A Letter From GlobalPlatform's Executive Director, Kevin Gillick

Once again, it has been a busy month for GlobalPlatform. We are pleased to announce that GlobalPlatform technology has been deployed on 22 billion Secure Elements, an estimated 41% of all Secure Elements (SE) deployed globally between 2010 – 2016.  This is very encouraging as it demonstrates the increasing market awareness of the value of open standards. C lick here to read the full story, and share your thoughts with us on TwitterLinkedIn, or WeChat.

We are also drawing closer to our 5th Annual TEE Seminar, which will take place in Beijing this September. We hope that you will be able to join us for this event.
