Valimo and Gemalto partner to provide strong mobile signature solution

“We have seen a significant increase in interest from the telecommunications community for mobile signatures. Gemalto is the most reliable and experienced player in the field of mobile security and is at the forefront in providing the market with inventive and strong solutions for mobile authentication and signing” says Tapio Vailahti, Chief Executive Officer at Valimo. “We are proud that Gemalto embraced Valimo’s mobile signature approach with the VMAC embedded in its SIM cards. With Gemalto committed to the Valimo Mobile Authentication Client, I see good signs ahead.” A mobile signature is the digital equivalent of a handwritten signature on a paper contract. It allows the mobile phone to act as the pen needed for signing almost any e-service, such as online banking, government documents, internet check out, and entry to corporate intranets from outside of the office. Unlike other identification schemes for e-services, mobile signatures require no additional devices or software, and no additional password lists. “Implementing the Valimo VMAC is a natural progressive step from Gemalto’s roll out of mobile signature schemes in Europe,” says Jean Francois Gros, Director Partner Solutions at Gemalto. “The Gemalto SIM cards will provide a state-of-the-art option for mobile operators who intend to roll out mobile signature services to their subscriber base. We consider that the whole SIM community should benefit from a best-of-breed combination with respect to SIM cards and mobile signature applications”. www.gemalto.com www.valimo.com
