Fernando Loret de Mola, commercial director of SIASA says that that “this new alliance with an industry leader such as Iris ID Systems, definitely strengthens our portfolio of biometric solutions with innovative, reliable, high technology products that respond to the security needs of companies at a time when the use of contactless biometrics has become an ally for the safe return to work, and users require these solutions to protect their collaborators, customers and visitors.”
Thales tackles regional physical security market

“Thales is a security company completely immersed in the identity verification and high security technology market, which has developed physical security solutions providing confidence to processes in both private and public institutions; the recent integration of brands such as Gemalto has expanded its scope towards biometric solutions,” comments Thales Business Development & Channels IBS (Identity and Biometrics Solutions) Manager Carlos Romero. “Working together with SIASA will allow us to bring our security, digital identity and biometrics solutions to companies in the region, hand in hand with a specialist in the industry.”
