Audit Tested

With five years of successful audits, Gatekeeper has been reviewed and accepted by auditors in multiple regions.

Off-the-shelf visitor management solutions, access control systems, and paper logs simply can’t deliver accurate logging or enforce policies. Without feedback, strong controls, and situational awareness, these systems are rife with human performance errors, which is the primary root cause of CIP-006 violations. One of the largest utilities in the U.S. successfully deployed Gatekeeper at its high- and medium-impact sites and saw violations plunge to 0.16%. Learn more about how Gatekeeper can help you automate your visitor management system and drastically reduce your risk.
