New Alcatraz AI and VTI Security Partnership Promotes Industry Adoption of Facial Authentication Technology

Systems integrator VTI Security partners with Alcatraz AI to add the Alcatraz Rock autonomous access control solution to its product offerings. This partnership will no doubt introduce modern facial authentication technology to a wider, more diverse market.

The Alcatraz AI Rock is a frictionless, touchless access control solution that uses artificial intelligence to verify those interacting with the system. This innovative technology employs a technique known as one-to-few matching, meaning the user’s privacy is protected during the authentication process. Organizations looking to implement biometric access control can now trust that VTI is prepared to offer a solution that won’t compromise on security, privacy, mobility, and flexibility.

“We often meet with clients who love the idea of biometric authentication, but don’t love the idea of their photo being stored in a database,” said Josh Cummings, vice president of technology at VTI Security. “The Rock is the perfect solution to ease their fears while still being easy to implement and use.”

Along with security installation services, VTI Security also offers a wide range of services that can enhance the Alcatraz user experience. With hosted access control, dedicated project management, and preventative maintenance offerings, users can rely on the VTI team every step of the way. This holistic approach also caters to either of Alcatraz’s platform hosting options: cloud or on-site solutions.

“It is clear that VTI is committed to providing exceptional service from beginning to end while also addressing the client’s needs of today and tomorrow,” said Tina D’Agostin, CEO of Alcatraz. “We look forward to the advancement of secure facial authentication in the industry and are confident that VTI Security can help us with this mission.”
