Why are so many companies installing security portal doors? Security is always the first priority of any business, school, or facility. Each has differing needs and risks but the need to protect people, property, and information is the same. Security, however, is only as good as its weakest link, and for most businesses that weak point is the entry and exit.
Why Are Doors so Vulnerable?
Doors must open and any opening is a vulnerability. In our society, common courtesy dictates we hold the door open for others. In the work environment, it is very difficult to overcome this practice. But what is polite in society is a piggybacking vulnerability in access control. Anyone with the correct credentials can knowingly or unknowingly let those unauthorized through the door. That is a huge problem for your security.
Security Portals Address Big Security Issues
More than ever, security portals are proving to be one of the most important elements in commercial security. These systems help maintain a secure environment by controlling who has access to a certain area and when, while preventing the problem of piggybacking. Using a complex combination of authentication, the AACS security portals can detect an unauthorized attempted access, deny access, and hold an individual for tight security according to set protocols.
Security Portals Enhance Security
Tightening the security at the door makes the entire facility safer. For example, in response to the death of a disabled student who left school property, New York City schools enacted “Avonte’s Law” which requires greater security at the doors of schools. Soon after, a guide from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, “Primer to Design Safe School Projects in Case of Terrorist Attacks and School Shootings,” recommends upgrading door security in the way that New York City is doing.
Proper Security can be a Cost Reduction
Crime is costly, and preventing it can be, too. Security portal doors can help reduce the total cost of security and provide a return on investment by eliminating a costly and slow manual security process and work efficiently 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
If high-security is a priority, AACS security portals are the answer.
