Alcatraz Rock autonomous access control platform
She adds, “The Alcatraz Rock is just what’s needed for security in general, access control in particular, and during this time when we need to create a touchless experience for our business environments. With the Alcatraz Rock, your face is your badge and that delivers an impressive level of security.”
Alcatraz has changed the way that companies leverage access control systems, by providing a facial authentication solution that leverages 3D, artificial intelligence and analytics to modernise existing access control technology.
Mask Detection feature
Enterprises are choosing to deploy the Alcatraz Rock as their first line of defence against unauthorised access, to deliver effective and secure autonomous access control. Because Alcatraz's platform also detects masks, it has become the perfect post-COVID solution for businesses that want to deliver touchless security in their buildings while observing state and local mask mandates.
