Valimo, a provider of mobile signature solutions, and Gemalto, a digital security solutions provider, have announced a partnership to provide the wireless market with mobile signature solution.
Gemalto will integrate Valimo’s Mobile Authentication Client (VMAC) on its SIM cards, in order to make Valimo’s mobile signature application available to the mass market.
A mobile signature is the digital equivalent of a handwritten signature on a paper contract. It allows the mobile phone to act as the pen needed for signing almost any e-service, such as online banking, government documents, internet checkout, and entry to corporate intranets from outside of the office.
Unlike other identification schemes for e-services, mobile signatures require no additional devices or software, and no additional password lists.
Tapio Vailahti, CEO of Valimo, said: We have seen a significant increase in interest from the telecommunications community for mobile signatures. Gemalto is the most reliable and experienced player in the field of mobile security and is at the forefront in providing the market with inventive and strong solutions for mobile authentication and signing.
