As we continue to see advancements in physical security, the presence of the cloud has caused considerable changes in the access control space. Cloud-based access control provides reliable, real-time control of your facilities and can also be openly integrated with third-party systems (such as video surveillance) to help mitigate and prevent risks within the organization. The cloud ultimately eliminates old hardware and improves on new security protocols with minimal work from the end-user. One of the critical parts of cloud-based access control is that it frequently leverages the power of data.
