Solution Description

Entrust and Mastercard helped pave the way for how the world pays today. From producing some of the very first modern credit and debit cards to enabling instant issuance from branches and ITMs to enriching digital payments and card controls, our partnership continues to create new opportunities for more secure, seamless transactions globally.

Financial Issuance: Physical Cards
All of Entrust’s financial issuance systems – including the central issuance MX Series and the instant issuance Artista Series systems – are authorized by Mastercard for logo printing. We offer VHD and drop on demand print technologies for Mastercard issuers.

Financial Issuance: Digital Cards
Entrust has been recognized as a Mastercard Engage Digital First Partner. We are one of only a few technology partners providing a digital card solution that enables Mastercard cardholders to move cards into their digital wallets, remotely onboard with a bank, and secure their devices via market-leading security tools.

EMV Certification
Entrust is an approved third-party vendor in the Mastercard Key Management Services Program. This designation allows Entrust to act on behalf of Mastercard issuers to generate the EMV offline certificate request and certificate download as a requirement for all instant financial issuance of contactless cards.

A legacy partnership
Physical card issuance has been core to Entrust and Mastercard’s long-term strategic relationship. Enabling high-volume issuance from the world’s leading central issuers and card bureaus fueled the mass adoption of credit and debit cards. More importantly, the strategic partnership has provided vital innovations – including our digital card solution – enhancing security and reducing friction for consumers, issuers, and merchants.
