Gemalto aims to bring profitable security to IoT at Mobile World Congress 2016

Posted by Zenobia HegdeFebruary 23, 2016

Gemalto, a provider in digital security, is showing visitors to its stand at Mobile World Congress 2016 (Hall 5,Stand 5A80), how to make the Internet of Things (IoT) secure, profitable and accessible.

Attracting the attention of both device manufacturers and technology providers, for example, the connected car is probably one of the most coveted and complex IoT products. Gemalto will demonstrate how consumers can use their electronic driving license to unlock and start cars and, in conjunction with automotive suppliers, Valeo, how to easily and securely share virtual car keys between smartphones thanks to Valeo InBlueTM technology.

IoT Quality of Service is the perfect tool for operators and device manufacturers to monitor the network quality and reliability used by smart objects. On-Demand Connectivity provides an instant connection for M2M and consumer products, straight from the box. Visitors will be able to take part in a virtual reality journey to discover how we enable this new world of mobility. 

But the IoT also rewrites the business rulebook, Sentinel software monetisation optimises profitability with flexible licence models that track and control usages, and manage user entitlements. Authentication and Encryption Solutions address vulnerabilities in devices, cloud platforms and communication channels. Wearable Payment Solutions enable secure payment for end users via any connected device, including the latest MyKronoz smartwatches. 

How to marry security and convenience in eCommerce & mPayment, supporting anytime, anywhere shopping experiences via all types of mobile device is also a focus for Gemalto. 

Mobile Dynamic Card Verification fights card-not-present fraud without compromising the shopper’s eCommerce journey, generating a constantly changing security code on a mobile app. For Cloud-Based Mobile Payment, Gemalto demonstrates a complete solution from consumer enrolment to card digitisation deployment across all networks, security frameworks and payment schemes. Gemalto’s secure and convenient payment solutions portfolio also expands to Direct Carrier Billing, through its affiliate company Netsize, where end users can pay for digital content, and services such as transport ticketing, quickly and easily via their regular phone bill. Gemalto also highlights Mobile Connect-compliant Mobile ID solutions that will finally spell an end to username-and-password fatigue for consumers in the online and m-commerce space.

Gemalto will introduce products and services for mobile operators, consumer and industrial device makers, banks and service providers that combine the following features: robust management of personal credentials, user friendliness, effective monetisation, and the flexibility necessary to keep pace with the most dynamic markets on the planet.
