Access Control

Today the world of access control offers many levels of security and options for the user. We install simple keypads to fully networked systems using the latest smartphone and Bluetooth technology. We can offer all this on one platform with our other management solutions.

What is access control?

In the fields of physical security and information security, access control (AC) is the selective restriction of access to a place or other resource. Permission to access a resource is called authorisation.

 

What are the different types of access control?

 

There are two main types of access control: physical and logical

 

  •  Physical access control limits access to buildings, yards, rooms and physical assets
  •  Logical access control limits connections to computer networks, system files and data

 

What is an Access Control List?

 

An access control list, with respect to a computer file system, is a list of permissions attached to an object. An ACL specifies which users or system processes are granted access to objects, as well as what operations are allowed on given objects.

 

What type of access control can I have?

With current technology access control methods are not restricted to traditional cards, fobs or keypads. We can now use mobile phones, fingerprints and number plates for example.

 

Can I have something simple?

Yes!  We cover all project types, and much will depend on the level of security required for your site. We work with you to satisfy the level of security and budget.
