MorphoTrust Achieves Highest Security Certification for Credential Production Facilities
December 16, 2013, Billerica, MA - MorphoTrust USA (Safran), a leading provider of identity solutions and services, has achieved the highest security certification from the North American Security Product Organization (NASPO) for one of its Credential Production sites. This facility is the first ever to receive this certification. The NASPO Class I Certified facility, operating in an undisclosed location in the U.S., is one of several NASPO Certified facilities owned and operated by MorphoTrust that are used to produce U.S. driver licenses and identification cards for state motor vehicle agencies (MVAs).
Given the importance of the driver license as the most commonly used proof-of-identity document in the U.S., many state MVAs have chosen to produce their driver licenses and IDs in highly secure factories that also give them the broadest range of security options and features to incorporate into the card. The production process and credential itself are both highly secure.
NASPO is an American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and International Standards Organization (ISO) accredited security standards developer that provides certifications for all manufacturers and providers of identification documents, labels, cards packaging, materials and technology. Receiving NASPO certification assures that a factory meets Department of Homeland Security guidelines.
"We understand the trust placed in us by our customers and this certification demonstrates MorphoTrust's drive to achieve the absolute highest levels of security in our facilities," said MorphoTrust Chief Security Officer Dennis Kallelis. "We hire the world's top security experts and invest several million dollars each year to ensure MorphoTrust is the United States' most secure and reliable provider of identity solutions and services. Our dedication to complete and total security for customers, personnel, information and the supply chain at every level is what makes MorphoTrust the industry leader."
