"WISeKey has long been recognized as a leader in providing luxury and other good makers with reliable means to protect their brands against counterfeiting," said Carlos Moreira, Founder and CEO of WISeKey. "With the additional support of Apple iPhones by our chips and WISeAuthentic platform, we have the opportunity to provide our clients with a powerful way to directly reach each of their consumers. This opens up tremendous new business opportunities for WISeKey."This is all made possible by WISeKey's patent-pending CapSeal smart tags which are fully compatible with NDEF standard. These tags are based on the company's VaultIC154 NFC secure element. When placed on a bottle of spirit or a bottle of lubricant oil, for instance, and tapped by an NFC phone, the chip is able to securely authenticate and track the bottle like an ePassport does. It offers the same certified security level. It also allows the brand to broadcast personalized messages to the phone-holder detecting whether the bottle has been open or not. In addition to luxury goods, this technology can be installed in and used by any gadget, accessory or wearable allowing them to process contactless payments, thanks to WISeKey's partnership with MasterCard ( https://newsroom.mastercard.com/press-releases/mastercard-and-wisekey-to-bring-payments-to-luxury-brand-watches-and-wearables/). WISeKey's patented security software is used by an extensive list of premium watch manufacturers, including Bulgari.
