Access Control Systems – Commercial Security – Swipe Cards – Flexible Options
Identifying The Right Access Control System For Your Needs
Access controls are very useful devices in handling the security of the buildings or any other structures. Generally access control involves the process of identifying the person and allowing the full or limited access to the premises, resources, devices or information.
Aussie Group Security specialise in Access Control systems that allow total control to you and your business. In essence, you dictate who, when, how and where people can gain access to a certain area of your business. To restrict, limit or allow access control over a single area or a wide area spread across several zones these automatic control systems can be installed.
We can install control systems using different devices for your specific purpose like card readers that require scanning of the card. Fingerprint and retina scanners that scan the finger and retina’s unique characteristics. RFID that reads radio chips even from a distance and without line of sight for identification. Keypads where user ID and password typing is needed. There is also hand geometry recognition and balanced magnetic switches.
Security Using Biometric Systems To Control Access
In place of access cards to control access of people to a restricted area, biometric systems use characteristics that are unique to each person. In this category the most widely used is fingerprint recognition devices whereas the user places the finger on an electronic reader and the biometrics access control device identifies the unique fingerprint characteristic.
After recognizing the fingerprint the person is allowed to the controlled area or denied entry. This means only the authorized users get access. The problem associated with the loaned, lost or stolen access cards are eliminated by this type of biometric based commercial security system, preventing unauthorized access.
Access Card Reader
Similar to a credit card in size, there is card access system which is also called proximity card system. An electronic card reader generally placed before the entry point identifies the person when the card is scanned through it.
The card reader is able to identify the card from reading the information on the chip placed in the card. This identification in turn is used to allow or deny entry to the controlled area which can be based on the level, date and time. This entry or denial is also recorded by the card readers for future references or reports.
Protecting Your Confidentiality & Integrity
It has to be kept in mind all the time that the purpose of these processes and installed devices is to maintain and protect the integrity and confidentiality of the information, resources and systems in a facility. If any of these objectives can not be maintained then there is going to be breach in security.
What About Staff Changes In Your Organisation?
Simultaneously the access control system should not deny access to the authorized people in accessing the facility, manipulating or modifying the data. In the case of rule based system, access to the system as well as information is allowed depending on the earlier defined and configured rules.
Such rules in turn allow the end users access to specific networks, IP addresses, domains or host systems. With this even if the employee changes position within the organization, there is no need to reconfigure the authentication credential of the person.
