ARM logoARM, Gemalto and Giesecke & Devrient today announced the creation of a joint venture dedicated to delivering a secure environment for services running on connected devices, such as tablets, smart-TVs, games consoles and smartphones.

The joint venture, which is subject to regulatory approval, will provide a secure environment for a new wave of advanced services to flourish, based on easy to use, accessible and consistent device security. Technology developed by the joint venture will be based on established solutions from the founding companies.

Gemalto and Giesecke & Devrient have agreed to contribute their respective software expertise to the joint venture. All three companies will contribute assets to the new venture, including patents, software, people, cash and capital equipment. ARM will own 40% of the joint venture, with Gemalto and Giesecke & Devrient each owning 30%.
