G+D Mobile Security shows award-winning TAK Application Security Solution at upcoming events

09/05/2017 Munich Giesecke+Devrient

Munich, May 9, 2017 – The Trusted Application Kit (TAK) developed by G+D Mobile Security is an application security framework for mobile operating systems, like Android and iOS. Using TAK, developers can quickly and efficiently incorporate advanced security functions into their applications during the design process. TAK provides robust security without impact to app development time or the user experience and is therefore an ideal solution for all security-sensitive applications like mobile payment, mobile transit, ticketing etc.

TAK is a solution that enables developers to build in robust security that is specific to the application during the design phase. Developing with TAK provides the best possible security, while remaining non-intrusive to the end user – a critical feature of apps in the FinTech market for example, where payment must be secured at all points. TAK’s features include active feedback, device fingerprinting, and advanced lifecycle security. The ability to develop security critical applications on a standard platform offers flexibility across a wide range of devices.

The solution won a “Best in Show” award recently at the Payments Summit show in Orlando, Florida, hosted by the Secure Technology Alliance. In addition to the financial services market, TAK has been gaining considerable traction in the area of mobile transit.

G+D Mobile Security will be showcasing TAK at a number of upcoming events around the world:

  • Global Public Transport Summit UITP in Montreal, Canada from 15 to 17 May
  • 15. German IT Security Congress in Bonn, Germany, from 16 to 18 May
  • Money 2020 Europe in Copenhagen, Denmark from 26 to 28 June
  • Mobile World Congress Shanghai from 28 June to 1 July
  • CODE Jahrestagung 2017 in Munich, Germany, from 22 to 23 June

“G+D is proud to present its unique TAK solution to a large number of potential customers and partners across market segments,” said Dr. Christian Schläger, Head of Product Management Cyber Security at G+D Mobile Security. “TAK is a layered security tool that protects against code manipulation, network sniffing, and impersonation among other threats. Its server component allows for dynamic, remote security management throughout an app’s lifecycle – a critical feature as new payment and ticketing form factors become prevalent and consumers are able to load credentials on-demand from their mobile devices.”
