G&D promotes idea-sharing among security technology
MUNICH--For the fourth year in succession, Giesecke & Devrient (G&D) and other members of the Munich Network – an informal group of technology companies – held a Security Forum at the G&D headquarters in Munich. Twelve companies were selected from among a significant number of candidates to present their IT security solutions and applications to an audience of investors and G&D managers. As one of the leading providers of security technologies, G&D wants this event not only to be an opportunity for the global IT security community to meet with potential partners but also a chance for G&D to lay the ground for possible future collaborative ventures.
More and more Internet and IT applications are being adapted for mobile use – on cell phones or on notebook PCs: hence the need for greater security in connection with flexible IT solutions. Demand is growing more than ever for new ideas and approaches capable of efficiently protecting IT systems including mobile phones.
The Security Forum provides an effective, informal platform on which companies can present their latest developments and rapidly find cooperation partners.
A total of twelve companies took part in this year’s Security Forum. The Israeli company Bit-Mint Ltd. presented a new virtual payment method for mobile users. iCOGNIZE GmbH is developing innovative personal identification solutions based on Fujitsu hand vein recognition technology for use in access control and timekeeping systems. The Italian company IT Inside presented its MobyTrust platform, specially designed for mobile telephony, which enables the secure transfer of data between users and their banking institutions.
