Production facility expansion for thinlam secure payment card inlays coincides with qualification plan for EAL 5+ certification
KSW Microtec, a supplier of RFID components and inlays for secure cards and documents received the MasterCard certification for its facilities and production process in November 2009.

Following the strategy to offer RFID components and Thinlams for high security applications in the field of eBanking and eGovernment, KSW Microtec further expands its production environment compliant with the EAL 5+ security standard at its headquarters in Dresden.

"The forthcoming EAL5+ certification underlines KSW¹s commitment to the highest security standard," says Carsten Nieland, CTO of KSW Microtec. "Beyond our outstanding experience and innovative technology, customers and partners for ePayment and eGovernment applications benefit from ensured high reliability and security throughout the entire production process at KSW Microtec."
