Alcatraz, Plurilock, and Argus close biometrics distribution and sales partnerships for access control
It is an eventful week for biometric applications in the security industry, with Alcatraz, Plurilock, and Argus all closing deals aimed at expanding their offerings.
The new agreements will see the firms extend their biometric solutions for either physical or logical access control to new markets.
Alcatraz Rock added to PACE Solutions Portfolio
The Alcatraz Rock autonomous access control platform has been added to PACE Security’s solutions portfolio.
PACE is a security integration and systems design firm, which partnered with Alcatraz because of the latter company’s biometric security capabilities.
“We are excited to have PACE embrace Alcatraz Rock and its ability to deliver access control via facial authentication,” commented Alcatraz Chief Revenue Officer Tina D’Agostin.
The CRO also confirmed the company has already tested the Rock platform in different scenarios, including an installation in Martin Luther King, Jr., Community Hospital in Los Angeles.
The Rock is a touchless physical access control platform replacing or augmenting badging via facial recognition, 3D sensing, and artificial intelligence.

The firm announced on Tuesday it has retained an outsourced federal sales agency, Government Sales Specialists (GSS).
The continuation of the partnership will enable Plurilock to further its existing federal government processes, assets, and relationships. The company’s continuous authentication solution uses machine learning and behavioral biometrics.
Following the renewal of the collaboration, Plurilock technology will be now used by GSS to enhance security across the civil, defense, and intelligence sectors of the United States Federal Government.
