Gemalto, ASSA ABLOY, and Verint Discuss Security Issues in Interviews


RYE BROOK, N.Y., May 19, 2009 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- "Gemalto is the world leader in digital security solutions. We make a wide range of secure personal devices like EMV payment cards, SIM cards for cell phones, contactless payment cards, electronic passports and other government identity credentials. Our roots are in smart cards, so all the devices we make are derived from that microcomputer technology, although of course there are many forms other than just cards. They all have a secure microprocessor and special software that we develop."

These are among the insights discussed by Mr. Mr. Jack Jania, Vice President and General Manager, Secure Transactions Business Unit, Gemalto ( For the entire interview:

Mr. Angelo Faenza, General Manager, PERSONA, ASSA ABLOY Door Security Solutions (, told us, "Our primary target markets are campuses--university campuses, prep school campuses, military bases. The main drivers in this market are the need for enhanced security and greater convenience. A campus tends to have many buildings with lots of doorways spread over a large area which makes mechanical key systems less than desirable for security and convenience reasons. Instead, most campuses tend to rely on locks that operate off the same magstripe cards used for other campus transactions including dining, vending and retail purchases. The locks are opened using a standard high coercivity magnetic stripe card, with tracks one or three open for encoding. This configuration provides maximum programming flexibility, allowing security access information to be stored on tracks one or three and leaving track two for encrypted ID information."
