Read our key thoughts and takeaways from MWC 2019 where the headlines were dominated by 5G and folding smartphones.

P.A.ID Strategies is excited to announce that it has launched its new Digital Secure Solutions: Credentials, Embedded + IoT Devices Market Intelligence Service to clients. It found that the market for secure credentials and embedded hardware for connected devices increased in value by 15.4% in 2018 and is forecast to rapidly grow by a further 41% by 2022 as emerging applications in the IoT implement security and digital credentials are introduced alongside existing smart cards.
