Ricardo Gómez, Director of the Operations, Technology and Service Channels Area at WiZink added: “IDEMIA has become our partner in which we have entrusted to offer our customers the best innovative and secure payment options, such as Samsung Pay. His experience in the management of projects related to security in the use of credit cards has been an essential factor for us.”
OT-Morpho is now IDEMIA, the global leader in trusted identities for an increasingly digital world, with the ambition to empower citizens and consumers alike to interact, pay, connect, travel and vote in ways that are now possible in a connected environment.
Securing our identity has become mission critical in the world we live in today. By standing for Augmented Identity, we reinvent the way we think, produce, use and protect this asset, whether for individuals or for objects. We ensure privacy and trust as well as guarantee secure, authenticated and verifiable transactions for international clients from Financial, Telecom, Identity, Public security and IoT sectors.
With close to $3bn in revenues, IDEMIA is the result of the coming together of OT (Oberthur Technologies) and Safran Identity & Security (Morpho). This new company counts 14,000 employees of more than 80 nationalities and serves clients in 180 countries.
