Let The Good In, Keep The Bad Out

Newton Security Tailgating and Piggybacking Detection/Prevention

Although nearly all enterprises have security strategies for keeping outsiders from reaching the corporate network, not all organizations realize the dangers from internal threats such as criminals getting into areas of the building where they have access to sensitive information. Badge and biometric security systems alone are not foolproof because most electronic access control systems do not take into account the people that employees allow into the facility, such as when a polite worker holds the door open for the next person. With Newton Security’s T-DAR (Tailgating and Piggybacking Detection/Prevention) system, you won’t have to worry if your employees’ good nature will allow unauthorized individuals to circumvent your security system and gain access to sensitive material.

T-DAR adds 3D stereo machine vision technology to your existing security controls to accurately detect the number of people attempting to enter the secure area. If more than one person at a time attempts to enter the secure location, T-DAR delivers real-time alarm activation and sends event camera playback to central security. Newton Security’s technology is so advanced that it can differentiate between people and carts, parcels, or other objects. T-DAR can be combined with other restrictive devices, such as automatic immigration gates, security revolving doors, portals, and mantrap systems.

By managing the flow of employees, the T-DAR system can decrease the amount of security personnel at secure entrances, exit points, and throughout the building. Additional models are available to enhance your security with extra features such as people counting, direction sensing, waiting line tracking, and time and attendance monitoring. Architectural modifications are not required. T-DAR integrates seamlessly with any existing access control systems.
