Amsterdam, 21 March 2018 - Gemalto (Euronext NL0000400653 GTO), the world leader in digital security, today announced the launch of two new laser-personalized innovations designed to further increase the security of official identity documents.
These advanced security features are available immediately as additional options in the Gemalto Color Laser Shield* secure identity solutions range and are supported by major brands of personalization equipment.
Color laser engraving is the most secure way to personalize documents. It has won the trust of progressive government bodies worldwide and is gaining further momentum in 2018.
In addition to color portraits of exceptional sharpness secured by four color lasers, the two new security features can now be applied to the polycarbonate documents such as national ID cards, passports, healthcare cards, driver's licenses, voting and resident permit cards.
The new enhancements are highly sophisticated but simple to adopt by the government agents in the field. They are designed to counter forgery while remaining easy for officials to verify their authenticity, thereby providing greater convenience for legitimate holders.
These two new features are part of our ongoing commitment to constant improvements in the security of our products. The Gemalto Color Laser Shield technology launched in 2014, also known as Color in PC, will see further innovations in the very near future," said Youzec Kurp senior vice president ID Document Solutions, Government Business Unit, for Gemalto. "Our investments and proven expertise in this high technology domain allow us to be an innovation leader, providing superior security features for ID and passport design that are unique in the market. They offer the best tools against fraud and creative answers to the evolving demands of government authorities and high security printers."
