The proportion of mobile devices providing open platform functionality is expected to continue to increase as time moves on. The openness of these platforms offers significant opportunities to all parts of the mobile eco-system by delivering the ability for flexible program and service delivery options that may be installed, removed or refreshed multiple times in line with the user’s needs and requirements.

However, with openness comes responsibility and unrestricted access to mobile resources and APIs by applications of unknown or untrusted origin could result in damage to the user, the device, the network or all of these, if not managed by suitable security architectures and network precautions.

Mobile Application Security Solutions are provided by Wealth Zone Technologies on most of the open OS mobile devices.

The Mobile Security Card is a flash memory microSD™ card with an embedded Common Criteria EAL 5+ certified smart card chip. Its Java Card Operating System allows flexible integration of 3rd party applications. Since microSD™ slots have become a common feature in most of today’s smart phones, the Mobile Security Card is an ideal way to extend the corporate security concept to the company’s mobile devices and to protect content and network access.

The Mobile Security Card provides additional or individualized security for many kinds of mobile devices, thus enabling applications and services for mobile users that require secure authentication as well as trustworthy protection of valuable data.

Near Field Communication (NFC) is a short-range wireless technology that enables the communication between devices over a distance of a few centimeters. NFC operates at 13.56 MHz and supports the existing ISO/IEC standards 14443 (Types A/B/Felica). An NFC device can work in two modes: active (battery powered) and passive (radio energy powered).

Mobile NFC services bring a whole new dimension to your customer’s digital life, transforming mobile phones into contactless devices for touch-and-go applications: transport ticketing, payment, loyalty and other innovative services like smart poster, peer-to-peer or access control. Leveraging on contactless technology and the interactivity of mobile phones, service innovation becomes limitless.
