Within the security industry, it is widely accepted that low frequency Prox no longer provides sufficient protection to anyone using this legacy technology to ensure a secure facility along with protected data and networks. There are a number of simple ways to begin the transition from an IT planning perspective.
You can start by conveniently and gradually replacing existing readers as time and budget allow. This will insure you have the infrastructure in place to support new credentials for your users so that after the transition is complete, enhanced security, privacy and functionality are realized by IT. The same can be done with your physical badges by upgrading to smart cards and utilizing dual tech or even triple tech credentials including HID Prox, iCLASS® and SEOS technologies on a single advanced credential. This allows organizations get future compatible technologies in the hands of their users today which allows for a smooth migration and consistent operations.
In addition to physical access applications, multi-technology credentials offer convenience beyond the door with robust security solutions that supports secure, private network access via one-time-password (OTP). This is compatible with new BlueTooth technologies in addition to Mobile ID applications for door access, computer logon, remote check in and more!
