A robust access control security system is a prerequisite for securing physical assets and ensuring the safety of the people who populate your organization’s physical structures. But with new technologies emerging at a rapid pace, keeping up with the challenges of access control security system deployment and management can be difficult. More than ever, your organization needs a seasoned technology partner that understands how to design and integrate the necessary access control security system components into your enterprise environment.
Components of Access Control Security Systems
SDI is a proven leader in access control security system technology. Our end-to-end solutions and services equip large, enterprise organizations with the tools they need to properly secure facilities and critical assets. Featuring the latest innovations in access control technology, SDI solutions eliminate the headaches and hassles typically associated with complex technology initiatives.
Our work across a range of industries has equipped us with important insights about the optimization of access control technology in enterprises and public sector organizations that need to secure geographically diverse assets and facilities. It has also given us an understanding of several key elements that are commonly found in world-class access control security systems.
Biometric Components. Biometric components significantly improve the integrity of access control security systems and introduce an added dimension to secure access. Leveraging unique, physical characteristics like fingerprints, biometric technology is often used in combination with other security components (e.g. card and PIN access). The result is a highly secure physical environment with multiple levels of access controls – a perfect solution for organizations in which security breaches simply aren’t an option.
Smart Card Access. Today’s Smart Card access control security system technology is a cut above legacy card access solutions. Unlike their predecessors, Smart Cards have the capability to store data and run simple security programs, enhancing your organization’s ability to manage access to sensitive areas and assets. When used in combination with other access control solutions, Smart Cards deliver an unparalleled level of security for large organizations that require the most advanced security solutions on the market.
Identity Management Solutions. Identity management equips access control security systems with identity authentication technology across applications ranging from physical access to secure network log-in. Offering a comprehensive view of activities across multiple systems, identity management solutions allow your organization to rapidly identify suspicious behaviors across physical and IT security environments.
Scalability of Access Control Security Systems
When selecting a technology vendor for access control security systems, it’s important to look for a provider with a track record of successful implementations at organizations with a comparable user base. In many cases, solutions and processes that work for an organization with hundreds of unique users simply do not translate to organizations with thousands or tens of thousands of users.
SDI’s access control security system solutions are designed for large organizations with mission-critical security requirements. Our biometrics solutions and other system components are equipped to manage 500,000 or more unique users – ensuring that your organization has the best available access control security system technology, regardless of the size of your user base.
