WISeKey and Qwant launch a Joint Venture WISeQwant providing Next Generation Encrypted Search

Geneva, Paris 20th April 2013 – Following on the partnership announced last year WISeKey and Qwant has launched a Joint Venture with the name associating WISekey’s digital identity management and encryption with Qwant Search. WISeQwant defines a new paradigm for personal data and content protection combined with encrypted search preventing all analytics services, including main search company analytics, to detect the search query of visitors coming if they are logged into WISeQwant with their digital identity and have the WISeQwant SSL enabled in their account. Users will also be able to search on encrypted content on secure clouds allowing media and news companies to protect unauthorized access to their media from search companies indexing their content.

The JV will release the WISeQwant mobile application offering a set of tools to provide secure and authenticated digital identification based social mobile search. WISeQwant fan applications will use digital identities and social search to distribute official branded content to a certified community of fans who choose to receive targeted marketing. The first deployment of this new technology will be done with the FC Barcelona Connect app developed by WISekey and using this WISeQwant integrated technology .

Jean-Manuel Rozan, President of QWANT SAS said "Qwant is delighted to launch this JV with WISeKey in order to deliver enhanced information and search capabilities in a secure environment to millions of fans around the world and protect and allow content providers to monetize their fans base"

Carlos Moreira, Founder and CEO of WISeKey SA said "I am delighted to launch this new Joint Venture WISeQwant, integrating powerful Search and Security technologies to provide and efficient search on encrypted data which implements a keyword list in a hash table for each encrypted media content so searches can be performed without leaking any information becoming the ultimate protection for media companies worldwide trying to fight search engines.”
