May 9, 2023  By  SP&T Staff

SALTO Systems recently announced the acquisition of TouchByte, a U.K.-based provider focused on facial recognition.

SALTO says the acquisition is a further indication of its commitment to the use of biometric technology in access control. Last year, SALTO acquired Cognitec and will integrate Cognitec’s FaceVACS algorithm into SALTO smart devices, enabling new applications for a range of industries.

“Our acquisition of Touchbyte is a natural step forward in our mission to bring innovative and cutting-edge technology to the access control market,” said Marc Handels, chief technology & innovation officer, SALTO Systems, in a statement. “With our future face recognition solution, we aim to provide our customers with a secure and frictionless way of accessing their buildings and facilities.”
