event-related applications available for par- ticipants.The iPad app was released in conjunction with the Swiss Style World Economic Forum Davos 2011 SpecialIssue. Conceived by WISeKey, this interface not only allows participants to access the content, includingaudiovisual and traditional advertising found within the printed version of the magazine, it also integratesWISeID core credentials management functionalities, and includes exclusive features such as a uniqueidentification interface as well as a cryptographic signature program that allows participants at the WEF tosend signed, authenticated emails. Spy Kids: All the Time in the World WISeKey collaborated with Dimension Films and Troublemaker Studios to develop a mobile app for the Spy Kids 4 motion picture, to be released on iTunes with the launch of the movie in August 2011. “Spy Kids: All the Time in the World” is the fourth installment of the action series by acclaimed filmmaker Robert Rodriguez. The film features unique interactivity through the use of aromascope cards to experience smells during the movie. The inventive film franchise was an obvious fit for WISeKey, as the company is always exploring ways to reach new audiences and striving to of- fer a compelling brand experience.FC Real MadridEarly in 2011, WISeKey negotiated an exclusive agreement with FC Real Madrid for the exclusive distri-bution of the club’s mobile content in China for the coming 2011/2012 season. Under the deal WISeKeyand our Chinese partners will be responsible for distributing and marketing Real Madrid’s mobile content,covering China and the extended network of Chinese Real Madrid fans.“WISeKey will help Real Madrid generate extra revenue by distributing official mobile content in China,creating a mobile community of Real Madrid fans who choose to receive Real Madrid’s exclusive mobilecontent using WISeKey’s world-leading eSecurity technologies” said Carlos Moreira, Founder and CEOWISeKey.22 © 2011 WISeKey S.A.

With no existingofficial distribution channels in China, WISeKey’s WISeID technology will serve as the main access point toReal Madrid from this community.Clinton Global InitiativeIn September 2010, WISeKey extended its 2007 commitment with the Clinton Global Initiative to bringMobile Banking to millions of people. WISeKey pledged to provide identity management and the necessarytransaction platform to enable a new approach of remittances and micro-credit initiatives. This platform willenable anyone with a mobile phone to carry out transactions, even if they don’t have a bank account.“It is estimated that only 1 billion people out of the world’s nearly five billion mobile device users have bankaccounts, but people need a way of sending money to peers,” said Carlos Moreira, CEO of WISeKey. “Inaddition to the ‘unbanked’, there are the ‘underbanked’—those who have inaccessible bank accounts, asbranches and ATMs are rare in many emerging economies.”Using the WISeID secure identity platform, WISeKey can offer financial institutions, mobile operators, e-commerce and catalog retailers to provide customers with universally trusted services through the mostcommon and secure channels. WISeKey, together with the OISTE Foundation, has committed “to re- duce the gap between the new Digital Identifi- cation Divide in less de- veloped countries and emerging economies by creating the infra- structure that will make a de-facto global digital identity community of 1 billion digital identity us- ers while providing eq- uitable and meaningful access to digital informa- tion technology,” includ- ing trusted services on the cloud.The design of WISeID is in accordance with the National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace,which urges development of a high-level framework, and eventually, an interoperable “environment” foridentification, authentication, and authorization during the course of online transactions. The White Househas termed this environment the Identity Ecosystem. “I am delighted that we can support the growth of theIdentity Ecosystem and reduce the new Digital Identification Divide through our involvement with the Clin-ton Initiative,” said Carlos Moreira.Throughout 2010 and 2011, WISeKey has continued to work towards achieving its commitment by 2015.© 2011 WISeKey S.A. 23
