Gemalto Wins Two Future Mobile Awards from Juniper Research


Companies at the forefront of new developments in Mobile Commerce have been honoured in this year’s Juniper Research Future Mobile Awards.
The Future Mobile Awards are given to companies that Juniper believes have made significant progress within their sector during the previous year, and are now poised to make considerable market impact in the future.

Future Mobile Award for NFC 2013
Gemalto received the NFC award for 2013. For NFC to succeed, it is critical that the ecosystem is presented with solutions that offer interconnectivity regardless of form factor or national market. Gemalto’s TSM Interconnectivity Service represents a potentially key evolutionary development in this regard, reducing the NFC complexity (and time-to-market) for service providers and – from an SE provider perspective – offers the potential to stimulate NFC deployment across a host of services.

“This award recognises the readiness of Gemalto for supporting all service providers in their NFC deployments across the world,” said Winston Yeo, Vice President of Mobile Financial Services, Gemalto. “The Allynis Trusted Service Management (TSM) solution, which has already been successfully deployed for many live NFC projects in US, Europe and Asia, provides the flexibility to quickly and easily onboard new service providers and enables them to deploy a broad range of secure NFC services such as airline boarding passes, transport ticketing or corporate badge. Gemalto TSM hub aggregates all the connectivity in the NFC ecosystem and greatly improves time-to-market for new service introductions, regardless of the location and the secure element form factor.”

Future Mobile Awards for Mobile Payments 2013
Gemalto take their second award this year for Mobile Payments. Across the mobile payments arena, Gemalto has consistently launched best-of-breed solutions in recent years and its Mobile Wallet and Mobile Payment platform continue in this vein. Offering a futureproofed, technology agnostic solution that is built to scale seamlessly and providing two-factor authentication for secure payments to merchants, Gemalto’s product range will deliver a further catalyst to this growth industry.

We are grateful to see the leadership of Gemalto in delivering large-scale secure mobile payment solutions and driving innovations in the mobile commerce ecosystem recognised,” said Winston Yeo, Vice President of Mobile Financial Services, Gemalto. “Gemalto’s secure Mobile Wallet and Allynis Mobile Payment are designed for financial and payment service providers and retailers, supporting a rich and personalised payment experience integrated with merchant offers, promotions, loyalty and location-based services.

    Gemalto is once again positioned as a leader in Gartner User Authentication Magic Quadrant

    The Gartner Magic Quadrant is a graphical representation of how Gartner positions authentication vendors in the marketplace, following its research each year. Gartner categorizes the vendors in the "niche players," "visionaries," "challengers" or "leaders" quadrant. A company's ability to execute and completeness of vision affect their position inside each quadrant.

    Gemalto is once again positioned as a leader in Gartner Magic Quadrant for User Authentication. Every year, Gartner, Inc. performs an independent, in-depth analysis of vendors in the user authentication marketplace.

    According to Gartner, leaders in this Magic Quadrant are vendors with a solid track record and, typically, a significant presence in the market. They have a clearly articulated vision that is in line with the market trends, and their vision is typically backed by solid technical innovation, as well as an understanding of the challenges and opportunities presented by the Nexus of Forces. Leaders' business strategies and execution are very sound. Vendors in this quadrant can provide a strong solution for enterprises in different vertical industries across one or many use cases, typically including emerging needs pertaining to cloud and mobile. *

    According to Gartner, by year-end 2016, about 30% of enterprises will choose cloud-based services as the delivery option for new or refreshed user authentication implementations – up from about 10% today. *

    The publication develops a notion of an "E-Conomics" domain, where "the entire architecture is embedded in a transactional, billing or brokering domain that will create revenue-bearing models from this information flow and exchange".
