By Carl Ford November 16, 2012

Singapore will be the home of the latest rollout by Standard Chartered Bank using Gemalto’s Ezio Display Card, which extends your security strategy by including tokens and authentication methods.

As you can see above the card, which was jointly developed with Nagra ID, includes a small LCD display giving a way to provide a one-time password for transaction signing and e-banking. The goal of these cards is to be the primary choice for the cards in your wallets. The card is in line with the Monetary Authority of Singapore’s requirements for customers who make use of online banking to utilize new security tokens that are enhanced with transaction signing ability from January 2013. In the near future, Standard Chartered is also looking to include contactless functionalities in the token cards.

The introduction of Gemalto’s Ezio onCard PAD & PAY is a tangible example of how the bank converts technological possibility into market-leading capability,” said Trevor Haeger, CIO, Standard Chartered Bank. “We are relentlessly improving our security to be ahead of the game and ensure that our customers continue to enjoy banking safely though our outstanding internet and mobile channels.”
