G&D Implements Cloud Services for Vodafone

Security consultant and system supplier Giesecke & Devrient has been chosen by telephone company Vodafone Germany to develop innovative security solutions based on standard SIM cards, to make it easier for users of smart phones and laptops to secure access to internet cloud services.

Vodafone’s business and public sector customers, who require sophisticated IT security, are one of the groups that stand to benefit most from this new solution. The platform created by G&D will be used for a variety of applications, including additional security for mobile access to intranet and cloud services, full encryption of e-mail and voice communication, and protection of the data stored on mobile devices.

G&D’s role in the joint project includes delivery of an authentication application present on the SIM cards, as well as the cloud-based authentication service that is run from the Vodafone computer center. The solution works by installing the authentication application in a specially protected part of the SIM card which interacts with cloud-based functions. This eliminates the need for any additional security hardware.
