Smart cards are now ubiquitous in our everyday lives. We pay for goods using credit/debit cards, we use mobile phones containing SIM cards and we pay on public transport using Oyster cards (or similar). These are just a few examples of how smart cards are used to provide valuable services to the public.
Organisations utilize smart cards for access control - both physical access control to buildings and digital access control to systems and resources.
Governments utilize smart cards for solutions such as digital taxation and identity cards.
Smart cards can run custom applications on-board the card. They offer security and flexibility to vendors wishing to deploy smart card-based systems.
Our cards are Java cards meaning they run a lightweight Java-based operating system supporting the execution of custom applications packaged as applets. Certified to the international standards of Java Card and Global Platform you can rely on our cards for stability and security.
