Deciphering Access Control Technologies

Building access controls (BAC) include monitoring access to physical spaces such as corporate or start-up offices, multi-tenant spaces, warehouses, or data centers. These controls serve as a critical component of any comprehensive security strategy by safeguarding the things that matter most to your business from unauthorized entry or intrusion.

  • Occupancy Management: Customizable, at-a-glance occupancy tracking for schools, grocery stores, small retailers, bars, and restaurants.
  • Mobile Access and Monitoring: Mobile access solutions for frictionless physical access without the need to present a physical credential.
  • Visitor Management: Manage visitors in multiple facilities, from single high secure rooms to multi-building, multi-location campuses.
  • Employee Credentials: Physical, logical, and converged identification solutions for building and computer access and time/attendance.
  • Data-Enabled Decision Making: Video and data analytics provide real-time intelligence designed to make security operations scalable and smarter.

Leveraging IT Support for Building Access Control Technologies

Traditionally, the deployment and management of building access control technologies have been entrusted to specialized security companies. However, with the evolution of technology and the convergence of IT and physical security, there’s a compelling opportunity for organizations to streamline their security operations by leveraging existing IT infrastructure and expertise.

By entrusting the design, implementation, and support of building access control systems to their Managed IT Service Provider, organizations can achieve several advantages:

  • Cost Efficiency: Consolidating security responsibilities under the purview of IT support can lead to cost savings by eliminating the need for separate security contracts and vendors.
  • Seamless Integration: IT professionals possess the technical acumen to seamlessly integrate building access control technologies with existing IT systems, such as network infrastructure and identity management platforms.
  • Faster Response Times: With IT support readily available, any issues or concerns related to building access controls can be addressed promptly, minimizing downtime and enhancing overall security posture.
  • Holistic Security Approach: By aligning IT and physical security strategies, organizations can adopt a holistic approach to security, ensuring comprehensive protection against both digital and physical threats.

Ignoring the Need for BAC Could Cost Your Business

Neglecting to invest in building access controls and video intelligence exposes organizations to a multitude of risks including unauthorized access to sensitive areas, theft of valuable assets, and compromised safety for employees and visitors. Without proper access control systems in place, organizations face heightened vulnerabilities to physical security breaches, potentially leading to costly data breaches, regulatory violations, and reputational damage.

More than that, not choosing to align your BAC with your IT provider can result in disjointed security measures, gaps in oversight, and inefficient management of access systems.

After all, safeguarding your assets is exactly what your technology support provider is here for. When there’s a lack of alignment, the likelihood of security vulnerabilities, communication breakdowns, and delayed response times to security incidents all increase, and may ultimately compromise the overall security posture of your organization.
