NYSS, Alcatraz Partner to Increase Touchless Access Control Offerings along East Coast

Alcatraz has partnered with New York Security Solutions, Inc. (NYSS) to sell and market the Alcatraz Rock platform in the East Coast market. 

“At NYSS, we take pride in the effort we put into choosing a security product to recommend to our clients and as technology geeks we have been very impressed with the Alcatraz Rock platform and its ability to deliver touchless access control using artificial intelligence, 3D, and machine learning,” said Cody Flood, NYSS vice president of sales and marketing. “The touchless aspect is particularly relevant in a post-COVID society – we need to be able to deliver a reliable access control product that at the very least minimizes touchpoints.”

Alcatraz chief revenue officer Tina D’Agostin said Alcatraz is grateful that high-quality integrators like NYSS are embracing the Rock platform and adding it to their solution portfolios. “NYSS has an excellent reputation for delivering comprehensive security solutions and we’re excited to be able to provide them with the Alcatraz Rock platform which we know will enrich their access control offerings and add value,” D’Agostin said.

Headquartered in New York City, NYSS designs and develops comprehensive security solutions for a variety of clients in the New York area and beyond. They have installed more than 20,000 access-controlled points and 60,000 video devices for more than 100 organizations. NYSS is a Managed Security Technology Provider (MSTP) which demonstrates their commitment to emphasizing only the best technology is included in their product offerings.

Alcatraz offers a touchless and secure physical access control platform that works with any access control system. It replaces or augments badging as a credential with facial recognition, 3D sensing, and artificial intelligence to enable highly secure and frictionless entry into physical locations. The Rock uses passive 3D sensing, machine learning for increased security, and accurate tailgating detection, while intelligently enrolling employees as they are badging in, eliminating the headaches associated with traditional onboarding. A newly added feature provides a mask detection mode – the Mask Enforcer – to help businesses comply with government-mandated facemasks.
