We all know how important security is. You do everything you can to keep your business secure, as do so many others. Despite that, breaches occur. Whether physical or virtual, security can be breached. However, one of the more overlooked factors that can lead to a breach is access control. Access control is critically important to maintaining the integrity of your location. In this blog, we’ll go over some ways that you can improve your access control. Additionally, we’ll touch on how our building access control systems in Anaheim and Orange County can help.
Our Building Access Control Systems in Anaheim
Many companies go to great lengths to ensure that their entrances are secure. However, once someone goes through that checkpoint, they can be effectively lost. No matter how tough the security is at a checkpoint, it’s best to be able to track where the people are inside your location as well. This can be a huge problem when it’s paired with so-called “piggy-backing” or “tailgating.” We may think of tailgating as partying before a sporting event or driving too closely behind someone on the highway, but it’s an all-too-common scenario where someone opens a door at your building, allowing someone else in by accident.
Lost Cards, Keys and More
Losing keycards and keys is a fact of life. No matter how conscientious the employee, no matter how diligently they leave their keycards or keys in the exact same place at home, people do tend to lose them. When that happens, it can compromise your entire system. Even if the keycard is just missing for a while, it can be found by someone else and then cloned/copied or some similar procedure. It may seem like a PIN number or something similar could be a solution here, but those can be stolen or given away as well.
