20 Years in Palm Beach County
Crossmatch is celebrating its twentieth year in business. The assembled group heard about the humble beginning of the company in a local Palm Beach Gardens garage and our quick rise to prominence as a leading identity management and secure authentication provider for governments, law enforcement and business enterprises around the world. A brief overview of our solution offering was provided, followed by a tour of our factory.
We look forward to many more years in Palm Beach County and to providing innovative solutions that solve the identity management challenge for our customers around the world.
