With the advent of cloud computing and an increasingly mobile workforce, it is becoming more and more vital to secure the content of private messages sent to personal devices.
(PRWEB) September 25, 2011
Intercede (London Stock Exchange AIM: IGP), the producer of MyID, a world-leader in identity and credential management systems (IDCMS), is attending the Smart Event World e-ID conference in Nice, France, 21-23 September 2011.
The conference covers the topics of e-ID, e-mobility and smart security with over 150 presentations from world-renowned subject matter experts to a large international audience.
Speaking on Friday 23 September, Intercede’s Chief Technical Officer, Dr Chris Edwards, will be previewing Intercede’s innovative approach to over-the-air (OTA) provisioning of digital certificates to mobile devices. Using these certificates users can read, send and sign secure encrypted emails on their smart phones.
Richard Parris, Chief Executive at Intercede, commented: “With the advent of cloud computing and an increasingly mobile workforce, it is becoming more and more vital to secure the content of private messages sent to personal devices. However, until now, it has been difficult and/or inconvenient to securely load the necessary cryptographic key materials into smartphone handsets and this has been a major barrier to secure mobile email adoption. Our customers are therefore delighted that Intercede has solved this problem and we already have a number of pilot installations scheduled for deployment.”
Intercede will make further announcements about this extension to the MyID platform in due course.
