Entrust Datacard Delivers High-Security “Instant Issuance as a Service” for Customer Payment Cards

Sponsored by Businesswire

, celebrating 50 years as a leading provider of trusted
identity and secure issuance technology solutions, today announces the
launch of a new cloud-based solution that enables banks to instantly
personalize and activate customer payment cards.

Whether buying coffee or shopping online, consumers expect instant
service and fast delivery. Getting a new debit or credit card, or
replacing a lost or stolen card is no different. Secure instant issuance
allows banks to issue customers a permanent, personalized payment card
on demand. They have access to their card, funds and services, in just a
few minutes, creating a positive customer experience.

“We offer banks the most advanced options for how they want their
financial instant issuance solutions to be delivered, and now
with the most stringent and secure PCI-CP-regulated compliance,” said
Chris Pelletier, senior vice president and general manager of Financial
Instant Issuance (FII) at Entrust Datacard. “Our customers can choose
how they want instant issuance delivered — from self-service to complete
managed services.”

FII technology benefits banks and their consumers. The Entrust Datacard
secure cloud-based offering gives banks an end-to-end solution that can
eliminate the need to invest in costly IT infrastructure and security
compliance for card issuance. Entrust Datacard is the only FII provider
that offers a choice between on-premises and cloud to deliver a
comprehensive menu of services featuring device and fleet management,
on-call support, supplies and help desk management.

Pelletier continued, “We pioneered financial instant issuance before
cloud technology existed. Our comprehensive managed services are now
enhanced by cloud delivery. With twenty cloud customers already signed
on, we’re seeing that our solutions can scale with a bank’s physical and
digital issuance needs.”

The Entrust Datacard instant issuance solution is the only
PCI-CP-compliant cloud offering backed by a Tier III datacenter with
99.982% uptime. We alleviate the burden of customers needing to manage
complex compliance requirements by adhering to the most stringent
security standards in the payment card industry.

Financial instant issuance is available through
Entrust Datacard and delivered through partners to customers worldwide.
