Systems integrator IES Communications selected the access control solution to leverage feature sets such as hygienic, facial authentication.

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. — Systems integrator IES Communications, a subsidiary of IES Holdings (NASDAQ: IESC), has added the Alcatraz Rock autonomous access control solution to its security technology portfolio.

IES Communications has selected the Alcatraz Rock to leverage the latest in biometrics — facial authentication — which is more secure and more hygienic, as it reduces touchpoints, according to an announcement.

“IES is always striving to bring safe new ways to utilize cutting-edge security solutions to its customers. With the implementation of Alcatraz biometrics products, IES continues to design solutions for your environment that will secure your peace of mind,” says IES Vice President of Sales and Marketing Gilbert Romo.

Based in Tempe, Ariz., with 21 locations throughout the United States, IES Communications is a leading national technology infrastructure architect that delivers a comprehensive approach with a strong emphasis on client relationships and continuous innovation.

“Alcatraz is excited to partner with IES Communications to deliver autonomous access control. IES has a great reputation for delivering comprehensive and reliable security solutions, and we know that the Rock will be an important addition to their portfolio,” said Alcatraz Chief Revenue Officer Tina D’Agostin.

Alcatraz, based here, offers a touchless and secure physical access control solution that is said to work with any access control system. The Rock replaces or augments badging as a credential with facial recognition, 3D sensing and artificial intelligence (AI) to enable highly secure and frictionless entry into physical locations.

The solution uses machine learning for increased security and accurate tailgating detection while intelligently enrolling employees as they are badging in, eliminating issues associated with traditional onboarding, according to the announcement. A mask detection feature — the Mask Enforcer — provides a mask detection mode to help businesses comply with government-mandated facemasks.
