TC TrustCenter expands mobile E-Commerce activities

Hamburg (PROTEXT)

TC TrustCenter - one of Germany's leading certification authorities - has joined the global initiative Radicchio. This move enables TC TrustCenter to strengthen its activities in the sector for wireless application security. Branching out from the company's existing business, TC TrustCenter now aims to service the booming market for wireless communications by providing a variety of products and services that ensure secure and authentic wireless communication. Today it is possible to use a mobile phone to access a wide variety of electronic services around the clock, such as internet banking or online stock brokering. Until now, one of the key considerations which has prevented customers from utilizing the full potential of such services has been the perceived lack of security for payments and transactions conducted through a mobile device. "Together with renowned companies, including mobile operators, device manufacturers, system integrators and financial institutes, we will be joining Radicchio in clearing the road for secure, convenient wireless e-commerce solutions," stated Product Manager Michael Sillus of TC TrustCenter. And Stefan Engel-Flechsig, Managing Director of Sonera SmartTrust Germany and founding member of the Radicchio initiative accentuates "The global work of the Radicchio members stands to benefit significantly by the inflow of the outstanding domestic and international expertise in the area of certification authorities that the Hamburg company TC TrustCenter has."
