SEALSQ, WISeKey and The Hashgraph Association Join Forces to Bring Secure IoT and DePIN solutions to Saudi Arabia

Geneva, Switzerland / Riyadh, Saudi Arabia - June 5, 2024 – SEALSQ Corp ("SEALSQ" or "Company") (NASDAQ: LAES), a company that focuses on developing and selling Semiconductors, PKI and Post-Quantum technology hardware and software products, and its parent company, WISeKey, SIX: WIHN; Nasdaq: WKEY), a global leader in cybersecurity, digital identity, and Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, announced their partnership with The Hashgraph Association, a Swiss-based association and leader in digital innovation and DLT solutions through the Hedera network, to spearhead the implementation of Internet of Things and DePin (Decentralized Physical Infrastructure network) solutions in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in line with Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030. Vision 2030 aims to establish a sophisticated digital infrastructure for the kingdom and enhance economic competitiveness.

The Hashgraph Association, who recently announced the launching of a $250 million Deep Tech Studio with the Saudi Ministry of Investment, aimed at developing technological solutions, including blockchain and artificial intelligence, for local businesses in Saudi Arabia, will work closely with WISeKey and its partners in Saudi Arabia (E.A. Juffali & Brothers Group) to offer a robust decentralized ledger technology that will enhance the security and efficiencies of IoT, Blockchain, and DePIN applications and solutions across Saudi Arabia and MENA region.

WISeKey, has been present in KSA since 2020 through its joint venture WISeKey Arabia, with Saudi Advanced Technologies Company Ltd (SAT), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Juffali Group.

Kamal Youssefi, President of The Hashgraph Association, added, “As part of our mission to accelerate the adoption of emerging technologies which include DLT technology such as Hedera globally and in the MENA region, we are pleased to support the growth of DePIN solutions which offer a secure, transparent, cutting-edge digital infrastructure needed for future of digital economies in the region.”

Carlos Moreira, CEO and Chairman of SEALSQ stated, “We are pleased to be working with two major industry leaders in Saudi Arabia to develop secure IoT, and DePIN solutions for retail, financial, smart cities, healthcare, industrial, transportation and other sectors. We are now able to offer a full 360-degree solution that includes cybersecurity, Blockchain, IoT infrastructure needed for Saudi Vision 2030 digitization aims as well as those of the MENA region in general.”

The Kingdom’s IoT and M2M Communication market, currently encompassing 65% of the cybersecurity and IoT market of the Gulf region, was estimated to reach $16 billion in 2019, up from approximately $4.9 billion in 2014, and is expected to continue its rapid growth over the next decade, supported by Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030 economic reform plan.

DePIN, or Decentralized Physical Infrastructure Networks, refers to the integration of decentralized technologies, such as blockchain and IoT, to create a more secure, transparent, and efficient infrastructure network. By leveraging Hedera’s decentralized ledger technology, the cooperation will enhance the security and reliability of physical infrastructure networks, making them more resilient to cyber threats and more efficient in their operations.

SEALSQ, a subsidiary of WISeKey, and a leader in semiconductors, PKI, and Post-Quantum technology had previously announced a significant initiative to establish an Open Semiconductors Assembly and Test (OSAT) Center in Saudi Arabia.  OSAT is designed to offer a comprehensive array of testing services, including wafer and final tests, as well as assembly services for various semiconductor packages such as QFN, BGA, WLCSP, and others. This initiative is a key component of a larger strategy aimed at developing Semiconductor Personalization Centers through Public-Private Partnerships (PPP).  

SEALSQ is currently in active discussions to launch three major projects across Europe, the Middle East, and the Far East. These OSAT centers will employ RISC-V technology for chip design, focusing on local manufacturing to meet the highest standards of security and certification from authoritative bodies like Common Criteria and NIST.

SEALSQ focuses on selling integrated solutions based on Semiconductors, PKI and Provisioning services, while developing Post-Quantum technology hardware and software products. Our solutions can be used in a variety of applications, from Multi-Factor Authentication tokens, Smart Energy, Smart Home Appliances, and IT Network Infrastructure, to Automotive, Industrial Automation and Control Systems.
Post-Quantum Cryptography (PQC) refers to cryptographic methods that are secure against an attack by a quantum computer. As quantum computers become more powerful, they may be able to break many of the cryptographic methods that are currently used to protect sensitive information, such as RSA and Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC). PQC aims to develop new cryptographic methods that are secure against quantum attacks.
