Last year, the companies worked together to successfully implement ICAO Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) solutions for a number of complex e-ID and e-passport projects in the region of Latin America.

The ICAO PKI projects were implemented in a relatively short-time frame thanks to the experienced team of dedicated experts who provided technical support as part of the implementation and go-live. “With X Infotech, Opteryx found a partner who is both dedicated and flexible, and even more importantly, with whom it is easy to speak,” says Alex Martin, Business development manager at Opteryx. “This dialogue and synchronization of goals is key in developing capbilities and optimizing implementations for our clients.
