We are pleased to be hosting the first Mobile Connect Summit of the year in London on the 25 & 26 April.

As it becomes more apparent that digital identity solutions are needed across all sectors, the mobile industry can play a key role with Mobile Connect, a portfolio of mobile-based secure universal authentication, authorisation and identity solutions.

This Summit is a forum for all stakeholders engaged with digital identity. The event will address the current status of the Mobile Connect deployment as well as the role it fulfills within the future landscape of digital authentication. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn the value and commercial scalability of the identity solution and its evolution as global consistent service enablers.
