London, UK8th November 2016 – With the incredible predictions for Connected Device and the Internet of Things (IoT) devices becoming pervasive, today is a perfect time for solution providers and manufacturers to review facilitating technologies. The very nature of increased connectivity unfortunately goes hand in hand with greater opportunities for cyber-attacks, hence considering cost-effective and flexible security to protect consumers and businesses is a critical endeavor.

To aid solution developers and integrators, the MULTOS Consortium has released two informative white papers; Leveraging MULTOS Benefits for IoT Devices and Leveraging the Open MULTOS Standards for Smart Meters, both available for download from ; The whitepapers explain how key risks can be addressed with robust IT security practices, many of which have already been put in practice by secure technologies such as MULTOS, allowing businesses to avoid the pit falls of cyber intrusion. Hot topics are covered including; device software, endpoint identity, data privacy and integrity, device provisioning, and lifecycle management. 

Paul Wilson, Commercial Manager of the MULTOS Consortium says “With the ever increasing reports of data loss, fraud, and system impacts from hacked IT solutions there has never been a more pertinent time to support companies in reviewing their device and system security approaches. With the application of cost-effective security, built on proven Root of Trust mechanisms businesses can protect themselves and their consumers, whilst also leveraging flexibility for efficiency and differentiation.”



MULTOS is the most robust, industry-backed operating system for smart cards and smart devices delivering high-security, simplicity and innovation to the world’s leading issuers, and also implementers of IoT solutions. With close to 1 billion secure MULTOS devices issued across 45 countries, thousands of issuers, including national governments, banks, corporate enterprises and transit authorities have taken advantage of the high security, multi-application platform for their deployment programmes. A wide range of applications including Chip & PIN (EMV) payment, contactless payment, authentication, digital identity, biometrics, loyalty mass-transit ticketing, as well as embedded IoT functions including smart meters and connected devices can be implemented and co-reside, using a MULTOS powered chip.
