Zug, Switzerland, June 12, 2020 – WISeKey International Holding Ltd (“WISeKey” or “Company”) (SIX: WIHN, NASDAQ: WKEY), a leading global cybersecurity and IoT company, announced today that it has renewed its strategic IoT patent for the digital authentication method of valuable goods in the United States, Switzerland, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Singapore and India.This patent protects the pioneering work of WISeKey on the digital certification of authenticity of a physical object, and corresponding computer program and storage device, as well as to the use of the method for digital certification of authenticity of a physical object of value. The method consist of steps for: issuing a storage device including a digital certificate of authenticity; encrypting information reflecting at least one characteristic uniquely associated with the physical object; checking, whenever required, the validity of the digital certificate of authenticity when using a network computer; the network computer cooperating with the storage device and a validating or certifying authority to validate in real time the status of the digital certificate of authenticity; and, modifying the status of validity of the digital certificate of authenticity, whenever required.As the intelligence of devices on the edge increases, so does the attack surface. The expanding of Internet of Things (IoT) is convenient and allows the implementation of many disruptive applications with an increased risk of cyberattacks. Hackers can easily and remotely take control of devices, intercept and manipulate data, tamper with routers and servers and take control of applications.Full patent description is available at: https://bit.ly/3fdbwTBThis patent is particularly strategic for WISeKey as the company just announced plans to develop an IoT-based early warning system to help with the early detection of viruses and future outbreaks. WISeKey will be cooperating with global tech organizations and will use their IoT sensors equipped with the WIShelter app, to measure people’s temperature and provide geolocation of targeted quarantines. WISeKey is confident that an IoT network of interconnected systems along with advances in AI, analytics, connectivity, and digital certification can work together to provide an early warning system that can help reduce the spread of infectious diseases. Cities, governments, and businesses could create a global network of sensors that combine the behavior of individuals with anonymized digital identities to detect the spread of viruses. This would require standardization, security, trust, planning, and implementation on a global scale and an emphasis on privacy.The benefits of using this type of early warning system (EWS) are improved interoperability, sensor and data plug-and-play, and orchestration. With cyberattacks becoming increasingly sophisticated and common, IoT security needs to be completely overhauled and strengthened. IoT services and devices generate enormous amounts of data valuable to everyone from governments to end-users and beyond. WISeKey is deploying “large scale digital ecosystems” for both people and objects using AI, the IoT, and blockchain, and says they will be “respecting the human as the fulcrum of the internet.” The company’s IoT boasts an install base of over 1.5 billion microchips in almost all IoT sectors including agriculture, smart cities, connected cars, smart lighting, drones, servers, computers, cryptocurrency, security, and mobile phones.About WISeKey:WISeKey (NASDAQ: WKEY; SIX Swiss Exchange: WIHN) is a leading global cybersecurity company currently deploying large scale digital identity ecosystems for people and objects using Blockchain, AI and IoT respecting the Human as the Fulcrum of the Internet.

CORRECTION – OMNIQ’s Artificial Intelligence-Based Quest Shield™ Solution Selected by the Talmudical Academy of Baltimore
SALT LAKE CITY, July 10, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — In a release issued under the same headline on June 1, 2020 by OMNIQ, Inc. (OTCQB:OMQS), please be advised that the second paragraph as originally issued contained certain inaccuracies, not related to financial results or projections, which have been corrected below.Quest Shield™ security package provides a proactive ground-breaking cloud-based solution for crime prevention on campuses and in schools using automatic Machine Vision detection and identification of vehicles by license plate, make and color via an AI-based identification algorithm
Real-time alert and notification to law enforcement authorities to actively prevent potential tragediesTechnology developed in Israel, previously deployed with success in sensitive security zones in the U.S., Middle East and elsewhereAddressing Covid-19 concerns, students will be equipped with a contactless, readable ID tag verifying pre-screened temperature test clearanceTalmudical Academy in Baltimore has over 1,000 students and is part of the Chofetz Haim educational chain with more than 35 locations in the U.S., Canada and IsraelOMNIQ, Inc. (OTCQB:OMQS) (“OMNIQ” or “the Company”), announces that it has been selected to deploy its Quest Shield™ campus safety solution at the Talmudical Academy of Baltimore in Maryland.The Quest Shield™ security package uses the Company’s AI-based SeeCube™ technology platform, a ground-breaking cloud-based/on-premise security solution for Safe Campus/School applications. The platform provides unique AI-based computer vision technology and software to gather real-time vehicle data, enabling the Quest Shield™ to identify and record images of approaching vehicles including color, make and license plate information. The license plate is then compared against the school’s internal watch list to provide immediate notifications of unauthorized vehicles to security and administrative personnel. In addition to providing a vehicle identification and recognition solution to the Talmudical Academy, the Quest Shield™ comprehensive security platform addresses other security concerns including controlling access to the buildings and visitor management as well as the ability to pre-register guests for school activities. Additionally, as part of COVID-19 mitigation, parents in Maryland will be asked to take and record their child’s temperature each day before they leave for school. Quest Shield™ will automate this process, by providing parents an online form where they may record the temperature. All Talmud Academy students will be equipped with an ID tag that will have a QR code that can be read with a barcode scanner. As students enter campus, faculty equipped with Quest handheld scanners will read the barcode to confirm that the student’s temperature has been taken that day; if the form has not been filled in, faculty will check temperatures before allowing students inside. Shai Lustgarten, CEO of OMNIQ, commented: “It is our privilege to work with the Talmudical Academy to provide our solution to enhance safety at their Baltimore campus. Quest Shield™ is an extension of the homeland security solution we designed for the Israeli authorities to fight terrorism and save lives.”Rabbi Yaacov Cohen, Executive Director, Talmudical Academy of Baltimore, commented: “Concern about campus safety and the safety of our students and faculty drove the Talmudical Academy to seek ways to implement new strategies aimed at preventing crimes and violence that may be committed on the school grounds. The unfortunate reality today is that situations we could never imagine just a few years ago are happening now with increasing regularity. Most security systems that are currently being deployed on other campuses are good at recording events subsequent to crimes being committed. With Quest Shield™, we have an opportunity to alert personnel and Law Enforcement ahead of any sign of violence.”Mr. Lustgarten added: “The Quest Shield™ has been tailored to provide a proactive solution to improve security and safety in schools and on campuses as well as community centers and places of worship in the U.S. that have unfortunately become a target for ruthless attacks. We’re pleased to work with a forward-thinking organization like the Talmudical Academy, it is gratifying that the Academy selected the Quest Shield™ platform to strengthen its security precautions.”“Additionally, many schools and communities are expressing concern around children returning to school in the fall due to COVID-19. With that in mind, Talmudical Academy will also employ the Quest Shield™ to provide an automated screening process to confirm that students have had their temperatures checked, per Maryland regulation, upon their arrival on campus and prior to them entering the school facilities.”Mr. Lustgarten concluded, “We are proud to be able to improve student safety in the U.S., as well as in other vulnerable communities. Quest Shield™ has previously been implemented by a pre-K through Grade 12 school in Florida and at a Jewish Community Center in Salt Lake City. We look forward to working closely with the Academy and other institutions to promote the health and safety of students, faculty and support personnel.”About OMNIQ, Corp.

U.S. Dairy Delivers Sustainable Ingredient Solutions + Global Product Inspirations
Arlington, VA, July 10, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The versatility and functionality of U.S. dairy ingredients will be on display, virtually, at the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT) annual expo, being held next week. At a pre-IFT special access webinar held July 7, the U.S. Dairy Export Council (USDEC)’s leadership shed light on the U.S. dairy industry’s ambitious sustainability goals for 2050, announced upcoming scientific sessions and previewed exciting technical and innovation resources for IFT attendees to learn how U.S. Dairy delivers on consumer demand for global taste adventures, balanced nutrition and sustainable food production.Education around the industry’s sustainability efforts is a key component of USDEC’s virtual IFT presence this year, as it aims to shine a light on the aggressive new environmental stewardship goals set this spring which include becoming carbon neutral or better by 2050 in addition to optimizing water usage and improving water quality. These goals build on a decades-long commitment to producing nutritious dairy foods that can feed a growing global population in the most economically viable and socially responsible way. They align with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, specifically those focused on food security, human health and responsible stewardship of natural resources, including animals.“We want to be the source of choice when you think about a partner who can not only help nourish people, but also the planet,” said Krysta Harden, Executive Vice President of Global Environmental Strategy for Dairy Management Inc. and Interim Chief Operating Officer at USDEC, during the webinar. “Collectively passing new and aggressive goals is just one way U.S. Dairy can prove we are a global leader in this area.”Consumers and manufacturers alike might be surprised to learn that of all greenhouse gas emissions in the United States, the dairy industry — from feed production to post-consumer waste — currently contributes only 2%. USDEC developed a short quiz to encourage people to test their sustainability knowledge and learn other fun facts.“Innovation continues despite these challenging times and U.S. Dairy resources and expertise can support successful product development,” said Vikki Nicholson-West, Senior Vice President – Global Ingredient Marketing at USDEC. “We’re thrilled to have Krysta’s talents and sustainability focus on board as our new interim COO, guiding our extensive network of staff and representatives around the world.”USDEC’s virtual IFT presence this year also serves as an opportunity to virtually travel and visually experience foods from around the world through a showcase of globally-inspired, fusion-style menu/product prototype concepts. From drinks to desserts, these examples capitalize on popular trends such as the popularity of Latin American influences. For example, high quality dairy ingredients such as Greek-style yogurt, whey protein, milk permeate, paneer cheese and butter round out a savory empanada that boasts 85g of protein. WPC 34 adds quality protein to a Piña Colada (alcoholic or non-alcoholic), providing extra refreshing permission for indulgence.Beyond learning about U.S. dairy’s sustainability journey and seeing innovative product concepts at USDEC’s virtual IFT booth, there are also a variety of dairy-related online scientific symposia debuting that navigate the evolving processing and nutritional landscape, particularly addressing the important role of sustainable food production and the challenge of providing valuable nutrition to the growing global population. These include:Protein Processing 2.0— Next Gen Scalable Technologies for Advancing the Functionalization and Sustainable Production of Protein IngredientsArtificial Intelligence and Machine Learning – For a Safer, Better, and Sustainable FoodNutrient Profiling – From the Global Landscape to the Evidence BasePlant-based eating patterns vs. plant-based foods – Why distinguishing between the two is vital for industry, research, and consumersTo learn more about how U.S. Dairy is delivering sustainable ingredient solutions and global product inspirations during virtual IFT, visit ThinkUSAdairy.org/IF20. ### About U.S. Dairy Export CouncilThe U.S. Dairy Export Council® (USDEC) is a nonprofit, independent membership organization that represents the global trade interests of U.S. dairy producers, proprietary processors and cooperatives, ingredient suppliers and export traders. USDEC aims to enhance U.S. global competitiveness through programs in market development that build global demand for U.S. dairy products, resolve market access barriers and advance industry trade policy goals. As the world’s largest producer of cow’s milk, the U.S. dairy industry offers a sustainably produced, world-class and ever-expanding portfolio of cheese varieties as well as nutritional and functional dairy ingredients (e.g., skim milk powder, lactose, whey and milk proteins, permeate). USDEC, together with its network of overseas representatives around the world, also works directly with global buyers and end-users to accelerate customer purchasing and innovation success with quality U.S. dairy products and ingredients.Attachment07102020 release photoErica Davis
