Biometric security firms Cross Match and DigitalPersona have officially merged, making the one company the largest independent provider of biometric management solutions.
The new company has business interests in providing security measures for law enforcements, government, as well as the retail sector.
Rich Agostinelli is the new CEO of the company:
“Biometrics is now widely accepted as a critical component of effective security systems for logical and physical access control, and is rapidly expanding from its roots in law enforcement, military and civil ID programs, to broader applications ranging from microfinance to mobile commerce to e-passports. This merger positions us perfectly to capitalize on these opportunities.”
