Networked Access Control
Networked Access Control Systems are those that are controlled using PC programming. They offer convenience and flexibility not available in a stand-alone system. With a hard-wired access control system, you can program cards from the host computer allowing or denying access to a door. Doors can be released allowing immediate access remotely. The networked access control system allows administrators to designate and manage a security network set apart from the primary business network. This allows both networks to run parallel to one another but independent. This eliminates issues such as bandwidth consumption and system incompatibility while effortlessly integrating with existing network infrastructures and security applications.
The networked access control system can be accessed remotely via LAN or internet connection. Hard wired access control systems also offer multi-site control and easily integrate with video, photo ID badging, elevator controls, and parking gate controls to name a few.
Advantages of Networked Access Control Systems:
- Enables easy identification and isolation of non-compliant computers
- Assesses computer compliance proactively prior to network access
- Responds rapidly to new, unforeseen threats using custom applications
- Defines security policies
- Provides assessment options for managed and unmanaged computers
- Enhances ROI of existing security applications and network infrastructure
