This Week's Top Stories: The Art of the Deal

This week’s roundup of Mobile ID World’s top stories is about as varied as they come, with stories spanning smart car tech, online gambling, biometric payment cards, and more.

But if there’s any theme to discern in this lineup, it may perhaps be dealmaking. Three of this week’s top stories involved companies teaming together on some joint effort, whether it was Novibet working with Jumio to secure its online gambling platform, Precise Biometrics signing a deal with an Asian fingerprint sensor supplier to license its biometric algorithm software, or Samsung SDS investing in the SentinelOne digital security firm:

There’s also all kinds of dealmaking going on in the world of biometric payment cards, where Precise Biometrics and NXP Semiconductors have formed a particularly important partnership. So it’s no wonder our interview with executives from both companies proved popular:
