HELSINKI -- Valimo Wireless today announced that it has acquired UniqMinds, a mobile messaging technology company. The terms of the deal are not disclosed. The acquisition strengthens Valimo’s market-leading product offering in strong authentication and mobile signature service provisioning by enabling dramatic improvements in both user experience and service delivery.

“Users face a difficult tradeoff today when seeking to make transactions online, or to access corporate IT resources,” said Will Cardwell, Valimo CEO. “They either experience a time-consuming process to establish their identity, like using one-time password generators or password lists, or sacrifice security by simply entering a static username and password which can be copied, stolen or forgotten. Valimo has spent the last six years developing a simple but complete solution to this challenge based on the easy use of mobile phones and the security of a unique SIM card.”

“UniqMinds’ PEAKm technology allows Valimo to make exciting improvements to our market-leading solution for mobile phone-based strong authentication, which is already in use in 10 countries today and growing fast. Combining Valimo’s and UniqMinds’ technologies, we have been able to significantly increase the efficiency of our solution. This leads to a simple user experience whether you are verifying an on-line banking transaction made from the PC or accessing corporate resources remotely via a VPN. It is now possible to make even the most critical transactions in a legally-binding and non-repudiable way, without the slightest concern that a third party is interfering.”
