We stand for Augmented Identity

An enhanced, adaptable, strengthened and self-sovereign identity that creates a safer world for everyone.

Not long ago, we experienced a new wave of technology that drastically changed our world. Today, the pace of change quickens with each passing moment. We’re shifting from an ownership economy to a services economy, switching from physical documents to electronic ones, moving from in-person to online – all developments that generate a spike in exchanges and new business models involving new sectors, new players, new issues and new threats. Information now travels rapidly around the digitized world, defying boundaries and breaking the traditional codes of security.

Empowering people to enjoy life through Augmented Identity

At IDEMIA, we embrace this new reality and we understand the security concerns that accompany advancement. We analyzed the world around us and reinvented the concept of identity. We call it Augmented Identity – an identity that ensures privacy and trust and guarantees secure, authenticated and verifiable transactions. An identity that is so enhanced, adaptable, strengthened and self-sovereign that it allows us to truly enjoy life – because securing our identity is key to making our world a safer place.

A safer, more streamlined identification

We now use our identity to pay, travel, cross borders, commute every day, have fun, open a bank account, seek medical care and use our connected devices – and this list will only continue to expand in the coming years.

Given the vast range of environments and usages, securing our identity has become vital in the world we live in today for access to the digital economy and society. IDEMIA’s ambition is to provide an identity to any individual on the planet and to secure it. However, we recognize that even the strictest security measures are useless if they complicate usage. They must then be convenient and user-friendly – rooted in what is intrinsic to us, in who we are through biometrics. We also observed that our lifestyles demand a level of continuity never seen before. Indeed, we need our identity to travel with us seamlessly – whether in the physical or digital world or for government or commercial usages.

Only you can be you

Our promise is simple: with our technology and innovations in hand, only you can be you.

In designing our market-leading solutions, we rely on the most physical, natural and authentic verification: the body’s own biometric data. Your identity can be verified with a simple glance or the tap of a finger – which means that your identity cannot be stolen, imitated, jeopardized or corrupted. You are in direct control of your personal information.

We have brought together complementary know-how and technologies that have never been combined before for both the physical and digital era: secured connectivity, secured payments and secured identity management. And with every technological disruption, we adapt to meet the new and evolving security demands of today and tomorrow.
