Gemalto, a leading player in digital security business, has announced that it has completed the acquisition of O3SIS. The objective is to offer personal data management solution across mobile and fixed line networks.
O3SIS AG provides carrier grade Personal Data Management solutions to mobile network operators. With more than one billion personal data records managed and more than 300 devices supported, including iPhone and BlackBerry, O3SIS’ software suite, according to Gemalto, allows consumers on the move to access and share any kind of personal data – contacts, email, multimedia content – wherever its location in the mobile equipment or in the cloud.
O3SIS also provides the “push email” technology used to notify and transfer email to any mobile subscriber’s device regardless of the storage place. O3SIS, which is based near Cologne, Germany, counts over 20 blue-chip customers including tier-one operators, retailers and large enterprise customers.
Commenting on the transaction, Oliver Piou, Gemalto’s chief executive officer says, “With more than 70 references, Gemalto is already a leading provider of phonebook backup solutions to mobile operators around the world. With this combination, we expand Gemalto’s offering in our rapidly growing software and solutions business, bringing our customers the first fully integrated personal data management solution across mobile and fixed line networks”.
O3SIS, which employs approximately 60 people, will be fully integrated into the Gemalto Mobile Communications segment over the coming months, and will be forming the core of Gemalto’s personal data management offer to mobile network operators.
By combining O3SIS’ handset synchronisation to Gemalto’s SIM card and USB dongle-based software solutions, as well as its infrastructure for operated services, Gemalto will target mobile network operators.
