GlobalSign Partners with Hitachi on Secure Mobile Solutions

(PR Web Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) February 28, 2013 GlobalSign, the enterprise SaaS Certificate Authority, and Hitachi, the leading global electronics company, announced today at RSA a technology partnership around the integration of Hitachi’s KeyMobile MSD solution and GlobalSign’s digital credentials for mobile devices, delivered and managed through its Enterprise PKI platform. The integration will allow organizations to deploy strong authentication to networks using popular mobile devices including Android and Windows devices.

By securing digital credentials (known as Digital Certificates) in Hitachi’s tamper resistant KeyMobile microSD card embedded within the mobile device, organizations can reduce network breach vulnerabilities often caused by man in the middle attacks caused with weak passwords. Protecting Digital Certificates on secure hardware significantly reduces the risk of unauthorized users accessing sensitive and private resources.

“GlobalSign is excited about the Hitachi technology partnership as it brings another secure mobile management option to our customer base. Merging our technologies offers organizations a way to implement strong authentication to a growing number of employer furnished and employee owned devices,” said Lila Kee, Chief Product Officer GlobalSign, “With the smartcard residing in the microSD chip, enterprises can avoid costly and clumsy external smart card readers, giving employees the convenience without a security trade-off. “ As Mobile devices usage continues to soar, organizations must face the realities that their workforce has tremendous productivity opportunities if these devices are leveraged securely and in a method employees can easily adopt. Securing GlobalSign’s Enterprise PKI digital certificates into the smartcard of Hitachi’s KeyMobileMSD is the perfect match of security and convenience. Utilizing the microchip’s memory capability, administrators can easily install additional resources (drivers, apps, files) directly onto the chip sparing users from requiring separate installations of vital resources needed to enable secure connections to the network.

Koichi Nakai, President of Security&Smart ID Solutions Division, Hitachi, Ltd adds, Hitachi is pleased to bring to market with GlobalSign a cost effective and secure solution for remote Mobile device users to connect WiFi and VPN networks to access vital resources needed to stay productive.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

Featured Whitepapers

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
