AUSTIN, Texas -- July 16, 2013

Gemalto (Euronext NL0000400653 GTO), the world leader in digital security and
PCS Mobile, a value added reseller specializing in mobile data products and
services for state and local public safety organizations, are joining forces
to provide a comprehensive solution for law enforcement agencies to comply
with the Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) mandate. Beginning
September, 2014, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) will require law
enforcement personnel to use advanced, secure, authentication methods to
access the CJIS database.

The foundation of the offering is Gemalto’s Protiva Defender Suite, a
combination of smart cards, physical and mobile tokens (OTP), an
authentication server and associated consultancy services, backed by PCS
Mobile's experience in providingmobile laptops, professional services and
customer education. The solution ensures customers are not only compliant with
upcoming CJIS requirements, but are provided flexible technology that can be
used for multiple applications (e.g. remote network access, secure email,
physical access, etc.) and is scalable to keep pace with PCS Mobile’s growing
customer base.

As computing and communications devices become smaller in size and
increasingly mobile, it is necessary for law enforcement to run criminal
background checks from multiple devices, such as rugged yet mobile computers,
including laptops, tablets and handheld devices with wireless connectivity.
With Gemalto’s Protiva Defender Suite, PCS Mobile gives law enforcement
agencies the security tools needed to access the information while on the go.

”We provide a full-scale solution that ensures our customers have the security
tools and mobile devices they need to access the federal criminal database
without interruption,” said Kathy Pakkebier, PCS Mobile, President. “Gemalto
supports us through the entire process, from consulting and understanding
customer needs through product delivery. We look forward to a long and
successful collaboration with Gemalto.”

”The partnership between Gemalto and PCS Mobile allows law enforcement
agencies to get everything they need from one source,” said Tom Flynn, Vice
President of Identity and Access at Gemalto North America. “From hardware and
secure identity to advice and training, we ensure CJIS compliance with less
