January 8, 2018 - 

North African technology integrator GEMADEC and Daon announced that they have formed a strategic partnership for North African and Francophone African countries.

“With its long-standing experience and demonstrated success internationally, we are pleased to add GEMADEC as a strategic partner and offer our biometrics technology to these markets,” said Tom Grissen, CEO, Daon. “Our partnership with GEMADEC will make a significant impact in the financial and public sectors as we work toward expanding our presence in the North African and Francophone African countries.”

GEMADEC has a presence in 22 countries, and has extensive experience in financial and public-sector identity projects, according to the announcement.

“GEMADEC is already working in the field of security and biometrics, supporting the Postal organizations as a trusted third-party in the implementation of a legally valid electronic certificate (PKI) production platform and also offers electronic signature solutions. Today, it will expand its offering with Daon’s IdentityX® platform for convenient and secure authentication,” said Touhami Rabii, CEO, GEMADEC.

Daon’s IdentityX platform was chosen in November by Sri Lanka’s Nations Trust Bank for biometric authentication.
