COLOMBES, France-Thursday, October 19th 2017 [ AETOS Wire ] (BUSINESS WIRE) -- IDEMIA, the global leader in trusted identities for an increasingly digital world, today announced the milestone of 1 million MOTION CODETM online transactions with Société Générale.

After successful testing among more than 500 people in 2016, Société Générale started offering MOTION CODE™ to all their French customers early 2017. In less than 10 months, the results illustrate this incredible co ... Read more »
