Gemalto Surpasses 25 Million Smart Card Shipments To U.S. Federal Government

Gemalto recently announced that it has surpassed 25 million smart card-based identity credentials shipped to the U.S. federal government. This total is evenly split between government identity credentials, used for securing the identities of federal government employees and military personnel and for electronic passports, used for protecting the personal information of U.S. citizens traveling abroad.

“Gemalto is honored to be a trusted partner in providing secure identity credentials to over 25 million U.S. citizens, federal employees and military personnel,” said Neville Pattinson, vice president of government affairs with Gemalto North America. “We have worked diligently to ensure Gemalto’s manufacturing, software and services meet the stringent security requirements of the U.S. federal government enabling citizens to obtain secure credentials that are convenient and easy to use. We are proud to be a leading part of an ever evolving identity ecosystem aimed at protecting citizen’s identities and securing the homeland.”

All of Gemalto’s products for the U.S. federal government come from its advanced production facility and service center in Montgomeryville, Penn. The center recently received the Security Assurance Certification from the North American Security Products Organization (NASPO), a voluntary certification further demonstrating Gemalto commitment to providing a secure U.S. based supply chain for identity products.
