ProdataKey (PDK) has released a whitepaper addressing the cybersecurity benefits of cloud-based access control solutions. The confluence of cyber and physical security is driving dealers and integrators, along with their customers, to question the best ways to address security vulnerabilities in the systems they install. Juniper Research estimates that by 2019, the annual cost of cyber-attacks will cost business over $2 trillion. The majority of access control solutions are now comprised of IP devices, each with the potential to provide bad actors with access to the data and operational systems on their connected networks.
