P@PR (People at Potential Risk)

P@PR (People at Potential Risk) is an A.I. monitoring tool designed to proactively monitor and prevent any potential security or safety issues caused by employees, contractors and vendors. It provides an environmental threat intelligence feed and assesses the risk levels that can impact a company’s critical human resources. Receive alerts about any type of deviation in normal behavior by your employees, contractors and vendors (e.g., drop in credit score, unexpected use of a USB drive, unauthorized access of systems that are not typically accessed, emails being sent outside of the company, drop in work ethic, etc.)


SureSafe is an enterprise social, mobile application for people to learn, manage, and share their surrounding risks in real time with trusted peers (e.g., environmental events, civil unrest, planned activities, etc.). It creates a close-knit social community where the group can connect and learn each other’s risk with helpful explanations that could help avoid or mitigate impact. XGCG uses geo-fencing as a method to secure the team or community members and generate security alerts based on members security configuration.

SureSafe ID

SureSafe ID is a blockchain-based, secure and dynamic ID verification management system, with access level validation and identity risk. Depending on the client’s needs, the product maintains past verification information for future use and insights (e.g., background screenings, clearance, access history, credentials, risk score, etc.). Taking full advantage of blockchain’s immutability and traceability, we enable multi-verifications by the users’ social connections. The blockchain-based verification enhances user’s identity and risk scores in real time that does not exist in traditional background screening.
