Together with Munich Network, a corporate network for technology companies, Giesecke & Devrient (G&D) has organized its third Mobile Security Forum at the company’s Munich headquarters. From a field of 30 applicants, 10 were chosen to take part. At the event, these companies presented their IT security solutions and applications to a select group of investors and G&D managers. For G&D, a leading provider of security technologies, the event is both a platform for international companies to talk to potential partners and an opportunity for the company itself to sound out possible partnerships.
Whether on a cell phone or notebook, Internet and IT applications are becoming more and more mobile. At the same time, more and more is expected of the security solutions for these mobile applications. Security specialist G&D is already able to provide a range of solutions, for example for secure mobile office and online banking applications.
“Our R&D focuses on finding innovative solutions that offer effective protection for an increasingly networked and mobile society. That is why we are encouraging an intensive exchange of ideas between providers of security technology. Our Mobile Security Forum is an informal and effective opportunity for companies to present their latest developments, seek out synergies, and forge partnerships with others,” says Dr. Kai Grassie, Head of the New Business division at G&D, which was responsible for organizing the event.
