As part of our service, it is important to keep our client-partners well informed on Access Control system developments, news, and best practices. Here is just a sampling of typical items from our AndroPediaSM library archive:
Physical keys and door locks have been around for a long time. They do have some positive attributes . . . like keeping people we don’t like out of our space. They are easy to use and it’s safe to say everyone knows how to use them. However, with smart devices and the benefits of technology, even the traditional lock and key can stand an upgrade. How? Access Control.
Below are the top 5 reasons you should consider replacing the keys to your business with a professional Access Control system.
5 Reasons To Get An Access Control System
You have absolute control over your office
If someone quits unexpectedly or just fails to show up, you can quickly remove their access to your building. Therefore, no waiting for a returned key. With Access Control Systems, simple programming changes remove the ex-employee’s access and save yourself sleepless nights wondering if a disgruntled employee is ransacking the office.
Programming of these systems allows for some very useful tracking. With multiple entrances, you can set up zones that specify who can enter a location as well as what times they can enter. For example, maybe you have a storage area or server room on site that should only be accessed during business hours. With access control, you can program doors to remove access at any time you desire. Furthermore, you can also program your system to send alerts if someone is accessing a door inside or outside of a given time range.
You can integrate the system with both your Burglar and Camera system for some helpful features. Doors can be set to disable alarms upon entering. Cameras integrate with door systems. For instance, a key fob opens your front door in the middle of the night. You can set your cameras to tilt and zoom in on this action and you can capture who is entering, whom they might have with them and even what they are carrying in/out of your facility.
Protection from forgetfulness or “accidents”
Ever wake up in the middle of the night wondering if you forgot to lock the back door? With access control, this is not an issue. If a door accidentally remains propped open, you can be notified. If a door held open for an extended period, you’re notified. Try that with just a key!
Need to provide some special access outside of normal business hours? No problem, with remote access to the system, one quick click and you can unlock that door and let them in . . . without ever leaving your house.
This is just a short list and by no means exhaustive. Access Control Systems literally contain hundreds of features and all kinds of customized and creative solutions to make the system work for you and your needs. Give us a call or complete the form to request a consultation to have us show you how a system could enhance your business and remove stress.

Would you be OK with a criminal or competitor watching you and your office via your own CCTV security cameras . . . ?
Didn’t think so.
Security and camera systems, like many other technologies, are becoming more and more integrated within IT networks and infrastructure. This is great for ease of use, capabilities and increased protections. However, it can also open up additional avenues and risks for your company if managed incorrectly.
Imagine all the information someone could snag with limited access to your CCTV system.
You wouldn’t trust your IT to “some guy” (at least we hope not). You should give the same respect to your security systems. It may be a good idea to buy a system from Costco or Amazon. But those off brand systems are easily hacked and they may carry pre-installed malware. Just last year a slew of security camera systems purchased on Amazon were found to be infected and could be hijacked by hackers to access data and camera footage illegally.
In almost all cases, some part of your security camera system needs an IT professional involved to finish the job and configured correctly. You can either trust the camera guy as he fumbles his way around your network, potentially leaving easily accessed holes in your protection, or try to get the camera guy and your IT guy to coordinate and work together (what we call a scheduling nightmare). Or, you can hire a professional technology services firm that does both.

If your business website incorporates an e-Commerce platform that allows you to sell directly to your customers, be aware. According to the latest research by the security firm RiskIQ, there are currently more than half a dozen large, well-organized hacking groups targeting businesses just like yours.
These groups are all using the same basic family of malicious code, collectively referred to as Magecart.� Their preferred targets are websites that use the Magento e-commerce platform. Although historically, they haven't been bashful about targeting other e-commerce platforms as well.
The gist of how they do their damage amounts to digital skimming.� This type of attack is conducted by first penetrating your site's security features. This allows the hackers to inject malicious code onto your site that monitors any transactions that take place when your customers make a purchase from you. In the process, they are "skimming" their payment details and sending them off to a server under the control of the hackers, where they can make use of the payment data for their own purposes.
Given the nature of the attack, there's no outward sign that your customers' payment information has been compromised.� They'll only find out later, when transactions they have not authorized begin appearing on their payment card statements.
In tandem with the research conducted by RiskIQ, Malwarebytes security researcher Jerome Segura has uncovered a new twist on the basic Magecart skimming tactic. This new tactic sees attackers injecting e-commerce sites with code that causes it to pop up a malicious iFrame at the time of payment. Then, the user simply hands over their payment data, not suspecting that it's not a normal part of the e-commerce platform.
In whatever way it is accomplished, the researchers following the development and maturation of Magecart attacks all agree on one thing. �Once the data has been collected, it is sent to a server somewhere in Russia.� Beyond that, the trail becomes too tangled to follow.
Stay alert, and make sure your IT folks are on guard against the threat.� Your customers will thank you for it.
