    Alcatraz AI Adds Tailgating Security to Its Robust Facial Authentication Solution

    REDWOOD CITY, CA (May 6, 2021) Alcatraz AI, the developer of secure, frictionless access control solutions, announced today that its Alcatraz AI Rock solution now has tailgating security capabilities that can detect and prevent door tailgating at entrances and in a variety of industries. 


    The Alcatraz AI Rock solution detects door tailgating by identifying, in real-time, an individual as he/she approaches an entrance and identifies whether the individual has been authenticated. If an unauthorized user follows an authenticated user through a door, the tailgating security solution will identify that user as a tailgater, and an alert is sent and logged into the access control system, along with a still picture of the unauthorized person. 


    To prevent tailgating, the tailgating security solution can be configured to send an alert to the access control system in the form of a unique credential that can only give access to authorized users. In this way, it can provide data on door tailgating hotspots, and ultimately, modify physical security and access control, and adjust employee behavior. 


    “Physical security is a top priority for companies that want to protect their staff, offices, and property, and [providing tailgating security] is one way to ensure physical security,” said Tina D’Agostin, CEO of Alcatraz AI. “Our access control solution gives security teams the ability to not only detect and respond to tailgating in real-time but to prevent it, as well. We’re excited to share this solution with security teams.”
