January 23, 2017 // By Jean-Pierre Joosting
Giesecke & Devrient will present a comprehensive portfolio of innovative identity management solutions to meet the challenges of securely managing an increasing number of connected digital devices at the Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona.

As a leader in mobile security, G&D will demonstrate products and technologies enabling seamless identity management from digital banking for financial institutions, security concepts for connected cars and scalable IoT security for enterprises or OEMs to flexible connectivity management for mobile network operators (MNOs) on their way to 5G.

G&D manages its customers’ transactions, identities and assets securely during their entire lifecycle.

Market researchers expect the number of connected devices to almost double from 15 billion devices today to more than 28 billion connected devices by 2020. Three billion connected digital identities such as SIM cards, authentication cards, mobile devices and wearables, mobile payment services and secure connected car systems are already managed today using G&D technology.

At MWC 2017, the company will introduce identity management systems for a new range of applications. For example, secure banking, based on efficient and Anti-Money-Laundering (AML) compliant video identification, will be showcased. The G&D video ident solution enables secure service authentication, payments and digital signatures.

To support the automotive industry on its way to autonomous driving, G&D will present a complete package with automotive specified M2M SIMs, eSIM management and a concept for an automotive security framework. The automotive offering enables the registration of car identities, remote eSIM activation and management as well as secure data exchange within, from and to cars.
