Complete convenience for card issuers

Payment cards and similar applications have been around for a long time – and they are as popular as ever. Yet the demands placed on them by consumers and financial institutions have increased dramatically. Today expectations range from measures to protect sensitive information when used offline all the way to support for cost-effective marketing tools for issuers. We meet those expectations. In addition, we deliver industry-leading security for the operating system and applications, as well as for the card or alternative form factor itself.
