Safeguarding your business with Secure, Flexible and Cost-effective Access Control Systems - ASG

All businesses have assets, property and human resources that need to be safeguarded. Electronic access control installation is a secure, flexible and cost-effective way to control access to your building at different times to provide a safe and secure environment. ASG offers effective access control systems, as well as IT training and hosted PBX.

Different Type of Access Control Systems by ASG

What is Access Control?

Access control is any security system that limits access to areas and activities that you wish to control. It is a flexible system that allows you to change access user rights when needed and is not fixed when it is initially installed. Therefore, access rights can be added or removed swiftly and efficiently.

Access control is any security system that limits access to areas and activities that you wish to control.

Therefore, access rights can be added or removed swiftly and efficiently.

Cloud Based systems

In any Cloud Based System the control, permissions and access are all based in the Cloud. Therefore, changes to permissions by the administrator can be made from any location. This is done by accessing the browser window, logging in and creating access permissions. This is suitable when managing several sites or when the administrator is based off site.

On site

In this situation a dedicated PC or piece of hardware is set up with the access software. Then, the permissions and access is set up on that specific computer. For example, if the reception desk of the business is the key point of facilitation or access. Users will need their access credentials from the office via the dedicated hardware. Therefore, their access cannot be set up remotely. In addition, this is used extensively on construction sites where ad hoc access is common and access to certain areas changes as the project evolves.

On Mobile Phones

These systems work with an installed infrastructure of locks and keypads / access points. Users have a software app deployed to their smartphones. This app is then used to use the software and activate the permissions, so that once the phone is held to the access pad the door is opened.  The permissions for each user can then be changed remotely to add and restrict their access.

Describe the 3 different types of access control?

You will be able to manage employees and visitors with different access control systems for different control factors:

RBAC (Role-Based AC)

In this system roles are created and then assigned to different jobs. Employees or other users are then given different roles to their profile. Each person can have various roles assigned to their profile. The system then restricts access via these roles and only the profiles with that specific role will have the necessary permissions for access. Therefore, management of staff can be undertaken by adding and removing roles to restrict access.

MAC (Mandatory AC)

This system consists of a software that restricts access, or hardware that restricts access- such as a password, code or keypad. The settings are centrally controlled by the operation system and system administrator. It is not possible for users to change the access control resources. Therefore, this is the strictest of all control levels. It is also the most secure but does have a few opposite effects, as it requires increased planning prior to installation. Moreover, it requires a lot more attention to continually update the access rights and categorization of the users.

DAC (Discretionary AC)

In this system, the user is able to manage their own access and data, such as how they would manage their own data and passwords on a desktop PC. The administrator sets levels that staff and other users can access, thus they can only control the data on that level. Therefore, they will have to be given external access in order to bypass the level given.
