WISEKEY International Holding Ltd a cyber-security IoT platform company, announced on Jan 25 a strategic partnership with Cendee Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary company of Censof Holdings Bhd to deploy WISeKey`s Cybersecurity Vertical Platform and Blockchain stack to address PKI, IoT and blockchain opportunities for a list of identified projects across Censof’s client ecosystem.
Cendee and WISeKey will establish a Centre of Excellence in Malaysia to support the creation of a tailored “Trusted Blockchain as a Service Platform.”
This initiative will help in facilitating and providing easily integrated enterprise blockchain solutions for financial institutions, corporates, regulators and governments. As a first milestone, WISeKey and Cendee have already deployed a local “WISeKey Malaysian Root of Trust (RoT),” a critical step for the establishment of the Blockchain Centre of Excellence in Malaysia.
This partnership will complement and expand Cendee’s capabilities to successfully address the requirements of a number of identified projects in various areas with select government entities in Malaysia.
In the last few months, WISeKey has announced the creation of Blockchain Centres of Excellence in the US, China, India, Africa, Latin America and it is now in Malaysia, a Southeast Asian country to host this powerful ecosystem.
To support this endeavour, WISeKey announced several strategic partnerships and is working with experts in industry, government, and academia to address the most relevant Blockchain developments with practical, standard-based solutions.
At the heart of this strategy is the OISTE-WISeKey Cryptographic Root of Trust which has been actively used since 1999 by over 2.6 billion desktops, browsers, mobile devices, SSL certificates and Internet of Things / Semiconductors devices.
The OISTE WISeKey Cryptographic Root of Trust is ubiquitous and universal, and a pioneer in the identification of objects.
“We are proud to collaborate with Censof, a market leader and a trusted partner in providing financial and business management solutions specifically geared to the needs of government agencies.
“This strategic agreement allows Censof and in particular Cendee to leverage their cyber-security and blockchain expertise by combining WISeKey's broad cyber-security portfolio and strengthen Censof’s offering among government and enterprise clients,” said Carlos Moreno, VP Corporate Alliances and Partnership of WISeKey.
“The potential benefits of blockchain will help drive efficiencies to our clients. This collaboration is another example of our continued commitment to introduce new financial innovations for the betterment of their business,” said Censof group managing director Ameer Shaik Mydin.
