Telos Corp. acquires Alabama biometric software company
Diamond Fortress Technologies makes touchless fingerprinting software
Ashburn-based cybersecurity firm Telos Corp. has acquired Alabama-based biometric software company Diamond Fortress Technologies Inc., Telos announced Monday.
Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
The acquisition adds patents to Telos’ biometric and digital identity intellectual property. Telos will integrate DFT’s ONYX software into its platform. ONYX is a touchless fingerprinting software that uses a device’s camera to capture the user’s fingerprint.
Telos CEO and Chairman John Wood said in a statement, “We believe the acquisition of this patented touchless fingerprinting technology will allow us to eliminate much of the friction involved in biometrics data gathering for identity and access management and to better serve our growing customer base at both the enterprise and consumer levels.”
Telos has hired seven current DFT employees.
Telos reported $179.9 million in 2020 revenue, up from $159.2 million in 2019.
