Safelayer Secure Communications, a leader in digital ID management, e-signature and data protection, increased its market presence in Latin America and Europe in 2012.
Already leader in the Spanish market and present in 12 countries through its network of 17 partners, the software developer significantly increased its international turnover by winning new projects for implementing PKI and electronic signature infrastructures.
In collaboration with its local partners in Latin America, Safelayer successfully deployed government PKIs in Paraguay and Uruguay. It also won new contracts in Panama and Colombia for developing digital ID infrastructures to be implemented in 2013.
According to Francisco Jordan, Safelayer's CEO and cofounder, "Safelayer has strengthened its position in LATAM, where we foresee an increase in demand for trust services and the use of digital certificates". "Safelayer technology is a key element in projects that require trusted identification mechanisms and mutual recognition between countries", added Jordan.
In EMEA, where Safelayer had already completed projects in countries including Estonia, France, Belgium, Portugal and Morocco for governments, large enterprise, and trust and digital certification service providers (CSPs), it undertook further projects in the Czech Republic and Portugal.
Owing to the increase in security requirements for accessing critical data via the user's mobile (BYOD), Safelayer foresees an increase in the demand for the use of PKI credentials in mobile devices. In 2012, the company developed new components for mobility environments for its KeyOne product, one of the most complete PKI platforms on the market. The company also announced new modules for its TrustedX e-signature platform that provide greater integration in user tools and simplify the management of digital certificates in corporate environments.
