Swipe card systems and Access control

We live in the era of digital kingdoms and computer slaves, who make human life much easier, but not necessarily more secure. Just think how simple it had been back within the Stone Age when probably the sole valuable data was on a big stone, where to steal or modify such a thing would require a tremendous human strength. Today, it’s easier than ever to commit a crime. While some individuals are still attempting to rob banks and sell drugs personally, many found a more comfortable way. In the privacy of their own home, they compensate for sleepless nights and the absence of social Interactions.

Now that Organisational employees are conscious of the risks, aware of any suspicious activities, and outsiders are kept securely at a distance, does it mean the valuable data is safe? Not really. Now we’d like to stress that only authorised people can access data and hope that they are doing not shall cause any harm. We need to make sure access is easy but properly secured from physical access to a building to retrieve necessary information in the workplace.

The goal of the access system in Melbourne is to attenuate the safety risk of unauthorised access to physical and logical systems. Access control might be a fundamental component of security compliance programs that ensures security technology and access control policies are in situ to guard tip, like customer information. Most organisations have infrastructure and procedures that limit access to networks, computer systems, applications, files, and sensitive data, like personally identifiable information (PII) and property.

Access control systems are complex and can be challenging to manage in dynamic IT conditions that involve on-premises systems and cloud services. After some high-profile breaches, technology vendors have shifted distance from single sign-on (SSO) systems to unified access management, which offers access controls for on-premise systems and cloud services.

 

Components of Access Control: Proper Authentication, authorisation, Accountability are the important components of access control, a process that relies on its components to enforce security. We start with identifying users by authenticating them, making sure they are who they claim they are. If we are successful in these steps, the authorisation component checks what levels of information users are allowed to access, what tasks they can execute and then permits a connection to the system. Another important role is played by the accountability part of access control. It monitors and records all activities performed by an authenticated user.

Swipe card and restricted card access has become increasingly popular due to higher security entry, no additional costs for lost keys and instant access. There are a range of systems available, from the stand alone keypad that allows quick access to your front entry door, gate or automatic door. To the full history and monitoring of a site, using hundreds of doors and remote access to keep you constantly in the loop of whats happening on site.

The latest system available, made in New Zealand by ICT, is called the Protege WX. This system offers, state of the art Alarm and Swipe card system. With the ability to check on users (people) entering site, changing codes and access with the entire site montiored by state of the art software that is all free!

To create a more complex system the Server grade GX, enables CCTV monitoring and is suitable on large scales sites for shopping centres, airports and councils. For more information contact Aron today on (03) 8658 4086

Increase ease of access for employees: An access system allows you to “set and forget” who has access to every area of your business. Once you give the authorisation, an employee can access all the areas they have to urge their jobs done. With the scan of a key card or input of a PIN, the worker can get to wherever they have with ease.

Save money and energy: With access control systems, you save money on locks and security staff. An access system can verify a person’s identity without the necessity of a watchman. Access control systems can also be integrated with lighting, warming, and cooling systems. Lights can activate when there are people in a room and can shut off once they leave. You can also adjust temperatures when nobody is in an area to save money on energy costs.

Keep track of who coming and who going: An access control gives you data on who enters and exits a building or room and when. You can ensure people are working once they are alleged to be. If theft or an accident occurs, you recognise exactly who accessed a selected area at the time of the incident.

Protect against unknown visitors: A large company creates a chance for visitors to travel undetected. One of the advantages of using access control systems is that unauthorised people cannot get in. Since entryways need credentials before they unlock, only those you’ve given credentials to access the area. With this technique, you’ll make certain everyone in your building is meant to be there, whether you recognise them or not.
