Entrust Datacard adds DuraShield overlay to secure product line

20/11/14

Entrust Datacard has added the Datacard “DuraShield” holographic overlay to their secure supply product line, saying that it offers four times the durability of traditional topcoats.

The DuraShield holographic overlay protects important elements of ID cards using a thin film consisting of layers of unique polymer coatings cured with an ultra violet light, said the firm. Because the overlay extends the life of ID cards up to five years, it reduce the costs of reissuance.

“We are pleased to add the DuraShield holographic overlay offering to our secure supplies portfolio,” said Connell Smith, vice president of desktop and supplies product marketing for Entrust Datacard. “This will enable our customers to issue highly secure ID cards with a multi-year card life.”

Datacard Group and Entrust announced a new joint company name, logo and corporate brand identity of Entrust Datacard at Cartes 2014 earlier this month.

It also announced the signing of a new five-year strategic partner agreement with INTERPOL in November, and launched a new component of its IdentityGuard Cloud Service that consolidates the issuance and management of multipurpose smartcards, USB tokens and mobile smart credentials from the cloud.
