Gemalto is the global leader in digital security that focuses on two core technologies – Digital Identification and Data Protection. These solutions counter the two major targets of cyberattacks, identity theft and unencrypted data. As daily lifestyles become more digital and interaction with online services become frequent, there has been an exponential amount of personal data online. While this creates countless opportunities for service providers, it is also threatened by the growing number of data breaches.

With 35 research and software development centres and clients in 180 countries, Gemalto brings trust to the world’s digital transformation by giving data owners more control by combining Digital Identity and Data Protection across the entire digital service lifecycle.
