HID Global, a worldwide provider of trusted identity solutions, announced that it has completed the acquisition of the international identity solutions business of De La Rue, the world’s commercial issuer of banknotes and passports.

The De La Rue business will be merged with HID’s citizen identity solutions portfolio, broadening HID Global’s leadership position, extending its capabilities to scale and assemble government-issued citizen IDs, and expanding the value delivered to customers.

Identity solutions business

“HID Global and the De La Rue international identity solutions business share the common goal of helping governments fulfill their e-government initiatives today and in the future by converging physical and digital identities to increase efficiency, security and flexibility,” said Stefan Widing, President and CEO, HID Global.

HID’s identification solutions can be found in sixty percent of government-issued electronic identity projects

“The acquisition sets the stage for HID to leverage the decades-long relationships De La Rue has had as a prime citizen ID supplier providing HID’s innovative solutions to governments seeking to modernise. From making it possible for citizens to use cellphone IDs with their smartphones in everyday life to providing travelers with a more secure and convenient passport for border crossing, HID is transforming the citizen experience.”

Electronic security features

Today, HID Global’s citizen identification solutions can be found in sixty percent of all government-issued electronic identity projects around the world. HID delivers complete, end-to-end system solutions that meet governmental requirements for national IDs, passports, foreign resident IDs, driver licenses, vehicle registration and other programs.

De La Rue’s direct relationships with ministries of the interior, immigration departments, police departments, and numerous other government entities/agencies will enhance HID’s ability to provide customers with a broader suite of offerings that include mobile IDs, automated verification capabilities, and e-passports with advanced physical and electronic security features.

Data analysis services

The addition of the De La Rue citizen ID business also extends HID’s capabilities to assemble secure ID documents from end to end in world-class facilities.  It will create new opportunities to apply its design excellence, data analysis services/consultancy, and proven software and systems–including civil registry and vital statistics (CRVS)–to HID’s citizen ID portfolio.
