Banking & Payment

All Banking & Payment sales activities for German customers are coordinated in our Munich office. This is being  managed in close collaboration with our R&D department in the same location and with our personalization centre close to Stuttgart.

With the acquisition of Gemalto in April 2019, Thales is now also a supplier of banking cards and a service provider for card personalization with more than 25 years of experience in this market. In Germany are appr. 145 million Girocards, formerly known as EC cards, and credit cards in the field. Thales is not only an important supplier of banking cards in Germany but is also active on a worldwide level. The goal is to further expand the business in financial services and to develop and sell new technologies such as innovative card bodies and payment solutions.


Expertise in Identity & Biometrics

R&D for the future

The Sales & Marketing team in Munich is your contact for a wide range of products and solutions in the field of  identity and biometric solutions, preferably for the public sector. These are identities whether as passport,  identity card, driving license, tachograph cards, health card or as digital identity on the mobile phone. In addition, technologies and products such as biometrics or passport readers and fingerprint scanners together with solutions for the registration of identities or border control and eGovernment solutions complete the package from the creation to the use of identities. We rely on internationally standardized and locally developed as well as security certified (e.g. by the German BSI) components and the competence in the implementation together with our customers. Major smart card projects in Germany have been part of the Thales portfolio for many years, including the production of more than 30 million health cards. For the realization of projects of this magnitude, our company has a modern and efficient personalization center at the headquarters of Thales in Ditzingen.

Banking & Payment Services

In the Munich high-security zone, an experienced R&D team has been working for over 20 years on the development of smart card operating systems and Java applets for the banking (BPS) and identification (IBS) sectors. For example, the electronic health card including certification by the BSI according to Common Criteria was developed here.

SECCOS (Secure Chip Card Operating System) has been developed and maintained here for the German banking market since the very beginning. SECCOS is the basis for secure payment transactions on almost all German debit and credit cards. In addition to correct functionality, the security of the product is the top priority for every project. For product approval, an intensive security check is always carried out in an external laboratory, whereby both software-based attacks and, for example, attacks with laser beams are carried out.

Digital transformation is reshaping industries as more and more organizations look to build their businesses on the cloud, data and software.
