Access control is a crucial part of an organization's physical and virtual security.
The modern business owner or technology-minded executive has a responsibility to find solutions that enhance the security of their company’s assets. Whether your business needs a system to manage its employees access to data, or solutions to improve its physical security, the IT professionals at S I M Technology can design and deploy a comprehensive, end-to-end security solution to fit your needs.
What is Access Control?
Access control is a manner of limiting access to any system, whether it be physical or virtual for the express purpose of maintaining security of that system.
There are many types of access control. They range from a person physically standing guard at a door to sophisticated biometric interfaces and beyond. Many organizations understand the need to limit access, due to the presence of sensitive data and other assets.
For the average small or medium-sized business, the kind of access control needed is often to protect some form of virtual infrastructure solution; but, in some aspects it also provides solutions to improve physical security. S I M Technology’s technicians deliver businesses the technology expertise they are searching for to help them make sense of today’s digital landscape.
How Access Control Works
To begin to implement a dedicated access control system, S I M Technology first needs to understand what assets your business plans to protect. Different assets require different solutions, although they largely work the same way.
Essentially, all users are given a dedicated key. It could be a physical key, it could be a piece of software on a smartphone or fob, it could even be a physical feature of the authorized person (fingerprint, retina, etc.) that ultimately grants the user access. Administrators determine if a person requires access and grants permission for entry for those they determine need it. This provides both security from theft and user error, while simultaneously providing access logs that allow administrators to determine which users accessed what access panel when.
Simply put, a dedicated access control platform protects assets.
Today’s most forward-thinking business owners and executives understand just how much time is saved and how many headaches are avoided by integrating custom-designed security solutions with access control. S I M Technology can work with you to deliver the right solution for your organization.
