REDWOOD CITY, CA (February 24, 2021) National systems integrator, IES Communications, LLC, a subsidiary of IES Holdings, Inc. (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.

“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,” said IES Vice President of Sales and Marketing Gilbert Romo.

Headquartered in Tempe, Arizona, 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 offers a touchless and secure physical access control solution that works with any access control system. The Rock 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 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 mask detection feature – the Mask Enforcer – provides a mask detection mode to help businesses comply with government-mandated facemasks.
