Physical security has traditionally been viewed as an unsexy and tedious topic that few want to tackle; regardless, everyone knows that safety and security must be adequately addressed. Luckily, the topic of physical security doesn’t necessarily need to inspire passion.
With cutting-edge technology and the Internet of Things revolution, the world of physical security has drastically changed—making your physical office a safe space has never been easier.
What is Access Control?
An important element of your overall security is the control of access to your businesses. Calibre One offers an easy to deploy managed door access control system that can be linked to your Office365 cloud tenancy to allow central control of all your office doors, locks and even elevator access.
Check these advantages of a cloud-based control system:
- Your offices can span cities, states – even countries and allow you to configure access as you need from one cloud control panel.
- Users can access the doors using their smartphones (both apple and android), fobs or swipe cards.
- Manage Your Space Remotely – Run your operation in real time from anywhere, on any device. Kisi’s mobile-friendly dashboard allows you to stay in control 24/7.
Why do we need access control?
The purpose of access control is to provide quick, convenient access control for authorized persons while, at the same time, restricting access for unauthorized people. Beyond the obvious reasons, there are more reasons why access control should play a significant role in your organization:
Some companies need to be compliant with health data regulations (HIPAA) or credit card data regulations (PCI) or even with cyber standards, such as SOC2. The ability to pull compliance reports for access control, on demand, is a huge benefit.
If you have a lot of visitors or clients coming to your space, you might be looking for a welcoming experience at the front door or front desk. Access control not only improves your operations but it’s modern and impressive for visitors to use
IP / Data
If you’re working in a company on expensive products or sensitive data then you definitely want to control and monitor who enters your facility.
