Gemalto’s Allynis Trusted Service Hub will allow digital service providers to deploy their mobile payment services through a single connection across a comprehensive portfolio of smartphones and mobile networks across the world.
The hub will remove the need for multiple individual contracts between service providers and mobile security enablers typically required in open security schemes. The Allynis Trusted Services Hub is operated from Gemalto’s certified secure data centers, delivering banking-grade security to ensure payment and services inter-operability.
Financial institutions, enterprises, transport operators and other digital service providers will get a one-stop and immediate access to the largest user base using NFC smartphones already equipped with Secure Elements. Over 1.5 billion mobile users worldwide are covered by Gemalto-contracted Trusted Services Management (TSM) platforms, with over a hundred million high-end “multi-tenant” SIM cards already in place to protect and manage sensitive application credentials.
“Mobile contactless services are becoming mainstream and the AllynisTrusted Services Hub is open today to connect service providers who desire security, to mobile customers exactly at the right time,” said Jean-Claude Deturche, Senior Vice President of Mobile Financial Services at Gemalto. “Service providers understandingly want a simple way to deploy their services, and mobile operators and handset makers are investing in more security capabilities. Gemalto is caringly matching these needs and capabilities, addressing service providers’ desire to maximize market reach in a simple and secure way, removing deployment complexity and slashing upfront cost.”
