Press Release : WISeKey's Zero Trust Solution Helps WISeID.com Users Prevent Pegasus Malware that Infects iPhones and Androids Devices

WISeKey's Zero Trust Solution Helps WISeID.com Users Prevent Pegasus Malware that Infects iPhones and Androids Devices

Zero Trust is a cybersecurity concept centered on the belief that organizations should not automatically trust anything inside or outside its security perimeters and instead must digitally verify anything and everything trying to connect to its systems before granting access.

Pegasus malware infects iPhones and Android devices and allows hackers to extract messages, photos and emails, record calls and secretly activate microphones.

To prevent installing Pegasus, only open links from known and trusted contacts and sources when using your device. Make sure your device is updated with any relevant patches and upgrades. If you use Android, don't rely on notifications for new versions of the operating system. Download wiseid.com and use digital certificates to encrypt your communications and secure your email. It's free!

Geneva, Switzerland -- July 22, 2022: WISeKey International Holding Ltd. ("WISeKey") (SIX: WIHN, NASDAQ: WKEY), a leading global cybersecurity AI and IoT company, today announced that its WISeID platform, through WISeID Cloud and CloudSign features, provides a Zero Trust Approach as a new way to secure mobile communications and cloud interactions and mitigate online security risks associated with remote teleworking and increasing use of mobile phones as authentication and payment devices. In 2020, WISeKey intensified its investments in Zero Trust developments to create advanced solutions to provide remote users/workforce with an easy-to-use and end-to-end Zero Trust approach.

As COVID-19 pandemic continues to effect the global economy, many companies and organizations have adapted to the new reality where professional interactions with customers and among employees are conducted electronically. These organizations are following Zero Trust networking principles allowing them to address the security requirements driven by the rapid digital transformation and expansion of their remote workforce. Companies are now required to act quickly in order to mitigate the cybersecurity risks created by the sudden shift to remote work caused by the pandemic.

Zero Trust is a cybersecurity concept centered on the belief that organizations should not automatically trust anything inside or outside its security perimeters and instead must digitally verify anything and everything trying to connect to its systems before granting access.

Electronic signatures are being perceived finally as a need to ensure that all electronic documents being managed remotely, have the same legal validity as paper documents, regardless if these documents represent external transactions such as contracts or invoices, or internal transactions such as expense reports or vacation requests.

Also, companies are now confronting the needs to use cloud services, in such a way that applications and documents previously accessed and managed using internal networks, now need to be accessed remotely without compromising the security of the data, nor the privacy of the users. For this, companies are carefully evaluating their cloud strategy and seeking to cooperate with cloud service providers that can ensure high security and data sovereignty.

WISeKey is now proposing a new set of Zero Trust into its WISeID platform, providing new ways to secure interactions. The strategy WISeID follows under the Zero Trust platform it is based on the principle of "we trust no one and will only provide access after we know who you."

"These new work behaviors induced from the global lockdown situation are generating new challenges to the companies' IT organizations. The big question is how to bring corporate data security to the employees' homes. While employees are slowly returning to their offices as countries begin to ease COVID-19-induced lockdowns and lift stay-at-home orders, uncertainty related to the pandemic still lingers. As consequence, many organizations are choosing to maintain semi-remote, virtual workplaces over the next 12 to 18 months and in some cases permanently thus becoming digital by default," indicated Carlos Moreira, Founder and CEO of WISeKey.

WISeID is based on the WISeKey/OISTE Root of Trust and integrates innovative technologies to distribute the identity attributes and build federated ecosystems. The WISeID web services and Mobile Applications are available for download and use. Several offers, such as digital certificates to secure the email or the strong authentication capabilities are offered free of charge, while others require a business subscription, in order to get full access to validated identities and document signature capabilities.

For decades, WISeKey has been one of the very few recognized providers of hardware and software first-in-class digital security solutions for cybercrime protection, people and object identification and authentication. The company has been designing secure chips which are massively used in highly sensitive applications such as banking, national ID or PayTV.
