Many commercial buildings in New York City, will use some type of physical access control system, for the purpose of safeguarding assets, property, tenants, and employees. This is accomplished by verifying, monitoring and restricting door, gate, or entry way access to a building, property, floor, or room to authorized individuals. For many enterprise businesses, restricting access to certain areas is vital in order to protect proprietary data, servers, resources and even people. Is your building’s access control technology from the 1990’s? It might be time for an upgrade. It is recommended that businesses do a yearly review of their security and access control.
