Alcatraz AI Names Security Industry Vet Josh Jackson as Regional Vice President, Strategic Partnerships

Jackson joins the company after serving as regional vice president of RightCrowd Software

Alcatraz AI, developer of secure frictionless access control platforms, has named security industry veteran Josh Jackson as Regional Vice President, Strategic Partnerships. 

Based in Florida, Jackson will oversee sales, business development, customer service, marketing, and operations for Alcatraz AI.

“We’re excited to have a security industry pro lead our East Coast sales operations as we continue to build our innovative frictionless access control platforms,” said Alcatraz AI Chief Executive Officer and Founder Vince Gaydarzhiev. “Josh Jackson has earned a high level of respect throughout his career with leading roles with international security companies and professional organizations. His colleagues consistently report that he is hard-working, dedicated, and is very skilled at relaying complex technical processes like those we are developing.”

Josh comes to Alcatraz AI with a wealth of security industry experience. He most recently served as Regional Vice President North America with RightCrowd Software. After focusing primarily on video surveillance he joined STANLEY Security as Director of Global Product Integration leading those efforts in their product business. He has served as Director of Strategic Accounts for Pelco by Schneider Electric and helped start the EMEA Center of Excellence while on assignment in Paris. Josh took a role in the Physical Security Interoperability Alliance (PSIA) global security consortium trying to move away from proprietary systems and into the open standards world. He was a member of the team that took the PLAI (Physical Logical Access Interoperability) specification from an idea on a whiteboard to a commercially available solution. He served as a board member for seven years and vice chairman for three of those years.   

“As a longtime security industry professional, I’ve witnessed many impressive technological advances, but access control in physical security has not been innovating at a pace consistent with the demands of digital transformation. With Alcatraz AI, there is a product to change the way access control ties into the site access experience strategies of many enterprise organizations adding frictionless access, but without compromising the validation and identity assurance required. That is why I am thrilled to join Alcatraz AI to lead the way in getting the offering to market,” said Jackson. “The future of access control is in the ability to deliver security without compromising on friction and Alcatraz AI has developed an incredible product that will improve access and overall security for a variety of vertical markets."
