GlobalPlatform, the organization which standardizes the management of applications on secure chip technology, is pleased to announce its newest Observer Member, Advanced Card Systems Ltd. (ACS).

ACS, a leading supplier of PC-linked smart card readers, has joined GlobalPlatform to contribute to industry efforts towards tighter security, better management and accelerated deployment of secure chip technology.

As an Observer Member, ACS is able to participate in discussions held by the GlobalPlatform Advisory Council and contribute to GlobalPlatform's task force initiatives. These groups define specific market requirements and assess how GlobalPlatform's Specifications can be advanced in line with future needs.

"We are delighted to be part of GlobalPlatform," comments Denny Wong, Chairman and CEO of ACS. "We recognize the importance of being part of technological developments as they are being shaped, instead of adapting once they have happened. Our membership will enable us to play a more active role in advancing smart card technology."

Kevin Gillick, Executive Director of GlobalPlatform, adds: "We are pleased to see continued engagement from smart card players across the Asia Pacific region as we move into 2014. We look forward to welcoming Advanced Card Systems Ltd to GlobalPlatform and receiving its input on topics relating to smart cards, smart card readers and the chipsets market."
