There are many types of access control systems including: magnetic card scanners, access control cards, card readers, authorization codes, magnetic stripes, card readers, card lockers, proximity readers, voice recognition modules, OPC cards, radio frequency Identification (RFID) tags, software enabled cards, and other hardware devices such as cameras, burglar alarms, security cameras, and security lights. Magnetic card scanners prevent unauthorized access by capturing a barcode or magnetic stripe on items known as cards. Obtaining authorization from an authorized point is possible via manual signatures or electronic codes. In some cases, access may be granted only after a predetermined number of unsuccessful attempts by a visitor. In other cases, a system administrator may determine that too many visitors have attempted to gain access. In all cases, physically verifying credentials prevent unauthorized access.

Other physical security measures include securing all personnel doors, and identifying all personnel, as well as all areas where tools or materials are kept. Magnetic stripe scanners can be used to determine physical security credentials by comparing them against a database of previous security clearances. Physical access control technology allows organizations to restrict access by controlling who has access to particular areas, requiring employees to show identification badges and restricting the duration of time that they can remain on the premises. Computer networks have increasingly been fortified with security controls such as anti-virus programs, firewalls, and intrusion detection systems. All of these methods of preventing unauthorized access are effective and have great potential for reducing threats to the business.
