Access control is, in reality, an everyday phenomenon. A lock on a car door is essentially a form of access control. A PIN on an ATM system at a bank is another means of access control. The possession of access control is of prime importance when persons seek to secure important, confidential, or sensitive information and equipment.
Access Control, the word defines itself, i.e. controlling the access rights. Access can be controlled for a room, a portion of the room, an entire building or to a specific device, etc. There are various ways to control the access; the most conventional way is via a lock and key. Locks and keys do not restrict the complete access and over the time it becomes a tedious affair in case multiple people need to access the restricted zone, even if it at different timings. Even then when keys are lost or stolen, the inconvenience and expense of changing locks and re-issuing keys can be considerable. Keys may also be copied, creating even more security risks. Access Control solutions enable you to not only control physical access of people to your premises, but also control the access to your valuable and highly confidential information through the use of various technologies and techniques.
