Multos International originated as the smartcard division of Australian company Keycorp Limited, a pioneer in the area of secure, multi-application smartcard technologies, working in the field since 1993. We were among the first organizations to join the nascent open standards groups of both the MULTOS Consortium and the JavaCard Forum in the 90’s, and have subsequently become the world’s prime supplier of MULTOS technology.

In 2008, Gemalto, the world leader in digital security, acquired Keycorp’s smartcard business assets, to create Multos International. In 2019, we became part of the Thales group.
