As we approach the so named Fourth Industrial Revolution of a more data driven inter-connected world, it is clear that the core MULTOS facets of security, flexibility, speed, and vendor agnostic open-standard platform are highly suited not only to secure smartcard applications, but also to develop secure device markets such as the IoT. Hence, I am very much looking forward to embracing this new challenge supporting the consortium members and the continued technology growth throughout these exciting times ahead.”

His appointment is timely given MULTOS technology deployment marches rapidly towards 1 billion devices – all in demanding, high security applications – and gives strength to the ongoing efforts of promoting the technology within existing smart card markets where MULTOS already has a strong presence, and expanding MULTOS into new areas that can tap into the benefits of the technology.”
