Thales Digital Identity and Security

Businesses and governments rely on Thales to bring trust to the billions of digital interactions they have with people. Our identity management and data protection technologies help banks exchange funds, people cross borders, energy become smarter and much more. More than 30,000 organisations already rely on Thales solutions to verify the identities of people and things, grant access to digital services, analyse vast quantities of information and encrypt data.

In early 2019, we acquired the international security company, Gemalto and have combined it with our existing digital assets to create a new leader in digital security. Every organisation around the world is in the midst of a digital transformation and stands to benefit from our joint innovations.
