Alcatraz AI selected to join Endeavor

Alcatraz AI, a leader in physical security AI technologies was one of six companies selected to join the Endeavor network at the 25th Virtual International Selection Panel (vISP). Endeavor is the leading global community of high-impact entrepreneurs, working to create a multiplier effect by inspiring high-growth entrepreneurs to dream bigger, supporting and investing in them to scale faster, and providing a platform to pay it forward.

The Virtual International Selection Panel is the culmination of a rigorous multi-step selection process to identify high-impact entrepreneurs who demonstrate the potential to leverage Endeavor’s resources and mentorship to create large-scale wealth and jobs and are committed to reinvesting their time and money in their local entrepreneurship ecosystems to help others take off. During the vISP, panelists interviewed a small group of high-caliber entrepreneur candidates about their businesses. Then, in “deliberation rooms,” panelists evaluated the entrepreneurs on their potential for high-impact growth, discussed, and voted unanimously to select the newest Endeavor Entrepreneurs.

“We are extremely excited to have Alcatraz AI, the innovation leader of the physical security world, join the global Endeavor family! We are ready to support the company with our unrivaled network in their global expansion and rapid growth,” commented Simona Nikolova, Entrepreneur Selection and Growth Manager at Endeavor.

As part of Endeavor’s network, Alcatraz AI will gain access to comprehensive, strategic, global support services, including introductions to local and international business mentors, investors, and volunteers from Fortune 500 consulting firms who will help them address key needs. Endeavor Entrepreneurs have had a significant track record of impact, having created more than 3.9 million jobs, generated combined revenues of over $28B, and helped build sustainable growth models in their home countries.

“At Alcatraz AI, we could not be more proud to join Endeavor and their impressive network of innovators,” said Vince Gaydarzhiev, President and Founder of Alcatraz AI. “We look forward to expanding our mission of leveraging facial authentication to make safer spaces possible, now with the support of Endeavor.”

Alcatraz AI has redefined secure access control delivering intelligence at the door to make your face your credential. Using the power of machine learning, Alcatraz AI provides a touchless and autonomous access control solution that lets authorized users enter secured spaces quickly, and prevents those that don’t belong from gaining access. With advanced tailgating detection, no integration needed to existing access control, multiple user enrollment options, and video events at the door – Alcatraz AI is the solution to protect your most critical assets.

Alcatraz AI to showcase security solution at Connect:ID

Alcatraz AI, a leader in physical security technologies, will showcase its state-of-the-art product, the Rock, at Connect:ID (Booth 309). This will be Alcatraz AI’s first time attending the conference, which is taking place at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C. on October 5-6.

Powered by machine learning, Alcatraz AI’s Rock operates autonomously to recognize your face as your credential, creating a seamless interaction between the individual and the Rock. The innovative technology solves the challenge of securing buildings and minimizing friction without impeding the movement of people because of its precise and fast authentication. The Rock also minimizes touchpoints and provides facemask verification to ensure COVID safety. The Rock’s technology is built to work anywhere – in data centers, healthcare facilities, schools and universities, financial institutions, stadiums, and more.

Alcatraz AI’s Rock, which combines advanced AI and 3D sensing technologies that provide facilities with enterprise-grade identity verification, is compliant with ONVIF standards. ONVIF certification allows Alcatraz AI to bridge the gap between access control and video management with a single device. Alcatraz AI’s Rock can function as an ONVIF camera and is certified with Profile S and Profile T to provide IP-based video streaming.

The Rock has the unique ability to effectively mitigate tailgating by detecting breaches in real-time and then preventing them. The solution can be configured to send an alert to the access control system (ACS) when an unauthorized user follows an authenticated user through a door. Alcatraz provides data on tailgating hotspots to support employers’ policy and stop breaches to ultimately modify physical security and access control.

“Our technologies provide a seamless solution to the most pressing security issues companies and organizations are facing today,” said Tina D’Agostin, CEO of Alcatraz AI. “As this is our first time participating in Connect:ID, we are looking forward to showcasing the unique capabilities of the Alcatraz AI’s access control technology to Connect:ID attendees.”

Alcatraz AI announces partnership with Switched On Space

Alcatraz AI, the leader in physical security technologies, has announced today that they are partnering with Switched On Space, an information technology and services company, to bring autonomous access control to international markets. This new strategic partnership with Switched On Space will provide greater exposure and expand Alcatraz AI’s facial authentication solutions to create safe spaces in buildings to the growing UK and Europe markets.

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

“Switched on Space provides the best-in-class technology and top-class security solutions to their clients in the UK  and Europe. Alcatraz AI will now achieve a broader customer base in the UK and European market,” said Tina D’Agostin, CEO of Alcatraz AI. “We are thrilled to work with Switched On Space, as they are as passionate as we are about utilizing new technologies to create smart buildings.”
