The number of people now using their digital ids on mobile phones to conduct save transactions. Our digital identity encryption systems are becoming platforms people and organizations customize and use to manage their lives. They often do it in creative ways we hadn’t even imagined. It feels good to empower people to shape their own fortunes.” Governments, both federal and municipal, regularly hired WISeKey to help increase the safety and effectiveness of their internet services. Corporations in industries as varied as retail and high-speed sailboats praised WISeKey’s customized and original digital transaction systems for helping them stay a step ahead of counterfeiters of their products and data thieves. Furthermore, WISeKey stayed true to its public service spirit and continued to collaborate with a few non-profit organizations. At the 2009 Clinton Global Initiative, we announced plans for WISeKey to create digital identity solutions for mobile phones to help the world’s immigrants, both legal and illegal. Few companies can pull off these projects, for they require that WISeKey be skilled and trusted enough to play the role of honest broker, coordinator and service provider to a country’s often competing key stakeholders: government ministers, business operators, the news media, corruption watchdog groups and, last but far from least, consumers.
