Our 2021 secure element portfolio
Thales' secure elements* authenticate every device for secure applications and trusted value-added services.
All our solutions are based on standards and deliver the highest security level to support the most sensitive services.
*A Secure Element (SE) is a tamper-resistant microprocessor-based platform. It acts as a vault. The SE securely hosts applications and stores sensitive data such as the user's credentials.
Thales' SIM cards allow mobile operators (MNOs) to offer their customers a personalized, interoperable and removable platform compliant to the latest and most stringent standards.
Depending on their size, their memory capacity, and functionalities, Thales offers a complete range of SIM cards, tailored following MNOs requirements, from advanced authentication and security (e.g. 5G SIM) to added-value services (e.g. roaming…).
The embedded SIM, aka eSIM (also called embedded UICC) is a new secure element compliant with GSMA specifications and designed to remotely manage multiple mobile network operator subscriptions.
Available in various form factors, either plugged-in or soldered, the eSIM is easy to integrate into any type of device.

Embedded Secure Element
Embedded Secure Element (eSE) is a tamper-proof chip with different sizes and designs, embedded in any mobile devices (e.g. eSE for Samsung smartphones), that makes sure the data are stored in a safe place and information is given to only authorized applications and people.
It is like a personal ID for the end-user and for the device itself. The eSE is multi-applicative (payment, transport, access control, corporate, etc…) and Thales has developed specific software to administrate and update it during the complete life cycle of the devices.

To extend services to newcomers in the mobile ecosystem, such as banks, transport operators, governmental institutionS, Thales has designed a multi-tenant SIM, which is a multi-applicative secure platform.
Customized as a lockbox, it allows each service provider to host securely its services in the advanced SIM card, that can be activated, personalized and managed remotely to make it easy to run revenue and loyalty-building services with absolute confidence.
