4 Signs you should change your Access Control System
Jan 12, 2018 | 1909 Views
Every organization goes through a number of stages in its life span, such as the start-up stage,
growth stage, expansion stage, and the established mature state, and one needs to apply a different
approach at each stage. The security concerns you face are also different at each stage. So, let’s take
a look at the four signs why you should change your Access Control System.
1. Good Growth
When your company is in the expansion stage, you will be hiring 1 to 25000 employees every month.
In such a case, your Access Control System should be able to handle the new recruits without
difficulty. Any delay in providing efficient access control will not only send a bad message to the new
recruits but will also affect work efficiency. If you’re still using Key Cards, it is vital that the new
recruits have the access key cards from the first day itself. However, it is advisable that you install a
scalable Biometric Access Control System to make sure new employees have easy access and at the
same time avoid any security breaches.
2. A break-in has occurred in the past
There are various ways an intruder can break into your facility and the security system should be
able to monitor all the entry points effectively. If your organization has already witnessed a security
breach, you should consider upgrading your security system; your current security system may not
be up to date with recent threats. If you’re still using Keys or Access Key Cards to keep your doors
locked, know that they can be easily duplicated, and are very difficult to backtrack. Biometric Access
Systems are better, and cannot be easily hacked. If you need a professional opinion, consult a
reputed Security Solutions company such as Solus Security Systems and explain your needs and
expectations. Solus Security Systems will surely provide the best solution there exists for you.
3. Using Keys is inefficient and time-consuming
If your company still uses keys to access doors, and you have a hundred doors, you can imagine how
much time is wasted going through all the keys to access one door. Even if the keys are properly
sorted and labelled, and take no more than a minute of your time, a new age Access Control System
can get you through the door within 2 seconds, provided the biometric machine is already setup.
4. Existing Access Control system isn’t up to mark
Key Card Access Systems are no doubt efficient and widely used, but they are quickly being replaced
with newer and more reliable systems. Key Cards are not scalable, aren’t intuitive, do not have the
provision for automatic alerts and notifications, and can be easily hacked. Organizations that
demand high security such as Pharma & R&D Labs, Government & Defence, and Power & Energy
definitely require a proficient Access Control System. Your Access Control System should be able to
counter the threats of the 21st Century, and upgrading to the newest technology has a much better
fighting chance than decade-old technology.
