WISeKey Semiconductors Gets Renewal Compliance With the International ISO 27001 Certification for Information Security
WISeKey International Holding Ltd. (“WISeKey”), a leading global cybersecurity and IoT company, announced that it has renewed successfully two important security accreditations: (1) the annual independent audit which grants the reputed WebTrust accreditation, necessary to deliver reliable trust services. WISeKey started these accreditations back in 2007; and (2) compliance with the international ISO 27001 certification for information security. The ISO 27001 standard has rigorous requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining and continually improving a company’s Information Security Management System (ISMS).
WISeKey provides an end-to-end scalable security framework to be integrated into IoT platforms. Based on PKI Technology, it will protect the device and its data at rest or in transit. WISeKey delivers cryptographic root keys and solutions to use and manage digital certificates, and their associated secure assets, protecting otherwise vulnerable IoT devices in the field. The security accreditation of such products and services is a must to ensure its trustworthiness.

For a CA to meet the strict requirements of these WebTrust programs, it must prove it has the highest commitment to the integrity of its own operations and the security and reliability of the certificates it offers. Successfully passing this entire collection of audits required a thorough evaluation of WISeKey’s practices, policies, and Public Key Infrastructure (PKI). The Webtrust accreditation of the WISeKey/OISTE Root Certification Authorities is key when connecting to secure websites and authenticating, digitally signing, or encrypting electronic transactions, email, or documents. Certificates issued under a Webtrust root are trusted by web browsers, operating systems, and applications, allowing a seamless and much more secure user experience. By meeting not only the Baseline Requirements but the Extended Validation and Extended Validation Code Signing audit criteria, WISeKey continues to demonstrate its adherence to the most rigorous security controls and best practices in the digital certificate industry.
WISeKey also renewed the certification of its Information Security Management System, under the ISO 27001 standard. This accreditation confirms WISeKey’s position as a trustworthy security technology supplier, specially oriented to the new needs of the Internet of Things.
These certifications will allow WISeKey to proceed with the vertical integration of WISeKey’s unique Root of Trust and Identity technology with VaultIC’s hardware & software, system certification, provisioning, and up to management services, creating the first-ever comprehensive trusted end-to-end cybersecurity platform for people and objects (IoT) and give WISeKey the unique ability to deliver the most secure platform to its customers.
As we move forward, the Internet of Things will quickly become the Internet of Everything (IoE), with more devices and objects connected and able to collect and transmit data over the internet. WISeKey’s Vertical Platform potential for monetizing services, blockchain, AI, and the data produced by these connected devices continues to grow. The total number of IoT connections is expected up to $27 billion in 2025, all of them requiring the type of security chips and software offered by WISeKey. Global spending on IoT/IoE technology-based services is now expected to reach $3 trillion by 2025.
Carlos Moreira, Chairman & CEO of WISeKey, commented, “We are very proud of being able to keep demonstrating again the robustness of our security portfolio, thanks to the renewal of these important accreditations. In particular, WebTrust compliance is our best argument to endorse WISeKey’s offering for PKI and Trust Services”. Bernard Vian, General Manager of WISeKey Semiconductor commented, “The ISO certification of our security practice ensures our customers that every process involved in the design and manufacturing of our products is executed under the most rigorous secure and reliable control.”
