Our society is engulfed in social media, from Facebook to Twitter to YouTube and all the rest. Among other benefits, social media provides an immediate and accessible form of communication. They say that social media is changing everything in our society, so we wondered what specific impact social media might have on the security marketplace. We asked this week’s Expert Panel Roundtable: What role can social media play in the security marketplace and/or as a tool to promote better security in general?
Our panellists offer plenty of great ideas about how social media can be used in the context of security, and great examples of ways it is being used today. Among other things, more of us are depending on social media smart phone apps as a source of information, providing new levels of immediacy that dovetail well into security, specifically in areas of emergency notification. Another useful element of social media is the ability to provide feedback about a company and its products. Good companies know the critical value of feedback and want as much of it as they can get.
This white paper discusses what you need to know in preparation to deploy a mobile access solution. Using a mobile device to gain access to buildings is not only about solving a particular problem; it's also about doing things better.
Confidence and education in the use of contactless applications and technologies, such as Near Field Communications (NFC) and Bluetooth, are continuously growing. In the era of mobility and cloud computing, companies are increasingly concerned about the security and protection of their physical environment. Correctly implemented, mobile access has the potential to revolutionise the way we open doors.
HID have produced this guide to mobile access configuration to explore the underlying technologies which enable mobile access and discuss what you need to know to implement mobile access control.
