Gemalto invests in Strong Auth Tokens

Apr 08, 2010 by Sebastian Rohr

Just recently my Strong Authentication report has been published and now there is one vendor less in the scope: French-American card and token giant GEMALTO announced that it acquired the niche player TODOS: http://www.todos.se/index.php/media/archives/gemalto_acquires_e-banking_specialist_todos_ab/ Todos has some very interesting tokens, but I am pretty sure that Gemalto was just after the Todos'IP around online-banking security. Unknown to most of the world, it is Todos (or now Gemalto) that owns the technology that secure online banking solutions are based upon. Hopefully, Gemalto does not mess up those solutions too (remember the Debit/Credit Card frenzy that broke loose when the Gemalto chips on many German cards failed to operate after 2010 "suddenly came around the corner" and cards were not able to work with the date input?). Being a victim of this bug myself, I strongly hope the product scope and expertise of Todos will remain with Gemalto - I have deep respect for the achievements of the Swedish experts!!!

Analytics are the tools, techniques and technologies that can be used to analyze this data into information with value. These analytics are now being widely adopted by organizations to improve their performance. However what are the security and governance aspects of the use of these tools?
