Former Goldman Sachs VP Affix Hypersign as CSO

India’s first Decentralised Identity and access management Infrastructure, Hypersign has named former Goldman Sachs Vice President Michael Swan as its Chief Strategy Officer. Hypersign is a simple-to-use authentication solution that secures user data by combining Digital Identity with the blockchain. It offers Password-less Authentication, Verification & Authorization Services while integrating into any ecosystem within minutes.

The startup is building a blockchain-powered, Decentralized Identity and access management Solution for the enterprise and consumers alike. It leverages technologies such as public key infrastructure (PKI),blockchain and Machine Learning to provide passwordless authentication,  authorization, verification and other security services which integrate within minutes and is compatible with legacy IAM systems at an affordable price-point.

“Michael brings a wealth of knowledge, industry experience, and network to help the Hypersign team achieve their vision of creating a world where Personal Data Protection and Online Privacy is a fundamental human right. We’re thrilled to have him on board.” noted Irfan Khan, Hypersign’s Founder and CEO.  

Everyone is aware of my view that institutional uptake of crypto is dependent on constructs that exist in traditional markets today, which need to be replicated, innovated and re-imagined for a decentralized future. The Hypersign DID solutions is the perfect balance of decentralization of ID records and trust that those records are accurate and attested by reputable organizations. There is a strong existing partnership between Hypersign and Unido given these are very much complementary eco-systems.

Hypersign has recently partnered with other blockchain giants such as Polygon, Reef, Elrond, and Harmony and are ready to launch the first ever privacy-focused, gamified whitelisting and user verification solution with integrated token utility on a blockchain network.
