These Are The Top 2 Security Vulnerabilities At Your Facility

If facility managers don’t address these weak links, no other access control investments will matter

When it comes to physical security risks, do you know how vulnerable your facility truly is? If facility managers don’t address these two weaknesses, no other access control investments will matter. You’ll simply be catching the person who broke in rather than preventing the problem.

Take 10 minutes to learn these problems and then how to mitigate these faults, especially in facilities with older access control systems that are in need of an upgrade.

Here’s a preview:

Right there is the possibility to monitor the axis control reader as you would like a dry contact closure so we put in end of line resistors. And we're looking for resistance value changes on that cable. Someone tapping in or what have you to identify the cables being tampered with, those off board modules can then sever the power to the reader making it inoperable. So there are options, but ultimately if you're thinking about doing a lobby renovation, if you're thinking about destination dispatch integration, if you're thinking about opportunities to shorten your security, at a minimum, you want to take all of your exterior readers and you want to go to a 13.56 megahertz. You want to go to an SDP protocol and you're probably going to update update those panels.
