Alcatraz AI’s Updates Facial Recognition Solution

Alcatraz AI, a leader in autonomous access control solutions, announces today the addition of webbased mobile enrollment and privacy consent management to its flagship facial authentication product the Rock. Organizations worldwide can eliminate friction from the access control registration process by enabling secure mass or individual enrollment of people such as new or current employees and visitors to enroll from anywhere in seconds, through their own mobile device or tablet.

Privacy consent management provides an option for the user to opt in or out of the use of their facial biometric data, protecting their privacy and helping enterprises remain compliant with the latest privacy frameworks and regulations.

“Alcatraz AI is transforming the way people enter buildings and secure areas by making access frictionless and more secure, while also protecting user privacy,” said Tina D’Agostin, CEO of Alcatraz AI. “Two of the biggest challenges to the adoption of facial biometrics in the enterprise has been the burden of enrollment and the concern over privacy. With Privacy Consent Management we have created a simple opt-in process which allows our customers to communicate clearly with end users the benefits of facial authentication and how their personal data will be used and managed. Alcatraz AI Mobile Enrollment with Privacy Consent Management reduces the cost and complexity of the entire process and protects privacy by enabling corporate compliance with privacy laws and regulations such as GDPR, BIPA and CCPA; and ultimately creates a more secure environment.”

Enrolling a new employee into any access control system often takes 15-20 minutes as part of the onboarding process. For large organizations with dozens of new employees every day, it can mean hours of lost productivity. Alcatraz AI’s web-based mobile enrollment enables administrators to send a link or QR code to any new employee, allowing them to enroll in the organization’s access control system before their first day, providing a seamless onboarding experience.

Alcatraz AI Privacy Consent Management allows companies to send their privacy policies and consent forms directly to individual employees so they can read, understand and opt in or out of the use of their biometric data and understand the purposes for which their biometric data is collected and how that data are safeguarded, as well as control over how their biometric data are used.

In addition to privacy consent management, the Rock provides a range of tools that can be configured to aid in achieving compliance with any combination of the growing patchwork of laws and regulations that govern the collection and use of biometric data, including non-access user management, real-time event log monitoring, customizable data retention schedules, and hard data deletes.

Mobile enrollment and privacy consent management will be available in the second quarter to all Alcatraz AI hardware-as-a-service customers deploying in the cloud. Privacy consent management will be available as an option to customers using Mobile Enrollment. Alcatraz AI will showcase the Rock at ISC West, taking place March 28-31, in Las Vegas. Attendees can book a demo at the show or stop by booth #30075 to learn more.
