Access Control

Deploy Access Control Systems to facilitate high security in areas that require monitoring and surveillance of the physical activity of people/material. Access control solutions are especially useful in areas such as data centers, government/military institutes and similar facilities, due its advanced security features. With the Schneider Electrics ACS, you also get the option to use personalized environment control to give you access to regulate the connected devices, set alarms or triggers in distinct situations and access control on the environmental conditions. It includes controlled room temperature, air flow, humidity etc.Who should be able to access a company’s data? Under what conditions do entities refuse access to a user with access privileges? To sufficiently protect data, entity’s access control policy must resolve the issues introduced by these questions. It is vital to understand the nuances of access control – what it is, why it’s needed, which entities require it the most, and the challenges it poses. The need for intricate and tech-driven access control systems has increased exponentially since data is not restricted to specific servers or devices. People access data through in-office servers that move to homes, hotels, cars, and coffee shops.Popular types of access control systems – 1) Discretionary Access Control - Discretionary Access Control is the form of an access control system that grants all power in the hands of the business owner in terms of deciding which people are allowed in a specific location, physically or digitally. DAC is the least stringent compared to the other systems, as it grants an individual total control over any objects they own, along with the systems associated with those objects. 2) Mandatory Access Control - Mandatory Access Control is more commonly used in organizations that need a more comprehensive focus on the confidentiality and classification of data. MAC will usually classify all end-users with labels that allow them to gain access through security with predefined security guidelines. 3) Role-Based Access Control System - Also known as Rule-Based Access Control, It is the most demanded in regard to access control systems. Not only is it in high demand among homes, RBAC has also become highly sought-after in the commercial world. Access is granted by the system administrator and strictly depends on the individual’s role within the household or organization and most privileges are set based on their job responsibilities. So, instead of classifying an individual as a security manager, the security manager position already has predefined access control permissions allocated to it.
