WISeKey and FOSSA Systems Present WISeSat at the International Cybersecurity Forum (FIC) to Provide Secure, Global IoT Satellite Connectivity
WISeSat will offer secured and profitable IoT connectivity for any sector (agrotech, energy, logistics, IIoT, climate change monitoring, etc.) all over the planet
Geneva, Switzerland – September 9, 2021: WISeKey International Holding Ltd (“WISeKey “) (SIX: WIHN, NASDAQ: WKEY), a leading global cybersecurity, AI, blockchain and IoT company, and FOSSA Systems, a leading Spanish aerospace company focused on the development of picosatellites for IoT communications, presented at FIC 2021 in Lille, France, WISeSat, a PocketQube satellite that allows IoT connectivity, encrypted and dedicated with the secure VaultIC® module from WISeKey.
WISeSat is the first cost-effective and secure IoT connectivity solution anywhere on Earth using low power pico-satellites and sensors. Its aim is to meet the needs of any large-scale IoT deployment in agrotech, energy, logistics and more.
WISeSat collects and sends data from terrestrial sensors, increasing knowledge of asset condition and providing essential information to improve processes and optimize production. These interactions between sensors, gateways, ground stations and satellites require Trust. WISeSat, using VaultIC®, a comprehensive cryptographic toolkit that makes it easy to integrate digital security into any satellite device, delivers that confidence. It guarantees all certificate-based authentication (PKI), authorization, encryption and integrity requirements.
The WISeSat constellation will be put into orbit this Q4 2021 / Q1 2022, with the deployment of 2 WISeSats on a SpaceX Falcon 9 vehicle. The objective is to offer this service in a SaaS model allowing both remote and redundant IoT communications. for businesses looking to securely connect their assets via satellite communication, covering large unserved geographies such as maritime, desert, mountain, etc., at affordable prices. .
