Better Security
Greater Certainty

Regulate the use of smart devices within the workplace to improve all aspects of your business

Technology

Our technology regulates the use of camera and browser functions, encrypted messaging, games and social media, replicating existing controls found in the workplace, such as internal networks and work issued devices. Blackout helps companies protect sensitive data and meet their regulatory obligations by limiting unrecordable communications, ensuring greater use of existing authorised channels of communication. By regulating non-essential smart device functionality, Blackout’s proprietary technology also helps to minimise distractions and improve productivity.

Better Security, Greater Certainty

Upon crossing the designated area’s threshold, registered devices go ‘cold’ – losing unauthorised functionality.

  • Regulate accessible apps
  • Disable camera and recording functionalities
  • Disable encrypted messaging platforms
  • Disable social media platforms and games
  • Limit unrecordable communications

Restricted Zones

Utilising a non-invasive combination of proprietary cutting-edge technologies, Blackout defines restricted areas of the workplace and regulates the smart devices within them. Blackout’s system locates and identifies smart devices in defined areas, ensuring they adhere to the employer’s security and compliance policies. The technology can also have a beneficial impact on workplace productivity by removing the ability for employees to access unauthorised functionality on their smart devices.

Monitoring and Enforcement

Employees within the designated area are limited to regulated and monitored channels of communication.



Improved Productivity

Removing unwarranted distractions in the workplace helps employees to focus on tasks and enables them to be more productive.
