Access control is the core component of any security strategy. For the past 40 years, researchers have spent tremendous amount of time in defining abstract access control models. And now, with the emergence of biometrics, such as facial recognition, fingerprint scanning, and voice identification, the number of improvements in the field have also increased exponentially. In the same way, means to bypass access have also increased. For instance, hacking techniques are being developed to crack passwords, and magnetic strips are used to bypass access cards.
Utilisation of cutting-edge technologies allows organisations to counter these impediments. To that end, cloud computing and big data technologies enable companies to handle and analyse a large amount of data that are generated by access control systems. Combining this data with machine learning and predictive analytics can help businesses to not only monitor and mitigate threats but also prevent and detect threats altogether.
Understanding these trends, in this edition of Enterprise Security Magazine, we have compiled a list of top 10 access control solution providers in Europe for the year 2020. The companies listed here showcase extensive business knowledge and exhibit competence in delivering cutting-edge solutions that meet the needs of today’s digitalised businesses.
