Gemalto, a provider of digital security solution, announced it has expanded the capabilities of its Allynis Trusted Services Hub allowing secure service deployment to 350 million more mobile devices.
With this expansion, enterprises and digital services providers connected to Gemalto’s Allynis Trusted Services Hubimmediately gain access to 350 million additional potential users, with Gemalto handling all the back-office process on their behalf, the company said.
The development offers users a simple path to deployment across hundreds of millions of Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) enabled devices. The company expects to offer many more TEE enhanced services appearing through 2015.
The Trusted Execution Environment is an isolated hardware-protected processing environment within smartphones and other devices that enables dynamic security-sensitive applications on-the-go, such as authentication, VPN and secure email, payment and content protection.
By connecting to the Trustonic TEE, which is embedded in a large number of connected objects and remotely activable, the Allynis Trusted Service Hub is scaling up the addressable base of end users to maximize market reach for service providers seeking secure, rapid and easy deployment.
For end users, the process is completely transparent. When a secure app such as VPN is installed, Allynis Trusted Service Hub automatically secures it into the TEE, providing users and service providers with reassurance of their credentials, tokens and content data, the company said.
“Today, the addition of Trustonic TEE-enabled devices translates into hundreds of millions of new reachable users by enterprises and service providers who wish to protect their data, instantly”, said Jean-Claude Deturche, senior VP of Mobile Financial Services at Gemalto.
“Allynis Trusted Services Hub is fully technology-agnostic and addresses any type of security framework. In addition to offering the broadest reach of users, it also offers the most future-proof technology enabling service providers to maximize market reach in a simple and secure way across mobile platforms,” Deturche added.
