Entrust, which provides digital security and identification credentials services, is owned by the Quandt family. The Quandt family bought DataCard in 1987. Datacard acquired Entrust in 2013:
“Datacard bought Dallas-based Entrust with its 400 employees in 2013. Two years later, it renamed the merged company Entrust Datacard and moved into a new 375,000-square-foot space in Shakopee.
At the time, the $650 million company, which is owned by Germany’s reclusive Quandt family of BMW fame, set bold plans to become a $1 billion company by 2020 by creating the next generation of technology that secures credit cards and online data.
Entrust Datacard’s growth plans were aided by a swell of data breaches across the retail industry starting in 2013. Hackers accessed the customer data of a host of companies including Target, Neiman Marcus, Sears, Home Depot and JPMorgan Chase. Cybersecurity remains a key concern of corporations today.”
