Almiria Networks offers access control systems and solutions, Access control is a method of restricting access to sensitive data. Only those that have had their identity verified can access company data through an access control gateway.

To secure a facility, organizations use electronic access control systems that rely on user credentials, access card readers, auditing and reports to track employee access to restricted business locations and proprietary areas, such as data centers. Some of these systems incorporate access control panels to restrict entry to rooms and buildings, as well as alarms and lockdown capabilities, to prevent unauthorized access or operations.

The access control system is an extremely effective deterrent. It provides a very efficient means of granting entry, while maintaining a high level of building and property security. By preventing just one serious loss incident per year, an access control system more than pays for itself.

In addition to asset protection, it provides assurance that employees will be protected. The system allows entry to only authorised individuals and keeps unwelcome intruders out, by restricting individual movement and controlling who is allowed entry to specific areas at specific times. The access control system not only restricts who can go where at certain times of the day and night, it also provides an audit trail of the times that individuals are accessing facilities. Business managers can easily find out who was in a specific area at the exact time that an incident occurred.

An access control system also eliminates problems associated with mechanical key and lock systems, such as the time and cost of replacing keys when an employee’s contract is terminated, the cost of duplicate keys, lost keys, tracking who has the keys, and worrying about easy-to-duplicate keys landing up in the wrong hands.
