Looks like the first of many mobile solutions. Let's knock out them dinosaurs!

Personally I like the DUO 2FA and Multi-Auth integration with access control. Ideally I want the cloud credential push to be authenticated by a SOC operator or some administrative supervisor, instead of single user push how about multi level push on high security entry or after hour access.

Let's give away more money here on IPVM shall we? Let's say 3 of your employees are entering your building, one badges and then all three walk in, aha tailgating! the nemesis of access control? Not Anymore.

Let's now make a fake company and call it BLEnk first off the employee will need to install the BLEnk phone app available or iOS or Android. Next the three tailgating employees are now enabled to group tailgate as the phone application is aware of the movement and direction of all phone app enabled phones. Once a valid card is read apps communicate the status for a minimum amount of time and create a timestamp transaction. All three employees are now tagged as admits and they do not need to scan their badge, BLEnk confirms and does it for them.

If an employee does not have access and tailgates that employee gets and instant message of the violation as well as a kind CC to his boss or wife.

What if the person does not have the app, does not work for you or is another blue team tard trying to perform his lame penetration tests? No problem, we turn to video analytics to have a person count that is in sync with all the admitted transactions. So 4 people walk into a bar and 3 are admitted and the 4th person tailgater is the unAuth. Then the three people that were admitted all get a notification that a bad guy just entered unauthorized with their party as well as a nice CC to security. As a last resort good old fashioned human awareness, stop letting people in that do not scan a badge, but do not trust humans.

Understand that this type of technology will have some margin of error but if there were BLEnk company 1 and then BLEnk company 2 the technology and accuracy should increase from fierce competition.

I am sure the smart IPVM crowd can look at this application and add, mix or flavor other use cases or scenarios, but hey this is just me rambling again so if you do not like being called a dinosaur let me just PUNCH YOU IN THE MOUTH! BOOM, down you go.

Edit: Boggles my mind that these startup companies happen and do not even resolve old issues with the technology they have. Do they just chase money?
