Access control systems are prime targets for modern-day hackers
Like many commercial organizations in Houston, TX, your business likely uses an access control system to monitor entries/exits, control building access, and reduce the risk of unauthorized building entry. But what happens if the system that’s supposedly safeguarding your employees, staff and data falls under attack?
Door entry systems have increasingly become the targets of hackers launching sophisticated cyberattacks. Unfortunately, access control systems have multiple points of vulnerability where hackers can strike. Read our blog below to learn four simple steps you can take to reduce common vulnerabilities and keep your buildings safe.
Don’t Get Boxed in with Your Security
When it comes to technology, both hardware and software, there tend to be two models: proprietary and open systems. The proprietary model is not necessarily a bad one; it depends on the technology's interoperability with other solutions. For example, if you are reading this blog on an iPhone, iPad, or Macintosh computer, you are on a proprietary platform.
Is a proprietary platform like Apple a negative? It depends on your objectives. Apple platforms have a vast range of applications and support standards that make them interoperable with many other devices, making them hugely popular for both personal and business use. However, if you want to upgrade Apple hardware over time – such as adding memory – you see that with all but a couple of exceptions, that is nearly impossible with their current products.
When it comes to vital security systems like access control for your Corpus Christi, TX facilities, it pays to look for systems that don't lock you into proprietary hardware and software. Unlike general-purpose computing platforms (like Apple and Microsoft) that may be proprietary but have incorporated extensive interoperability and standards, specific-purpose solutions don't always take an open approach. Let's look at three ways open architectures for access control can keep your access control options more…open.
Your business surveillance can’t be effective without proper system design and installation
Commercial surveillance is an essential component of comprehensive building security for businesses of all sizes. Surveillance helps reduce the risk of theft and crime occurring on your property, but it’s only effective when you have the components of your system designed and installed correctly.
