INSIDE Secure to offer NFC technology and products to Intel

INSIDE Secure, a provider of semiconductor solutions for
secure transactions and digital identity, announced its agreement with Intel to
provide the company with INSIDE’s NFC products and technologies.

The agreement gives Intel access to INSIDE’s software,
firmware and core hardware technology for development of future Intel products.
In addition, INSIDE will provide Intel’s Mobile Wireless Group with access to
scalable NFC solutions based on INSIDE’s MicroRead, SecuRead and Open NFC

We are very excited to have this opportunity to work
alongside Intel in the development of scalable NFC solutions for the industry,”
said Charles Walton, chief operating officer for INSIDE Secure.

The MicroRead NFC controller offers a range of NFC
options and provides the capacity to support multiple secure element types,
including SIM, SE or SD card, to support multiple business models. SecuRead
integrates INSIDE’s MicroRead NFC controller with a secure element and a
GlobalPlatform-compliant Java Card operating system.

Both products are integrated with INSIDE’s Open NFC
protocol stack to provide best-of-breed solutions. Winner of the prestigious
SESAMES Innovation Award, Open NFC has quickly become recognized as an open
solution for NFC enablement on mobile devices, and has received significant
industry support from a broad array of participants in the NFC ecosystem.

NFC is gaining traction in many markets as one of the
most convenient ways to use consumer electronic devices for payments and retail
commerce transactions, for access to facilities and information, and a host of
other applications,” said Aicha Evans, vice-president and general manager of
Mobile Wireless Group.
