Software and services: Gemalto’s know-how and field experience mean we are uniquely placed to offer a range of software and services that support our clients in the delivery of digital security solutions to end-users. We also offer our clients a wide range of training, consulting, integration and managed services.

Secure remote management: to ensure that end-users always enjoy up-to-date information and services, our secure server software can connect with our devices when they are in the field and connected to digital networks. For cellphones this is done via Over-the-Air (OTA) platforms. ID badges, banking cards and USB tokens can be updated when they are connected to a computer, often via a smart card reader.
