More organizations adopting biometrics access control
Organizations need to constantly tackle various physical and online threats to safeguard their surroundings and sensitive data. Such threats could include common vandalism to terrorism. An essential requirement for all organizations is to keep individuals behind or outside closed doors before authorizing them to pass.
Employees may also need to be provided different access levels depending on the type of work they perform in the organization. A janitor will need to have a master key whereas help desk personnel might have less access. Implementing reliable access control mechanism is the key to maintaining a safe working environment.
Traditional methods such as physical keys, access cards or a passcode are highly vulnerable to being lost, stolen or duplicated and thus are becoming redundant in today’s world. Organizations also suffer huge financial losses due to employee time theft and buddy punching. Unethical employees can share cards or passwords among each other which leads to employee time theft.
Organizations can achieve increased security, speed and efficiency by implementing a fingerprint access control system. Fingerprint authentication can also be rapidly integrated into any existing access control system with ready-to-use biometric solution Touch N Go. Access control systems using fingerprint authentication eliminate sharing of key cards or passwords and helps organizations to regulate entry into highly sensitive areas. Fingerprint access control is an affordable solution that enables organizations to manage and administer access on an individual user basis.
