The All-In-One Platform That Eliminates Risk at Every Door and Every Gate in Your Power Utility

A Centralized Physical-Entry Platform That
Prevents Risk + Elevates Awareness

Some want to call it a visitor management solution, but Gatekeeper is so much more. Built on a CIP compliance framework, it’s a powerful risk-reduction platform that drastically reduces the safety, security, and compliance risk that occurs when visitors, contractors, and employees enter your BES facilities.

Built specifically for the power utility industry, Gatekeeper is turnkey, and it includes all the appliances, software, monitoring, and support you need to validate and enforce any requirement you have. It immediately eliminates risk at every location where it’s installed and will immediately consolidate and elevate your risk awareness. You’ll now know of safety, security, and compliance problems across the enterprise in real time.


With Gatekeeper, You’ll Finally Be Able To…

See Real-time Risk

Stop managing month-old problems. Gatekeeper will immediately shift your risk awareness to real time. You’ll be an enforcement superhero.

Use in Every Location

Industrial-grade hardware that works in generation, transmission, PSP, remote and unmanned sites—oh, and the lobby. Gatekeeper is the only platform built specifically for power utilities.

Stop cip Violations Before They Happen

Built on a NERC-CIP compliance software framework, Gatekeeper will stop violations before they occur. Period.

Automatically Enforce Physical-Entry Requirements

We don’t just log people that enter. We automatically enforce your policies. For safety, security, compliance, and any policy you want to enforce, use Gatekeeper to do so at every door and every gate.

Gatekeeper Enforces Entry Requirements for All These Departments

Most power utilities have a fragmented approach to managing risk at their points of entry. Here, safety, security, and compliance often make decisions in silos and deploy a disconnected technology stack. At this intersection is great risk. Gatekeeper consolidates the physical-entry requirements of every department and drastically pivots your risk matrix. Think security watchlists for contractors, CIP escort requirements for PSPs, COVID-clear requirements for control rooms, and safety-orientation validation for generation sites. All enforced in one platform at every door and gate.

Customer Testimonials

We have a way to manage risk that wasn’t possible before. In the sites Gatekeeper is deployed, I don’t have to worry about. I can’t say the same for the others.


— Enterprise Manager of NERC-CIP Compliance

[Gatekeeper] is so simple to use that I’m sure my 9-year-old could easily use it.


— K. H., Lead IT Analyst, G&C

Folks who forget to log out can’t hide anymore!


— Bill T., Manager, NERC Assurance

These are logs I can actually read!


— Joe F., ECC Supervisor

We moved away from another electronic solution that wasn’t written for the [CIP-006-R2] standard. It wasn’t as effective. We don’t need a backup method [with Gatekeeper]. We’re completely confident that the system will always be available, and the support is exceptional.


— Former WECC Auditor, CIP Team, Corporate Security Group

Gatekeeper will relieve the switching desk of hundreds of time-consuming and distracting phone calls each day. It will allow operators to focus on safety and switching tasks without the constant interruption of calls to check in and out of substations.


— Thomas F., System Operator

We have real-time visibility of people in CIP areas and know about risk right away. I used to have to wait over a month to know what my exposure was. Now we can quickly understand where the problem is and address it immediately.
