Digital and secure access management based on decentralised technologies

The Berlin based startup YPTOKEY at  Bosch´s incubation program Startup Harbour

YPTOKEY is a software company that provides a digital and secure access management solution based on decentralised technologies and is therefore positioned at the center between assets (e.g. vehicles, locks), mobile devices and decentralised networks. This solution will change the experience around opening and sharing access of assets, because the users’ identities become their key for everything. Users will receive autonomy over their assets and hence a significantly higher comfort and flexibility. Besides, businesses gain the opportunity of cross-industrial service innovation due to the easy third-party integration. Moreover, they avoid the vulnerability of a central point for sensitive data.
