Morpho manages digital identity with SIMply Me!
Flintbek, November 21, 2011
With "SIMply Me!", Morpho (Safran group) has launched a solution to manage digital identities on the mobile Internet. The solution uses a (U)SIM* to secure the use of mobile subscribers' digital identity credentials to provide secure access, via a mobile phone, a tablet or a laptop, to online services requiring authentication or e-signatures.
As an expert in identification technologies and a major player in digital mobile identities, Morpho has invested in a comprehensive range of e-ID management solutions.
"Part of our strategy is for identification solutions to evolve into e-Identification solutions," explained Paul Naldrett, Senior Vice President Telecoms at Morpho. "SIMply Me! provides strong, secure and valuable Internet identity management for the benefit of mobile operators in the web market. For mobile network operators, the value of the digital identity is increased since this identity is created during the subscription process when identity credentials are acquired. As a result, the solution significantly reduces the risk of identity theft and Man-in-the-Browser (MItB) attacks."
