The convergence of IT security and physical access control
Legacy access control relies on a user presenting an ID badge to gain entry into a building, and once inside, using static passwords to authenticate to IT resources. Given the nature of today’s Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) and all the internal risks associated with Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) adoption, these methods of securing access are insufficient. Organisations require the ability to better control access and employ strong authentication throughout their infrastructure as part of their multi-layered security strategy.
