This robust solution produces compliance-based evidence and forensics needed for real-time risk analysis and audit-ready reporting helping businesses achieve and maintain compliance and mitigate operational risk.

Its touch-screen kiosks with facial recognition and biometric readers validate that the escorts haveall the correct credentials to meet Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) regulatory requirements and ensure that the visit will pass the meticulous review of an audit.
