Gemalto enables swift and secure creation of Trusted Digital Identities
Gemalto, the world leader in digital security, showcases at Mobile World Congress its ability to enable Trusted Digital Identities that will unlock a new generation of secure and convenient digital services. Leveraging the company’s unrivalled experience across fields such as identity verification, biometrics and mobile services, Gemalto integrates all the technologies needed to seamlessly capture biometrics and verify user identities, and then digitize them securely. As a result, MNOs, OEMs and other enterprises will be able to accelerate their digitalization strategies, launch new services, fight fraud and meet relevant regulations.
Gemalto’s Trusted Digital Identity solutions encompass three fully integrated steps: capturing ID documents, verifying their authenticity as well as the holder’s identity, and then creating the Trusted Digital Identity itself. Gemalto’s approach enables customers to use multiple channels in-store or online. Identity credentials – including ID cards, driver licenses and passpor ts- and biometrics, such as fingerprint and facial recognition, can be captured using smartphones and tablets or high-end scanners. The company’s expertise in biometric technologies and secure identity documents then ensures rapid and reliable verification, speeding the customer acquisition process.
Gemalto’s fast multi-channel process enables MNOs and other service providers to simplify and digitize their work flows. Operating costs are reduced and the customer experience enhanced. Moreover, a Trusted Digital Identity can serve as a gateway for subscribers to access multiple security-sensitive services such as mobile money, eGov and online banking, allowing MNOs to participate in these fast growing sectors.
“MNOs and other service providers need to adapt to a rapidly changing business environment,” said Guillaume Lafaix, SVP for Gemalto. “Delivering a combination of security, convenience and efficiency, our Trusted Digital Identity solutions offer a highly flexible approach to accelerating digitalization strategies.”
