Workz Group is a mobile and IoT solutions provider that has recently become the first in the MEA region to be certified by the GSMA for embedded SIM technology across its full lifecycle. This covers its full lifecycle including chip production, secure data generation and personalization and remote management services.

In the world, the company is only one of six. eSIM is a next generation technology which will be a key component in the Internet of Things (IoT) supporting the cost-efficient management, automation and remote communication of cellular-connected devices. Workz, which has also been previously certified by the GSMA for secure eSIM production, data generation and personalization, has now received certification for its subscription management counterpart at its Dubai data center. 

Reports indicate there will be 25 billion cellular-connected devices by 2025, yet a recent survey by Microsoft cited security as the number one concern for 97 per cent of businesses implementing IoT adoption. As a preventive measure against data breach, the GSMA recommends that companies using eSIM technology work only with accredited providers. 

Tor Malmros, managing director of the Middle East & Africa, Workz Group said: “Security is the first and last question our clients ask. With our latest certification, we can guarantee a highly secure and risk-free IoT solution across all aspects of eSIM connectivity. We have a proven track record in security and are very quickly establishing the same in eSIM technology. Our latest accreditation means we can now offer GCC and African clients a fully local solution as well as the peace of mind of geo-redundancy across certified Dubai and European locations.”

Recently, Workz was recognized by a market report from Counterpoint as one of the world's leaders in eSIM technology. Since introducing its first eSIM offering last September, the company has partnered with a host of mobile network operators across the world.
