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 passports- 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.”


Visitors to Gemalto’s stand (Hall2 – Stand N° 2J41) at Mobile World Congress 2018 will have the opportunity to see live demonstrations of the company’s ability to capture and verify end user identity credentials and biometrics, swiftly and seamlessly, via multiple channels.
