The technologies behind physical access control are constantly evolving. It’s a fast-changing market that can leave end user organisations struggling to keep up. Smart cards still reign supreme, with good reason, but there are also new options today and on the horizon. Customers want to implement the most secure and up-to-date technologies, but constantly adapting their systems to keep up with the pace of change is impractical.
Leveraging access control technologies in a way that both maximises security and makes sense to a company's specific needs requires a careful, coordinated strategy. But the process doesn't have to be overwhelming. In fact, most organisations will find that opportunities to upgrade their physical access control will present themselves during the normal course of business.
