Your Access Control Holds a Treasure

Qognify introduces ACI – Access Control Insights solution, extending the value of existing Access Control Systems

Qognify, the leader in big data solutions for physical security and operations, today announced, that it will introduce ACI, an Access Control Insights solution, during ISC West 2018. Using machine learning data analytics, Qognify ACI uses smart pattern recognition to transform data from access control systems into information that can be used to improve security and operations.

Access Control Systems (ACS) are a central component in security management, holding a wealth of data with significant operational impact. Qognify ACI reveal the information within this data to answer and address daily security challenges.    

Is a certain unauthorised access a mistake, or an attempted fraud? Is a door-open-too-long an innocent overlook, or a threat from internal/external sources?  Is a card holder access late at night a regular course of business or a suspicious action? Should this person be accessing this location so frequently?

Being able to effectively differentiate one from the other can be sometimes impossible and certainly critical in a busy operations or security control center.

Qognify ACI utilises machine learning data analytics to extend the value of investment made by organisations in their Access Control Systems:

  • Card holders’ activity information is monitored and analysed continuously, yielding individual behaviour patterns.
  • Consequently, out-of-the-ordinary behaviors are reported via alerts.
  • Business logic rules are utilised for improved response to critical alarms.

With Qognify ACI, organisations will benefit from smart pattern recognition, a reduction in fines (where access breaches are regulated and penalised), improved safety and security through an insightful sensor inspection plan and adherence to compliance with organisational security plans.

A strong example of the potential benefit is shared by an international airport in the United States which is deploying Qognify’ ACI:

“According to TSA’s regulations, in every Door-Forced-Open case, airports have three minutes to arrive to the location, 12 minutes to report and 15 mins to close the incident.”

“After that, TSA must be notified of a security breach. While it may sound very simple to use the mass notification system, in reality, out of dozens of door breaches per day, there are about 10% of where the case isn’t closed within these 15 minutes. We sometimes just get too busy and miss the mark. Every time this happens, an investigation with the TSA is opened, and the airport might be fined.”

“Having a solution that will enable us to address this specific issue, can save the Airport hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines annually.”

Qognify’s ACI is the first among a range of packaged solutions to be launched. These are pre-designed and pre-configured bundles designed to address common and specific operational or security-related challenges, using the intelligent capabilities of the market-leading Qognify portfolio, including Situator, OIC (Operational Intelligence Center) VisionHub and video analytics.

Qognify Packaged Solutions provide organisations with access to powerful capabilities, with minimal installation, faster deployment, and short time to value. This enables organisations to accelerate their adoption of targeted solutions addressed to solve a specific challenge while having the reassurance that the solution can scale at any time, as it demonstrates clear return-on-investment and value to the business.

Qognify’s ACI will be introduced in booth 30056 at ISC West 2018, taking place April 11-13 at Sands Expo, Las Vegas, NV. For more information visit: www.iscwest.com
