The Vienna, Virginia-headquartered private equity firm said Monday Infinite ID will offer fingerprinting and background screening services to federal, state and local government customers.
Tom Van Schuyler, who founded PrintScan in 1999, has been named CEO at the new identity recognition and authentication company, which also completed the acquisition of PrintScan, an identify management software provider that focuses on fingerprint technology development.
Enlightenment Capital also invested in Laxton Group, a provider of proprietary software and hardware systems for use in areas including election, border security, citizen identity and law enforcement.
“Laxton and Infinite ID fit squarely in Enlightenment’s effort to support businesses that provide critical and high-reliability solutions to promote security, protect organizational missions, and empower government and commercial clients,” said Thomas Young, vice president at Enlightenment Capital.
Lyle Laxton, founder and CEO of Laxton, commented that Enlightenment Capital’s expertise will help the company drive growth through mergers and acquisitions and strategic efforts.
