The SESAMES Awards 2013 rewarded the best innovations in the field of secure payments at a gala evening in the beautiful surroundings of the Automobile Club de Paris. The CARTES Daily News team caught up with some of the winners after they were awarded their trophies to ask for their reactions...

Think&Go NFC

“I hoped we’d win of course. But were we expecting it? No! The SESAMES are quite exclusive so to win one was a big thrill – but to win two? That’s out of this world!”
Tim Baker, Marketing & Communications Director, Think&Go NFC


“This is a big honour for Infineon. We are one of the most innovative companies in the industry and every year we bring something new to the customer.”
Ji Zeng, Product Marketing Manager, Infineon

Secure-IC SAS

“I’m very proud of my team. They did amazing work on the platform - we are a start-up and this will give the whole organisation a lot of confidence.”
Hassan Triqui, President, Secure-IC SAS


“This award is wonderful. We are trying to help save the Brazilian rainforest from illegal logging by providing a very small device that can be put inside a tree. If we can track the tree, we can help to keep the forest safe.”
Reza Houdjal, Country Manager, France, Gemalto

Giesecke & Devrient

“We are really very pleased to win this award, which recognises how the TEE-TSM system makes the management of security much easier and much more transparent.”  
Wolfgang Decker, Head of Business Line, Mobile Authentication, Giesecke & Devrient

Oberthur Technologies

“We are very happy to get this award because it is the result of a collaboration between Oberthur and Agnitio and this means our companies are trusted.”
Jerome Ajdenbaum, Head of Marketing and Product Management, Oberthur Technologies

SCCP Group

“The award is thanks to our team and our customers. Without them innovation means nothing, it is not real. It only counts when people use your product in the marketplace.”
Hughes Courcier, Head of Sales and Business Development, SCCP Group
