More good news from IDEMIA, the world leader in augmented identity ! The group recently announced that it is entering the Japanese bank card market. It will thus provide Japanese financial institutions (issuers, Fintech) with dual bank cards compliant with the JIS2 standard.

Bank cards adapted to the changing needs of consumers

IDEMIA is constantly improving the security of its contactless bank cards and wishes to extend its range to financial institutions around the world. For example, it is developing a range of eco-responsible cards and services called “GREENPAY”.

To meet growing market demand, IDEMIA is expanding its offer in Japan. It has already provided its contactless cards to large issuers like Toyota Finance Corporation or FinTechs like UPSIDER. These cards are certified by Visa, JCB and many other networks.
