For example, Razer may integrate V-Key’s Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) technology secured by V-Key’s V-OS Smart Token technology, across all of its platforms including PC, web, and mobile applications.
  

“After having looked at various solutions out there, we are very happy today to announce our partnership with V-Key, not just on our Razer Platform but across the entire ecosystem of our hardware, software, and services for Razer.”

 

Li Meng Lee, Chief Strategy Officer of Razer.
