OT-Morpho becomes IDEMIA
October 2017, News, Access Control & Identity Management

The result of the merger of Oberthur Technologies (OT) and Safran Identity & Security (Morpho), the OT-Morpho Group has became IDEMIA.

At an event that brought together nearly 2 000 guests at the Seine Musicale (an iconic cultural venue in the west of Paris, France), Didier Lamouche, chairman and CEO of OT-Morpho, officially renamed the group IDEMIA.

The group has been renamed IDEMIA in reference to powerful terms: identity, idea and the Latin word ‘idem’, reflecting its mission to guarantee everyone a safer world, thanks to its expertise in trusted identities.

This event provided an opportunity to discover all of the group’s latest products. These include the automated air passenger boarding process, the new generation biometric payment card, and embedded security systems to equip the connected cars of tomorrow.

“Our future will be built through innovation and disruption which will revolutionise our daily lives. Our vision when we merged OT and Morpho was to build a new offer capable of revisiting the world of digital security. And this is what the creation of IDEMIA has achieved. Thanks to our talented people and the solutions they invent, citizens and consumers can now connect, interact, exchange, pay, travel or even vote in total confidence, drawing on the benefits of a connected world,” explained Lamouche.

“The accomplishment of this promise is what we call ‘augmented identity’. It is about using the biometric characteristics of each person as a unique signature of individual identity, thus facilitating exchanges. It fosters confidentiality and trust and guarantees secure, authenticated and verifiable transactions. This is a decisive step towards a more frictionless, safer world.”
