This is something that concerns not just public authorities, private businesses too need to be able to quickly check whether ID documents are authentic.

Solutions & Products

Our Holistic Solution

It takes far more than just smart technologies and solution modules to digitise a company. Instead, a holistic approach is needed that includes all areas of a company.

Secure production

In a global world, efficient production is just as important as secure products. Digital processes can mean significant improvements for both production and products. That being said, digital processes also call for safeguards at the highest level, for instance, for remote maintenance, as well as transparency, for example, in the form of traceable supply chains.

Smartcards & Tokens

In the digitised world of business, it is no longer sufficient to simply perform checks at doors and gates. Access to data, systems and networks, as well as internal and external communications must also be protected. Smartcards, reliable carriers of secure identities, have a key role to play in this scenario.

Reliable document verification

Documents often have to be checked to ensure that they are genuine – not just at borders. In order to avoid misuse, staff at registration offices and private companies have to be able to check both quickly and reliably whether the documents presented are genuine or not.

Compliance management

As a high-security company with government tasks, we not only know about security standards, we are also experts when it comes to compliance with legal regulations in national and international business transactions. Find out more about our compliance management services.
