In June, Entrust Datacard hosted the VISION 2019 Conference: Defining the future of security in digital, identity and payments. The event fostered collaboration between the world's leading experts in cybersecurity, encryption, access and payments. In celebration of Entrust Datacard's 50th anniversary, the event featured innovative thinking and partnerships that will help fuel the future of identity.

The VISION conference welcomed attendees from 71 countries around the globe and hosted 200 owners, principals and top sales leaders from our global partner organizations.

The Entrust Datacard Partner of the Year Awards recognized all segments of our business. The winners were determined based on their previous year's performance in a number of categories, including innovation, disruption, forecasting, and growth. We're very proud of all of our partners and would like to thank each of them for being a vital part of Entrust Datacard's next 50 years.
