We are very optimistic regarding Pakistan’s economic prospects and will continue to be a key player in providing digital security solutions in this market”, said Eric Duforest – Executive Vice-President for Financial Institutions activities at IDEMIA.
OT-Morpho is now IDEMIA, the global leader in trusted identities for an increasingly digital world, with the ambition to empower citizens and consumers alike to interact, pay, connect, travel and vote in ways that are now possible in a connected environment.
