Billions of people worldwide increasingly want the freedom to communicate, travel, shop, bank, entertain and work – anytime, anywhere – in ways that are convenient, enjoyable and secure. Gemalto (News - Alert), a global specialist in digital security that enables organizations to offer trusted and convenient digital services to billions of individuals, will discuss the future of payments this week.
The company confirmed participation on two panels at the 2013 Payments Summit, a forum for smart and secure payment technology, implementation and markets that is organized by the Smart Card Alliance (SCA).
Gemalto executives expressed their views on both NFC and EMV, enabling event attendees to gain insight into secure transactions and digital security solutions offered in the market.
Gemalto discussed its perspective during the keynote panel session, "Mobile Wallets Debates: NFC vs The Cloud?" This session was led by Jack Jania, senior vice president, Secure Transactions, World Wide Strategic Partnerships on Tuesday, Feb. 5, 2013.
The company will also speak on the panel, "EMV Experience Panel: Issuers, Merchants and Processors Discuss Their Experience With EMV,” on Wednesday, Feb. 6, 2013, from 4:15 - 5:15 p.m.
Gemalto has more than 10,000 employees operating out of 74 offices and 14 research & development centers located in 43 countries. The company was in the news last year when it was selected by the Vodafone (News - Alert) Group, a mobile communications service provider, to provide and operate its global Trusted Service Management (TSM) platform and deploy NFC services solutions.
This contract serves as the foundation for secure and convenient “wave and pay” contactless transactions via a mobile phone.
