Gemalto Recognized by IDG as Computerworld Honors Laureate
 

Gemalto recognized in the World-Good category for its leading-edge technology used in an innovative device and pilot program that helped thwart illegal deforestation in the Amazon rainforest of Brazil

AMSTERDAM- May 9, 2013 -(BUSINESS WIRE/ME NewsWire)-- Regulatory News:
Gemalto (Euronext NL0000400653 GTO), the world leader in digital security, has been named a 2013 Laureate of IDG's Computerworld Honors Program. Gemalto was recognized in the World-Good category for its leading-edge Cinterion® M2M technology used in an innovative device and pilot program that helped thwart illegal deforestation in the Amazon rainforest of Brazil. The annual award program honors visionary applications of information technology (IT) promoting positive social, economic and educational change.
Gemalto'sCinterion M2M technology provides wireless connectivity and GPS data for Invisible Tracck™, an innovative device developed by Cargo Tracck™ in Brazil. Installed in rainforest trees, the discreet solution leverages a tiny and durable M2M module to wirelessly send location updates to a central server allowing officials to remotely track trees illegally removed from protected areas. With the solution in place, law enforcement and Brazilian environmental protection agency IBAMA agents were able to respond in real time, traced the loggers to sawmills and prevented the sale and profit from illegally harvested lumber.

“Technology continues to play a pivotal role in transforming how business and society functions. For the past 25 years the Computerworld Honors Program has had the privilege of celebrating innovative IT achievements,” said John Amato, vice president and publisher, Computerworld. “Computerworld honors the outstanding accomplishments of the 2013 class of Laureates in sharing their work. These projects demonstrate how IT can advance organizations' ability to compete, innovate, communicate and prosper.”

“This award recognizes Gemalto for the design and development of technologies that have played a major role in supporting social good in the face of world-changing events,” added RamziAbdine, General Manager of Cinterion M2M at Gemalto Latin America. “The Amazon rainforest tracking and tracing program demonstrates the power of Gemalto's M2M technology in helping to preserve one of the earth's most precious resources.”
