"Mobile Connect brings together an ecosystem of trusted mobile operators and service providers to provide consumers with the ability to use their mobile phone for managing their access to online services, giving them greater control and a means of access that is secure and convenient," said Marie Austenaa, Head of Personal Data, GSMA.

Gemalto has been a strong supporter and technical contributor to the Mobile Connect initiative from day one. Through the Mobile Connect Accelerator program, mobile operators and other organizations can fast-track their deployment of digital identity projects and immediately start to benefit from providing an enhanced customer experience through a more seamless and secure sign-on process."
