QWERX Receives Patent for Device Authentication and Communication Protection on a System on Chip

The patented technology is designed to be integrated into SoC devices, enabling inter- and intra-chip and device communication.

MERRIFIELD, Va. - December 19, 2022 - (

QWERX, a software company that delivers secure, quantum-proof enterprise machine identity management and authentication, today announced that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) had granted patent US 11,463,439 B2 to QWERX for "Systems and Methods for Device Authentication and Protection of Communication on a System on Chip."

This patent raises the QWERX patent portfolio to nine issued and two pending patents, and further validates the company's commitment to providing next-generation solutions for secure device authentication and data protection. The patented technology provides an integrated and secure authentication mechanism on a System on Chip (SoC) that enables users to securely authenticate and protect their communications.

"We are proud to receive this patent, which acknowledges our commitment to innovation and excellence," said John Ellingson, Chief Technology Officer (CTO) of QWERX. "Authenticating network devices is essential in electronic communications. With this patented technology, we will enhance our product portfolio to include embedded systems that will ultimately protect myriad devices like those in the Internet of Things (IoT). The technology we are developing overturns the outdated notions of shared secrets and stored credentials that are the root cause of so many network vulnerabilities today." 

The patented technology is designed to be integrated into SoC devices, facilitating communication both inside and among devices - providing an easy-to-use authentication mechanism that is both secure and efficient.

"The USPTO is an internationally recognized government leader in intellectual property protection. QWERX appreciates USPTO's rigor and acumen in evaluating and granting the highly technical patents within our portfolio. More broadly, we applaud USPTO's efforts under director Kathi Vidal to incentivize innovation and encourage entrepreneurship by safeguarding inventors' unique ideas," said QWERX Chief Operating Officer (COO) Randall Fort, a former head of intelligence at the U.S. Department of State and U.S. Treasury. 


QWERX, Inc. is a software company that delivers secure, quantum-proof machine identity management and authentication to the enterprise. The company's patented authentication protocol eliminates 80% of external network breaches associated with stolen digital credentials — by completely eliminating the use of credentials that can be stolen. QWERX has revolutionized the science of secure endpoint authentication by automating orchestrated continuous verification of all devices across a network with rotating, symmetric keys that disappear after each use.

Proxymity, the leading digital investor communication platform, today announced its collaboration with FIS® to launch FIS Proxy Voting by Proxymity. The digital proxy voting service connects issuers, intermediaries, and investors ensuring that investor communications are delivered in real-time.

Rapidly increasing cost pressures amidst an unpredictable economic environment necessitates a reliable, intuitive solution to investor demand for increased transparency. This solution allows businesses to take better control of investor communication and proxy voting, backed by a subscription-based global technology solution. "This new service with FIS offers excellence in transparency, with communications occurring instantly," said Jonathan Smalley, Co-Founder and COO of Proxymity.

Tapping into the service will allow FIS clients to benefit from an end-to-end digital connection that is expected to improve their shareholders' voting experiences by facilitating instant distribution of meeting announcements. 

The new service will also enable FIS clients to establish extended deadlines and provide them with an enhanced confirmation procedure. Proxymity's research has revealed that, upon adoption of its digital proxy voting solution, votes arrive with issuer more than 48 hours earlier and usually show a deadline improvement of up to six days on average, when compared to traditional paper-based processes. 

This proxy voting service supports active governance with issuers contributing to the fulfilment of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) goals and Shareholder Rights Directive II (SRD II) regulatory requirements. FIS banking and capital markets clients will benefit from the very best investor relations solutions, saving time and money by sending votes in real-time to issuers or their agents, and receiving verifiable digital proof that their shareholders' votes have been cast.

Capital markets firms without a digital proxy solution could benefit significantly from this solution, with the recent FIS Global Innovation Report showing that 75% of global executives from capital markets firms believe ESG offers an opportunity to improve competitiveness in the market.

Tony Warren, Head of Strategy and Solutions Management for Capital Markets, FIS said, "Efficient corporate governance is key to our business and that of our clients, and we believe that this new service will strengthen this proposition and could reduce costs for several issuers at this critical time. This new solution is another example of how FIS fulfills its mission: Advancing the way the World Pays, Banks and Invests."

Jonathan Smalley, Co-Founder and COO, Proxymity, said: "The benefits of this collaboration between FIS and Proxymity will be felt keenly among businesses eager to eradicate inefficiencies in their current channels. The primary goal must be to ensure investor communications are seamless and swift, which FIS Proxy Voting by Proxymity will guarantee. We look forward to seeing the fruits of this collaboration."
