Secure biometric access control systems are a must for medical research facilities

Tensor Biometric Access Control Readers

Implementing secure biometric access control systems ensuring that only authorized members of staff are able to access their research facilities at any given time is something medical firms should consider when evaluating their future investment plans.

This was also the case with US-based medical device firm CorMatrix Cardiovascular, who required an access control solution for its new 80,000 square feet site after relocating to a new head office in the greater Atlanta area.

The system needed to be easy to manage and use, reliable, scalable, and fully integrated for seamless identity management of access control and time and attendance. Additionally, the system needed to be able to control multiple doors, a news report has been able to reveal.

The company ultimately chose a solution that included biometrically securing access to the IT room, building access at the front, side and back, as well as access to laboratories, cleanrooms, manufacturing areas and the entrance to the executive wing.

Biometric access control systems – ensuring absolute peace of mind

Biometric technology uses human physical attributes as locks and keys, making it particularly suitable for access control systems on the buildings of large organisations. Using biometrics for security and identification requires meeting two challenges: they must be cheap enough and sufficiently simple to be used by ordinary users. Furthermore, for enhanced security, these biometric access control systems should combine two or more types of authentication, such as coupling fingerprints with key codes or passwords to provide greater trust that who is logging in is only who is expected to do so.
