Trusted Logic Extends Commitment To GlobalPlatform By Upgrading Its Membership To ‘Full’ Status
28 February, 2008 – Trusted Logic, a provider of secure open software for embedded systems, has upgraded its status to become a full member of GlobalPlatform. This level of membership entitles the company to take an active role in shaping and contributing to the development of the industry-leading, open and interoperable GlobalPlatform Specifications via participation in all of GlobalPlatform’s technical committees, task forces and working groups. GlobalPlatform develops and maintains specifications for the entire smart card infrastructure, covering cards, devices and systems.
Already an active member of the GlobalPlatform Device Committee, Trusted Logic now has representation on the Card Committee, the Mobile Task Force and the Compliance Working Group. The company thus fully participates in key areas of development that are central to its core business interests – cards, terminals and the mobile market. It intends to share its expertise and market knowledge to further the future evolution of the GlobalPlatform Specifications in line with industry requirements, while continuing to benefit commercially from the technology. Trusted Logic has already developed a number of products which support GlobalPlatform Card and Device Specifications.
Dominique Bolignano, CEO of Trusted Logic, comments: “Trusted Logic has a strategic business motivation to become fully involved within the GlobalPlatform Card and Device Committees and the Mobile Task Force. In response to customer demand, we already base many of our solutions on GlobalPlatform technology, so it is logical for us to be part of the infrastructure development, by joining the dynamic industry collaboration efforts facilitated by GlobalPlatform’s technical committees. We look forward to taking a more active role as a full member of the organization.”
Bob Beer, Chairman of GlobalPlatform and Vice President of Business Development at Datacard Group, adds: “Trusted Logic has demonstrated a commitment to providing customers globally with the widest possible choice, by its full engagement within, and active deployment of, GlobalPlatform technology. The company has already made a valuable contribution to the work of the GlobalPlatform Device Committee so we welcome its decision to extend its participation and offer expertise and resources to the further advantage of all GlobalPlatform committees.”
