DeviceFidelity, Inc., the world’s leading NFC and security platform provider, today announced that the revolutionary CredenSE NFC microSD supports mobile wallet, mobile identity, access management and secure transaction apps on the recently released Samsung Galaxy S4 across all mobile carriers in all geographies, making it the world’s first NFC secure element solution that is open and accessible to any service provider globally.

The CredenSE NFC microSD easily fits existing business and distribution processes while providing issuer independence and supporting a wide variety of commercial models, paving the path for the mobilization of applications by security service provider. The end-user also receives greater benefits from the NFC microSD beyond expanding the phone storage, by making it easy to upgrade capabilities on their mobile phone or change mobile operators without losing the service or having to pay for re-issuance.
“DeviceFidelity is committed to developing cutting edge NFC technologies that can be used in today’s most popular mobile devices across any network,“ said Fabrice Jogand-Coulomb, VP of Products for DeviceFidelity. “Having the CredenSE microSD secure element supported on phones like the Samsung Galaxy S4 makes deployment of security applications and services hassle-free.“
The CredenSE portfolio leverages DeviceFidelity’s patented technology that allows for clean integration of NFC microSD products into phones that already have NFC technology built-in such as the Samsung Galaxy S4. In this case, the NFC microSD provides an additional Secure Element for NFC phones that is not dependent or controlled by one particular party, thereby enabling all types of institutions such as banks, transit operators, system integrators, but also enterprise and security tokens providers to deploy directly to their consumers. This targeted deployment approach is also useful for cost conscious TSM operators and mobile operators who are looking at reducing upfront costs while controlling access to the NFC capable security platform. Besides supporting the newly launched Galaxy S4, the DeviceFidelity neutral Secure Element solutions are also available for other globally popular smartphones such as the Galaxy S3, iPhone 5, iPhone 4S and Blackberry Z10.
