Physical Security

Security in depth

Physical security is essential in establishing and sustaining a comprehensive security posture. Without restricting physical access, logical and administrative controls are of no use. Massive use of portable devices has elevated the need of physical security. More than 25% of security breaches occur because of lost or stolen storage devices or laptops.

Some examples of physical security are:

Guards

The presence of guards provides peace of mind and a sense of security not only to the business owner, but also to the employees and customers.

access cards

Access cards ensure only true employees can access the building. Keys are easily duplicated, but an access card is not.

biometrics

Biometric systems, like fingerprint scanners, provide more accurate identification, lowering your risk of unwanted breaches.

walk-through gates

Having gates in place both outside the building and inside will mean only employees with access cards can enter.

monitoring

You need a way to know who goes in and out and when, logging every entry and exit of each individual.

access controls

Having an access control system in places allows the business to limit access to rooms to only the employees deemed necessary.
