Minimising the risk of hacking and cloning to access control credentials
Did you know that over 70% of businesses and organisations still use access card technology platforms that are over 30+ years old and provide no protection against hacking and cloning? Now there's a replacement business opportunity if there ever was.
Many business entrust their security to 125kHz "Prox" or unencrypted or compromised 13.56MHz Card and Reader Systems which can be remotely "sniffed" and the data obtained used to clone user credentials to obtain unauthorised access.
Luckily, there is a very economical, cost effective solution which allows the organisation to upgrade to secure encrypted smart card and reader technology without the costly expense and heartache of having to change out the access control panel and rewiring.
Secure, economical "off the shelf" smart card and readers systems such as the BQT Solutions Miniguard miPASS range can in most cases be installed on your access control system using the existing panel and wiring, allowing you the comfort of higher security without the cost of a full ACS upgrade.
