Facial recognition enhanced Visitor Management software delivers frictionless security at check-in

Alert Enterprise Inc., the leading physical-logical security convergence software company, announces the addition of facial recognition technology (“FRT”) to its Visitor Management Kiosk software.

Alert Enterprise Visitor Management Kiosk software with FRT delivers frictionless security to organizations that are looking to improve security and enhance customer experience with a powerful first impression at check-in. The new FRT feature provides fast and accurate on-site identity verification and makes it easy for an organization to add facial image analysis to the check-in process for employees, visitors, contractors, and guests arriving on-site.

If a visitor has checked-in previously to a location and has authorized the Alert Enterprise Visitor Management Kiosk App to capture a photo of their face, the software instantly recognizes them and allows the visitor to bypass the standard registration process. The visitor can then quickly complete check-in by confirming their visit details, providing a signature and printing out their visitor badge.

When combined with Enterprise Guardian software, Visitor Identity Management software with FRT provides a complete physical identity and access management solution for all employee, contractor, vendor and visitor identities from a single source. By leveraging FRT, the system allows organizations to move away from first/last name dependency and can help identify cardholders that may attempt to or have acquired multiple badges. In an upcoming release, the feature will integrate with watch lists to detect people who may try to enter a facility with different names.

“We believe that frictionless secure access is an essential component to the vision of the Intelligent Enterprise,” said Yogesh Ailawadi, Senior Director, Product Management at Alert Enterprise. “As part of our complete physical identity and access management solution, Visitor Management with FRT further enhances corporate security through advanced technology and automated active policy enforcement.”

Designed with GDPR data storage compliance in mind, the new FRT feature ensures that no actual images of faces are stored on client networks, meaning visitor identities remain secure and safe.
