Boon Edam will be featuring all its touchless security entrances that enable security professionals to deter, detect and prevent unauthorized entry at their facilities. Each entrance product will be fully integrated with third-party touchless access control technologies that are available on the market today.
The following solutions will be on display in Boon Edamâ€™s booth:
NEW Speedlane Compact Optical Turnstile: This new turnstile solution was created out of a market need for a premium quality, swinging barrier turnstile with a small footprint â€“ making it ideal for building retrofits. The Speedlane Compact maintains the same level of tailgating deterrence and detection of its larger turnstile counterparts while offering easy installation and integration with access technologies. The Compact will include an HID card reader installed inside the cabinet.
Lifeline Speedlane Swing Optical Turnstile with Lifeline Boost Access Control Pedestal: This slim, swinging optical turnstile will feature a unique, white powder coated finish and mid-height glass barriers for tailgating detection. The turnstile will be integrated with Boon Edamâ€™s Boost pedestal, which is specially designed to complement the aesthetics of the Lifeline optical turnstile series and house virtually any access technology inside. The Boost will include the latest version of Essexâ€™s credential card reader, the iRox-T, which now features Bluetooth and OSDP capabilities that expand HID Globalâ€™s Mobile Access solutions.
Tourlock 180 Security Revolving Door: The unmanned security entrance of choice for the Fortune 500, the Tourlock provides the highest level of bidirectional traffic throughput while preventing unauthorized entry. The Tourlock in Boon Edamâ€™s booth will include StereoVisionÂ® piggybacking detection technology and an AMAG Symmetry card reader to demonstrate the combination of fast throughput with high security.
Circlelock Solo Security Mantrap Portal: Offering the highest level of security available in an entrance, the Circlelock security portal uses StereoVisionÂ® technology to prevent intrusion into the most sensitive locations, such as data centers and executive suites. The portal will be configured to demonstrate two-factor authentication: an AMAG Symmetry card reader on the outside of the portal conducts the initial authorization, while facial recognition technology provides instant authentication inside the portal: the secure, edge-based facial authentication access control device by Alcatraz AI, called the Rock, ensures only the right person can enter.

Vector Flow Ushers in New Era of Data-Driven Physical Security Automation and Intelligence | #TpromoCom | Industry’s First AI-Powered Platform Automates Key Physical Security Processes (lrg) https://bit.ly/389IwLH
In its formal debut to the physical and cyber-physical security market today, Vector Flow launches the industry’s first AI-powered, data-centric Physical Security Automation Platform and also announces its Series A funding of $9.2M from Silicon Valley’s premium venture firms, led by Mayfield Fund with participation from Foundation Capital. Vector Flow’s security platform derives intelligence from physical security data by creating domain specific AI and data-centric models to automate major security functions related to Physical Identity and Access Operations, SOC Automation and Cyber-Physical Security defense.
“As a people first investor, I was impressed by the innovation and rigor that repeat entrepreneurs Ajay and Vik brought to solving the physical cyber security problem for enterprises,” said Navin Chaddha, Mayfield Managing Director and Vector Flow board member. “By delivering the industry’s first AI-powered physical security automation platform, Vector Flow is solving a big and critical problem, that is protecting CEOs from personal liability for cyber-physical security incidents, something that Gartner has predicted could affect 75% of CEOs by 2024. I look forward to watching Vector Flow grow into a leader who delivers ROI and peace of mind to enterprises.”
“Vector Flow fills a tremendous void in the physical and cyber-physical security space with the industry’s first powerful and innovative AI-enabled platform that aggregates both structured and unstructured data from myriad systems, devices, logs, and journals. The platform performs real-time analysis to detect anomalies, trends and KPIs, and provides actionable insights, automated remedies and processes,” said Ajay Jain, President & CEO of Vector Flow, Inc. “Physical security industry is plagued with legacy disjointed applications, independent hardware, data stores and custom scripts that work in silo creating inefficiencies and security gaps. A benchmark in data-driven security intelligence, the Vector Flow platform enables new levels of automation driving operational efficiencies and significantly reducing corporate risks and costs. In the post pandemic era, the current human-laden physical security world will quickly adopt digital transformation, touchless, and autonomous operations to rely on data to streamline operational processes and fill security gaps.”
The Vector Flow platform is built on a foundation of advanced AI algorithms capable of processing and analyzing vast amounts of data from otherwise disparate security systems, data stores and input devices. The platform comes with application designer studio and a workbench which can be used by the customer and the systems integrator partner to extend any application running on the Vector Flow platform or to create a completely new application utilizing the platform’s machine learning (ML) framework and designer tools without writing any code. This functionality extends the usefulness of any application as business processes change.
Three categories of solutions run on the new Vector Flow platform:
1. Physical Workforce Identity Access Management (PIAM) which streamlines identity on/off boarding processes, physical access provisioning, access audits, compliance to regulations and risks analysis. Applications include:
