QuoVadis Accredited As Qualified TSP In Europe

October 16, 2017

QuoVadis has been accredited in the Netherlands under the Qualified Trust Service Provider [TSP] regulations under eIDAS, the regulation which establishes updated electronic identification and trust services for electronic transactions in the European Union.

Founded in Bermuda, QuoVadis is a leading global Certification Authority [CA] providing cloud-based Trust/Link Managed PKI [Public Key Infrastructure] services, including TLS/SSL digital certificates for web security as well as eID for authentication, encryption, and electronic signature.

QuoVadis also provides electronic signature platforms including mass signature and trusted time-stamping solutions for e-invoicing, as well as cloud-based signing platforms for individuals. QuoVadis electronic signatures are used on more than 60 million electronic transactions annually.

Roman Brunner, Managing Director of QuoVadis, announced the company’s accreditation under new regulations for electronic identification and trust services for electronic transactions in the European Union.

QuoVadis was first accredited as a Bermuda Authorised Certification Services Provider in 2002 under the island’s Electronic Transactions Act.

QuoVadis later established operations in Switzerland, the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, and the United Kingdom with close to 70 employees. The company also has a cloud hosting and co-location hosting subsidiary located in Bermuda.

Roman Brunner, Managing Director of QuoVadis, said, “QuoVadis has been a Qualified issuer in Europe for close to a decade, and is pleased to step up to the new eIDAS standard. Through its accreditation of TSPs, eIDAS seeks to increase interoperability and legal certainty in cross-border online transactions, fostering a ‘digital single market’ in the EU.”

“Perhaps the biggest shift in the new standards is the creation of Qualified Seals for corporate entities/legal persons versus Qualified Signatures for natural persons, allowing more flexibility in electronic transactions such as e-invoicing,” continued Mr. Brunner.

In addition to acting as an EU Qualified TSP, QuoVadis is also an issuer under the Netherlands Government PKIoverheid programme. QuoVadis is also accredited as a ZertES Qualified and SuisseID issuer in Switzerland.

Following a transaction in early 2017, QuoVadis is now the Managed PKI brand of WISeKey, a leading Swiss cybersecurity and IoT [Internet of Things] company, listed on the Swiss SIX Exchange.
