Austin September 18, 2018 Ė Gemalto (Euronext NL0000400653 GTO), the world leader in digital security, is providing Georgia's Department of Driver Services (DDS) with a smoother capture and enrollment process along with a secure†polycarbonate driver's license†for enhanced identity protection.
As part of the comprehensive contract, central issuance of the credentials will take place at a newly expanded Gemalto facility in Georgia, strategically located to take advantage of faster delivery times and to bolster the economy through the creation of local jobs.
Gemalto will also implement an advanced enrollment system including photo and signature capture as well as new payment terminals. The all-in-one point of sale and payment terminals enable a combination of a signature pad and payment receipt, speeding up transactions and simplifying the process for a smoother and faster customer experience.
For the credential itself, the State of Georgia selected Gemalto's premium polycarbonate licenses to reduce document forgery and†protect against identity fraud. Polycarbonate's durability increases the longevity of the driver's license and enables the high security engraving of a black-and-white photo. Georgia has also chosen to add Multiple Laser Images (MLIs), a†level one security feature†(visible to the naked eye) where different images such as a portrait, logo, symbol or numbers can be seen depending on the viewing angle, making the license extremely difficult to replicate. The symbolic Georgia peach will also be integrated into the design of the card.
"The State of Georgia is committed to upholding the best customer service experience possible while also protecting our citizens' identities, and Gemalto's innovative products and services are the best option to help us reach that goal."
