Protect Your Data
While protecting your data online, you should also make sure that the physical heart of your IT system, your data and server rooms, are fully access controlled, so that only authorized personal can enter. In addition, to secure log-in procedures, firewalls, anti-spyware and anti-viruses, you should be able to keep your valuable data doubly protected.
Effective and comprehensive access control turns your premises into a higher-risk prospect from the criminals view point. Provided the system extends to back doors, fire escapes, garage doors, elevators and all other possible points of entry, criminals will find it difficult to gain entry without being detected, and so will look elsewhere. If your system is linked to an alarm notifying security personal on site, then your business becomes even less of an attractive proposition for them.
Increase Control and Monitoring entrance and egress
The main advantage to access control is that you, as a business owner, and your personal have full control over who enters and exits the property, and when. The staff has the special authorization that enables them to enter and exit in line with company regulations, while visitors need permission and sign-in procedures to gain access. A good access system, in combination with vigilant staff and security personal especially at reception, ensures that only the people you want on your premises are allowed in.
Reduce Internal Theft
As much as you don’t like to think about it, the risk of theft by one of more of your staff members is something you always need to guard against. Electronic access gives you control over who is allowed into which areas of your premises. You can restrict access to valuable stock and equipment. You can then monitor these areas to see if anyone attempts to gain access.
