Several organisations use outdated access control methods to gain access to the building, day in and day out. Companies often implement physical access control systems to improve security measures, yet many remain unaware that their legacy systems are not secure and could be at risk.
2021 has been quite the year for the access control industry.
The pandemic has hugely changed the way we work, which has caused legacy access control systems to become much less efficient. For example, the global semiconductor chip shortage had a major impact on the shipment and deliveries of access control cards. This meant that several companies were unable to receive their cards on time.
In addition, more and more companies introduced a combination of flexible and remote working models.
As a result, upgrading from outdated physical access control systems to more efficient models has become top of the list for many. We’re taking a look at the emerging trends dominating the access control industry in 2022 and beyond.
Access control is evolving.
The pandemic has completely altered the requirements of the modern workplace. As a result, physical access control systems such as contactless cards and key fobs have become increasingly less efficient in providing secure access.
It has thus become essential for organisations to adapt their approaches to meet the needs of the ever-changing workforce.
The solution? Mobile access control.
