Tailgating is one of the biggest issues facing businesses today. For those unfamiliar with tailgating, it occurs when a door is left open long enough for an unauthorized person to enter a property. While seemingly harmless, it can lead to several risks such as property theft, and even violence.
Ed Batchelor, an industry expert in physical security and Regional Director at Guidepost Solutions confirmed the seriousness of tailgating in the workplace saying, “We work closely with the heads of security for many of the Fortune 1000 companies, and tailgating prevention has risen to be one of their top three physical security priorities.”
Our President James Segil wrote an article in Propmodo bringing to light the lack of investment in anti-tailgating technology and pain points of current solutions available.
Thankfully, being on the forefront of innovation in the access control space provides an opportunity to bring an inexpensive and frictionless anti-tailgating solution to the marketplace. Through our integrations with Camio and Density, building owners, landlords, and office managers have the ability to ensure tenant safety in a secure and non-invasive way.
“Working together, we can solve the most looming security issues for buildings and offices. Layering other solutions on top of ours, such as video surveillance or an analytics partner, can even further prevent tailgating from becoming a big liability,” James said.
