Gemalto (News - Alert) (Euronext NL0000400653 GTO), the world leader in digital
security, and Standard Chartered Bank, a leading financial institution,
announce the first large scale rollout of a display card solution in
Singapore. Jointly developed with Nagra ID Security, Gemalto's Ezio
onCard PAD & PAY is an innovative two-in-one device
with a small LCD display combining EMV payment, One-time Password (OTP)
and transaction signing for e-banking. As part of an end-to-end
offering, Gemalto is also providing the authentication server, card
personalization, fulfillment and project implementation for Standard
Chartered Bank. Card personalization in particular is performed in
Gemalto's own certified banking facilities, providing the same high
level of security as handling EMV payment cards.
Ezio onCard PAD & PAY combines Gemalto's expertise in both
payment cards and tokens, cumulating in the creation of an innovative
converged product that brings a richer experience to Standard Chartered
Bank's customers. Available in three configurations - standalone token
card, token card with ATM cash withdrawal, or token card with ATM cash
withdrawal and credit card - users can select their preferred option.
This promotes card usage and top-of-wallet consideration.
Standard Chartered is a leading international banking group with a
strong presence in Asia, Africa and the Middle East. Available to all
its customers, the card is launche in Singapore and is in line with the
Monetary Authority of Singapore's requirements for customers who make
use of online banking to utilize new security tokens that are enhanced
with Transaction Signing ability from January 2013. In the near future,
Standard Chartered is also looking to include contactless
functionalities in the token cards.
"At Standard Chartered, our number one priority is to safeguard our
customers' interests. The introduction of Gemalto's Ezio onCard PAD &
PAY is a tangible example of how the bank converts technological
possibility into market-leading capability," said Trevor Haeger,
Chief Information Officer, Standard Chartered Bank. "We are
