The partnership will result in a wide range of online and offline access control products based on the secure LEGIC advant technology and respond to the worldwide market’s growing demand for LEGIC applications.

Agreeing on the partnership, SALTO expands its product portfolio by the integration of the flexible LEGIC smart card technology.
