'off the shelf' financial e-commerce solutions

Oberthur Card Systems, a world leader in the provision of smart cards, electronic transaction solutions and identity systems, has today announced a partnership to deliver secure 'off the shelf' e-commerce solutions to banks and financial institutions with SmartTrust, a leading provider of comprehensive security and service management solutions for mobile and Internet e-services.

"The demand for secure e-business solutions means financial customers are looking to us to provide complete 'off the shelf' packages incorporating the same level of security which they have come to expect from more tailored solutions," explains Marc Bertin, Director of E-Business for Oberthur Card Systems. "A partnership with SmartTrust, whose reputation in secure e-services software is excellent, further reinforces Oberthur's #1 position in the field of e-business card solutions."

In response to the growing demand for transaction security solutions Oberthur will use SmartTrust's technology to bring secure digital signature and smart card functionality to a comprehensive range of e-commerce solutions. One of the first packages to be released will be an Identrus-ready solution. Designed to offer financial institutions fast-track entry to the Identrus network, the solution will allow banks to offer trust services to members looking for secure global e-commerce.

"By enabling such ready-to-go packages we are moving commercially strong security solutions into the mass-market; this is key to the continuing growth of e-commerce and the success of services such as those provided by Identrus," adds Anders Hoffmann, Vice President Sales, Americas, at Sonera SmartTrust Ltd. "Our software allows financial organizations to benefit not only from the Identrus network, but the ability to offer secure banking solutions to customers across a variety of channels - from PCs to mobile phones."
