Symantec develops secure apps with G&D

Web security firm Symantec is partnering with smartcard vendor Giesecke & Devrient to develop security applications for smartphones.
 
The duo is developing their smartphone security product on a concept named Trusted Execution Environment (TEE), which the pair states allows applications’ sensitive components and data to be securely transmitted, stored and executed in a hardware-protected area on the main processor of the mobile device.
 
As part of the agreement, Symantec is updating its mobile applications to use security products from G&D – a move Stephen Trilling, senior vice president and chief technology officer at Symantec, says will enable his firm’s products to “deliver critical security solutions.”
 
Wolfgang Decker, group vice president at G&D, states the security applications will feature a simple activation process that will make it “easy and cost effective for companies to integrate mobile protection into their IT infrastructures.”
