Dedicated To Delivering Continuous Innovation

Welcome to the Spring edition of "Security Briefing", our quarterly newsletter with updates on technology & product innovation, company information, insights on market trends, best practices and industry events. 

The past 3 months since our last Security Briefing edition have been exciting for us on many levels, as we launched the latest release of QuikID™ passwordless authentication and had two POC (Proof of Concept) customers buy licenses. We also announced the summer availability of our virtual smart card QuikID™ Smart solution at Mobile World Congress 2016 in Barcelona. We believe that we are the first to announce and demonstrate this smart card and token authentication replacement using smartphones and wearables using our patented QuikSafe™ technology.

The security industry itself was full of dramatic announcements, not all of them cybersecurity breaches! Dell's announcement that it plans to purchase storage maker EMC for a mind-boggling $67 billion, the highest price for a pure-tech acquisition, does not make clear the fate of EMC's information security unit, RSA. More about this below but several analysts say Dell likely has not yet decided whether RSA fits into its long-term plans or should be sold or spun off.

All of this after Gemalto’s acquisition of SafeNet in early 2015. SafeNet has been integrated with Gemalto Payment & Identity segment and its contribution mainly consists of Platforms & Services activities.

Finally, we were named to the Ready to Rocket List for ICT companies for the second time in 2 years - a fantastic accomplishment as this year was especially competitive with many strong contenders!
In short, we have lots of great updates to share with you. I  hope you will enjoy it and we look forward to any feedback you would like to provide.

Sincerely,


Product Showcase

INDUSTRY  UPDATE

Dell buys EMC for $67B In Largest Deal In Tech History*

In  the largest tech deal in history by far, Dell and partners MSD Partners and Silver Lake agreed to buy EMC for $67 billion or $33.15 a share.

This is way over the $27 price being rumored last week, and makes the deal far larger than the $37 billion that Avago paid for Broadcom just last May.

What makes this deal even more interesting is that Dell, with a valuation of around $25 billion, was by far the smaller fish at approximately half the size of EMC.

The biggest part of EMC by far is VMware, which was included in the deal and will continue to be a separately publicly traded company, but EMC will go private and become part of Dell ending the company’s long history as a publicly traded company.

The two combined companies will make the Dell and EMC the world’s largest privately controlled, integrated technology company, according to a statement released by EMC.
