When considering upgrading or purchasing your access control, one of the options you'll see is cloud-based access control. The biggest concern regarding any cloud system is the security of the data. Cloud-based solutions can actually offer more security features and be more secure overall than traditional, on-premises solutions. Here's a look at some of the benefits of cloud access control systems:
1. Remote Management
With a cloud system, you can manage your access control system anywhere with an internet connection. This is especially useful if you have multiple locations or if you travel frequently. You can also easily add or remove users from the system, as well as make changes to permissions and access levels.
2. Increased Security
Cloud systems offer increased security features, such as two-factor authentication and real-time activity monitoring. Two-factor authentication adds an extra layer of security by requiring a user to enter not only a username and password but also a code that is sent to their mobile device. This makes it much more difficult for someone to hack into the system. Real-time activity monitoring allows you to see who is trying to access the system and when, as well as any attempts that were unsuccessful.
Cloud systems are very scalable, so as your business grows, you can easily add more users and locations to the system. This is a big advantage over traditional on-premises solutions, which can be very costly to expand.
4. Reduced Maintenance
With a cloud system, there is no need for someone to physically go to each location to maintain the system. All updates and maintenance can be done remotely.
Cloud systems offer a lot of flexibility, so you can customize the system to fit your specific needs. You can also choose from a variety of pricing plans to find one that fits your budget.
If you're considering upgrading your access control system, cloud-based solutions are definitely worth considering. They offer a number of advantages over traditional on-premises solutions, including increased security, scalability, and flexibility. Want to learn more?
