Gemalto, Datacard, and Morpho ranked in the top three positions within ABI Research’s latest “Government & Healthcare ID: Smart Card and Legacy Credentials” Competitive Assessment. The assessment consists of 1H 2013 smart card market shares alongside a vendor matrix where by the top smart card and legacy credential ecosystem players were measured against a set of Innovation and Implementation criteria.
Gemalto, ranked in first position, continues to develop innovative solutions to maintain its strong market presence. Most recently it released its identity as a service solution, likely to have an impact on the government ID market as governments increasingly look towards federations to provide secure online identities. Gemalto already has a substantial global reach and penetration with respectively over 25 and 16 e-passport and national ID references to date. Gemalto is now looking to continue its expansion into other fast growing verticals, most notably developing improved solutions for use within the border control market.
Datacard placed in second position. Through its own core business and distribution channels, Datacard has amassed an impressive global reach, penetrating up to 40% of all on-going government ID projects with its solutions. Its latest acquisition, Entrust, will provide Datacard the ability to bring further complementary solutions to its product portfolio including federated identity, mobile ID and extended PKI functionality.
Third position was awarded to Morpho. With an already strong market presence, Morpho is now looking to extend its market reach and product functionality through positioning in the various influencing groups and working alliances. Most recently Morpho joined the OSPT Alliance and the Secure Identity Alliance as it looks toward a future market more focused on multi-application enablement and market convergence.
Research analyst Phil Sealy comments, “An important aspect of this Competitive Assessment was evaluating each vendor’s multi-application, convergence and digitized authentication solutions. Governments are increasingly looking towards the leveraging of credentials already in circulation to enable secure online authentication capabilities for citizen access to various services. This is fast becoming an important aspect within the government ID market as governments will inevitably begin shifting focus in the direction of identity reuse across online platforms and the enablement of more applications, whether that be encompassing transportation, travel, e-purse, social security or welfare applications via ID credentials.”
