What they’re saying

We could tell you about our products, but we’d rather our customers did.

“We were using another electronic solution. It didn’t work all the time, and we were in jeopardy of CIP-006-R2 possible violations because of it. We had to reinstate manual logging—with all its pain points—as a backup to prevent possible violations. We found Gatekeeper and deployed it enterprise-wide. We’re completely confident that the system will always be available.”

— Former WECC Auditor, CIP Team + Corporate Security Group

“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.”

— Senior Governance + Risk Analyst, NERC/CIP Program Management

“Gatekeeper elevated our [CIP-006] compliance posture by providing real-time data on individuals accessing our regulated areas. It helps us keep a pulse on all visitors.”
