About the company
Entrust Data Card was founded 50 years ago to address an issue in the payment industry: how to quickly customise a payment card or credential to match market demand. Payment cards were still relatively new at the time, and high-speed customization was required. This market concern was noticed by the founders of Entrust Data Card.
We’ve developed secure links all around the world, including into space. With our card printing and issuing technology, we’ve made it possible to make secure debit and credit card purchases. With our border control solutions, you may travel internationally safely. With our SSL technologies, we’ve created safe online experiences. With our authentication products, we’ve also protected networks and devices.
Entrust Datacard, as a merged firm, was able to bring a combined solution to the government market that allowed for the secure issuing of a physical passport with a chip containing the citizen’s digital identity. This chip contains all of the information found on a physical passport, as well as background information utilised by the worldwide community to verify an individual’s identification.
This integrated solution gives residents an identification that is unique to them as individuals, allowing them to travel freely across borders. For the Internet of Things, Entrust Datacard also provides authentication, connected systems, and secure gateways.
According to the firm, its five success factors are:
1. People- Above all, the organisation believes in its employees and provides them with the necessary resources to fulfil their goals while also empowering them to reach their professional goals.
2. Ownership- Because it is a privately held firm, it has an owner that believes in the company’s long-term growth and is ready to reinvest profits into developing future offers.
3. Global reach— serving over 150 countries from 34 locations across the world—provides a fantastic opportunity to break into a variety of markets.
Diverse customers and markets, as well as a diverse product line, are among the company’s strengths.
The organisation contributes to the worldwide IT platform and society at large by actively participating in a variety of standard groups, such as the Certificate Authority (CA) Browser
Forum. The Cloud Security Alliance, the Industrial Internet Consortium, the Document Security Alliance, the VMWare Mobile Security Alliance, the Secure Technology Alliance, the PCI Security Standards Council, and the FIDO (Fast IDentity Online) Alliance are just a few of the organisations to which the company belongs.
