Bulgari and WISeKey Partner to Create Secure Storage App

July 21, 2016         Written By Lynn Oldshue

As wearable devices increase in popularity, they face a growing number of hacks. Bulgari and WISeKey announced a partnership hoping to change that trend by teaming up to create the BVLGARI Vault, a mobile app that secures personal data, such as various codes, credit card information, documents and scanned signatures. The app also provides secure message sending.

As soon as information is uploaded to the app, it is encrypted instantly using “asymmetrical” levels of encryption, which is usually reserved for government agencies. Users can also archive and synchronize data using cloud storage. That data is later physically stored in a bunker under the Swiss Alps.

“At Bulgari we strive to be on the edge of understanding and anticipating luxury experiences. The 4th industrial revolution will inevitably modify our relationship with luxury. This is why offering to our exigent customers an intelligent solution to protect their virtual patrimony, thanks to the leading technology of our partners from WISeKey, is a moment of pride and an enriching innovative experience for us,” commented Jean-Christophe Babin, CEO of the Bulgari Group.

“This is a new milestone on our cooperation with Bulgari to provide customers safer and more reliable mobile communications and transactions with a cyber-resilience edition BVLGARI Vault App that locks personal data such as account usernames and passwords, credit card numbers and access PINs into a secure personal data organizer, creating accountable identities for online activity while the data itself remains protected in a secure cloud vault. Mobile security threats are increasing in number and sophistication, with hackers looking for ways to hijack mobiles for Bitcoin mining, or to trick mobile users into giving up their personal identity and bank account information. Even though mobile operating systems provide app developers with significant security features, hackers have still been able to exploit the massive installed base of Android and iOS devices, using many different infection vectors to place malware,” said Carlos Moreira Founder and CEO WISeKey.

The app, which is a customized version of WISeID, features a Bulgari layout, colors and design. It is available from the Google and Apple App stores.
