Restricted Area Access Control

How Computer Vision technology can help keep confidentiality and security.

The Challenge

The company used an unmanned access control system that was not based on biometrics, so non-authorized personnel had access to the restricted access area with methods such as tailgating. These continuous security events put the confidentiality and security of the information and projects developed in the restricted access area at stake.

Sigma’s facial recognition product is highly accurate and does not require the employees to register into the system but can use the employees’ ID photos.

The Solution

Controlling access to a restricted access area was a major issue for this company, which had over 20,000 employees in its campus. Registration in the facial recognition system was done using the existing employee photos, so it was not a burden for the company and the employees.
Sigma’s product prevented tailgating from happening since the system was able to identify all the employees. If a non-authorized person approaches the door, the door would not open even if that person is accompanied by an authorized person. If any non-authorized person manages to pass through the door, the system sends an alert to Security with the offender identification.
Sigma’s product also keeps a record with information about the personnel who has entered and exited the restricted access area.

The Outcome

Sigma’s facial recognition product resolved the security breaches that the previous unmanned access control system had and helped identify offenders whether they were employees or visitors.
