Gemalto focuses on Digital Security
Gemalto expands beyond the smart card technology to address the Identity and Access Management (IAM) market, forecasted by IDC to evolve from US$ 3.4 billion (EUR 2.5 billion) in 2006 to more than US$ 5 billion (EUR 3.75 billion) in 2010. Thanks to its more than 1500 R&D engineers, the report foresees “a wide avenue of growth for Gemalto products”. According to IDC, smart cards are perceived as a preferred operational platform to develop IAM solutions. Olivier Piou, Gemalto CEO reaffirmed its commitment to expanding in the digital security market: "In fact, smart cards represent only part of what Gemalto offers to enterprises seeking more security and convenience".
