Our team at i-Tech Security and Network Solutions knows that you want to keep your business secure, and we offer a wide range of options to help you do just that. One of the most effective solutions we offer is access control, and especially cloud-based access control. In this article, we’ll go over three benefits of using the cloud for access control purposes so that you can decide if this option is right for you.
- Greater Flexibility. One of the main benefits of cloud-based access control is the great flexibility that it offers. If your company has multiple locations, a cloud-based system will allow you to share all your access control information with all of them at once, making it much easier to manage this aspect of the business.
- Remote Access. In addition to sharing information with each on-site network, cloud-based access control also allows you to access the system remotely. This is incredibly convenient, as it means that you can grant the necessary permissions to, say, let repair technicians into the right area without your having to go into the office to do so from the computer there. It also gives you greater peace of mind, as you will be able to check on your facility whenever you want.
- Greater Security. A third advantage of using cloud-based access control systems is that they will automatically update their software. The longer a given version of any program is around, the more time hackers will have had to learn its weaknesses, so staying up to date on the latest patches is critical to keeping them out. With the cloud, you can rest easy knowing that your software is always current and thus as safe from hackers as possible.
