Ultra Electronics announces that its identity business, headquartered in Weymouth in the UK, has been relaunched as Ultra Electronics ID. Ultra Electronics ID is most widely known for the manufacture and supply of the Magicard line of secure ID card printers, trusted by thousands of organisations throughout the world to issue millions of secure ID credentials every year.

More recently, ID issuance software, secure technology cards and other desktop credentialing solutions have been added to
its portfolio of trusted identity solutions. Ultra’s wider security portfolio includes network security appliances, such as hardware security modules and encryption devices, which are extensively deployed in high-level governmental and military environments to manage credentials and counter cyber-security threats.

Ultra Electronics ID Managing Director, Andy Matko, commented: “The world of identity is changing, with the convergence of logical and physical security, so, by relaunching as Ultra Electronics ID, we are complementing our proven Magicard range of ID card printers with other products. This combination and the addition of software products and technology cards that tie it all together, enables us to bring to market a range of interoperable products that together form trusted identity solutions.”
