Access management – what’s viable and what’s not

In a bid to move away from the security risks and administrational challenges of traditional mechanical locking, companies are keen to develop new methods of access management. This blog post takes a closer look at some of those methods and discusses whether they are viable options.

Constant changes in access management

It’s becoming more and more important to have increased awareness of the access points in our premises. To detect and prevent misuse and keep security levels high, we need to know facts like who has entered, who has left, at what times and what areas they accessed.

Fingerprint biometrics has been gaining popularity as an access management option. However, the recent global health pandemic has forced companies using fingerprint biometrics to take extra precautionary methods to protect our health.

Facial biometrics in the spotlight

Facial biometrics is also a technology that is coming to the fore. The most common use today is when we unlock our cell phones using the device’s internal camera. However, the use of facial biometrics as a form of access management has been questioned in the media due to possible facial recognition errors.
