3GSM BARCELONA, February 12, 2007 - From technology that enables consumers to use their mobile phone to buy a sun hat on the way to the beach to the delivery of the latest entertainment over mobile and broadband connections, VeriSign, Inc. (NASDAQ: VRSN), the leading provider of digital infrastructure for the networked world, today announced it will be showcasing its communications portfolio at 3GSM World Congress, including digital content, mobile commerce and mobile security solutions designed for network operators, Internet portals, media companies and retail brands.
"Mobility continues to be of great interest to enterprises and global brands, but many are still concerned about cost-efficient mobile payment frameworks, scalable revenue-generating content delivery platforms and end-to-end security," said Stratton Sclavos, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman, VeriSign. "Our digital infrastructure solutions allow our customers to launch new services quickly and economically, with the intelligence, scale and security necessary to deliver a compelling consumer experience."
3GSM attendees will find a vast array of demonstrations at VeriSign's booth (Hall 1, D59) including:
o Digital Content - VeriSign will showcase a variety of digital
content services, allowing companies to deliver, manage and bill for dynamic mobile content, across and between major operator networks.
