Beyond Access Card: Mobile Access as the New Standard for Security



The concept of 'access' has transformed today, thanks to the digital revolution. 'Mobile Access' is not just a buzzword; it's a pivotal shift in how we interact with physical and virtual spaces. Gone are the days when access meant a jingle of keys or the swiping of plastic cards. The future is mobile, and it's here to stay.


Physical Cost Saving


Adopting mobile access credentials translates into significant physical cost savings. Traditional systems rely on the production and distribution of physical cards—a process that is both material and labor-intensive. With mobile access, these expenses are virtually eliminated, as the digital passes are created and distributed through a secure, CloudGate platform.


Administration Cost Reduction


Mobile access systems streamline the entire lifecycle of access management. The manual tasks of issuing, tracking, and replacing cards become automated, enhancing efficiency and reducing workload. This automation not only cuts costs but also accelerates operations, allowing for real-time updates and changes to access rights. Making life easier for the HR, Admin, and Security Managers.


Environmental Cost Benefit


Sustainability is a pressing global issue, and mobile access credentials are at the forefront of eco-friendly practices. By diminishing the need for plastic and paper, organizations contribute to the conservation of resources, aligning operational practices with environmental responsibility. The first step towards Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) compliance for the organizations.


Enhanced Security


With mobile access, security is tightened. Mobile devices offer multifactor authentication options like biometrics, making unauthorized access exponentially more difficult. Encryption and secure communication protocols add layers of security that surpass the capabilities of traditional access methods.


Convenience and User Experience


The convenience of using a smartphone or a smartwatch for access cannot be overstated. With a simple tap, users can unlock doors, access secure areas, and even make payments. This level of convenience offers a seamless user experience that enhances satisfaction and productivity.


Remote Management and Control


The ability to manage credentials remotely is a game-changer for security and operations. Administrators can instantly grant or revoke access permissions, respond to security incidents, and update access protocols without being physically present, offering unparalleled control and flexibility.


Global Access Management


Mobile access revolutionizes the way multinational companies operate by enabling seamless global office access. With mobile-based credentials, an employee from any corner of the world can visit different office locations or facilities within the organization and gain entry based on their role and permissions. This ease of access is governed by sophisticated Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) and Policy-Based Access Control (PBAC) systems, which ensure that employees have the right access corresponding to their current role and the policies applicable to the specific location they are visiting. This global credential management not only simplifies access for traveling employees but also enhances security by enforcing consistent access policies across all locations.


Reliability and Redundancy


Mobile access solutions are designed with contingencies in mind. Features like Apple Wallet's Power Reserve ensure that even when a device is low on power, users can still gain access to their designated areas, ensuring reliability and continuous operation.


Integration with Other Systems


Mobile access isn't an isolated function; it's part of an integrated system. It can dovetail with other operational systems such as time and attendance, secure printing, and even HVAC controls, leading to a more interconnected and intelligent infrastructure.
