    Alcatraz AI Partners with RFI to offer the Alcatraz Rock Facial Authentication Solution to its Growing Customer Base

    Redwood City, CA., August 3, 2021 – Alcatraz AI, a developer of frictionless access control technology, and RFI Communications and Security, a security system integrator, announced today a partnership to bring frictionless identity verification to a wider market. This new strategic partnership will pair RFI’s wide customer base with Alcatraz’s modern artificial intelligence products.

    Alcatraz AI’s facial authentication solution combines advanced AI and 3D sensing technologies that provide facilities with enterprise-grade identity verification needed to create secure spaces. Its state-of-the-art security features include touchless access, multi-factor authentication, and intelligent tailgating detection and prevention. Its access control solution, the Rock, effectively detects tailgating and sends “real-time alerts”, if an unauthorized person enters and sends real-time notifications to ACS/VMS. 

    “RFI is a leader of technical innovation, and we are looking forward to partnering with them to bring facial authentication to their customer base,” said Tina D’ Agostin, CEO of Alcatraz AI. “By utilizing the Alcatraz AI Rock, we will work alongside RFI to continue their mission of optimizing security and safety solutions for their customers.”
