Access control systems restrict unauthorized users’ access to facilities and the secure areas and equipment within a facility. Common forms of access control systems include PINs, lock-and-key mechanisms and card readers. However, all come with an inherent security risk: PINs, keys and cards can be lost or stolen or shared with others and provide limited security for any organization whether it requires tight security or just needs to know who is in the facility.
Biometric access control systems, on the other hand, employ the use of technologies that rely on physical or behavioral characteristics to differentiate between authorized and unauthorized users, and grant access accordingly. These systems offer an alternative security solution that makes it more challenging for unauthorized users to gain access to facilities, restricted information or materials. Biometric access control systems are suitable for facilities: ranging from those that require tight security measures such as banks, to large international organizations and small mom and pop companies.
Download our eBook for a look at the advantages of biometric access control systems over traditional PIN, key or card systems. In it, we highlight three industries – manufacturing, banking, and food processing – where facility management increasingly prefers biometric security measures over traditional PIN, lock-and-key and access card systems.
