It’s true what they say: There’s safety in numbers. That’s why Taylored works with preferred security vendors to bring our clients the best security solutions available. Take ISONAS, for instance, one of our strategic partners for access controls. Collaborating with them allows us to install state-of-the-art access systems that reduce maintenance overhead and administration.
More specifically, here’s why we love working with ISONAS access systems.
ISONAS IP Access Systems Keep Everything Under Control
Businesses have always worried about their employee safety and physical assets. But in today’s security landscape, physical threats are evolving to affect data security as well. Physical data theft is an increasingly frequent attack; in fact, it is the most common threat faced by healthcare providers. All it takes is one unauthorized individual with a flash drive, and all your data could be compromised.
IP-based access controls complete the connection between IT and physical security. These systems, often powered through ethernet, make it easier to customize privileges remotely while simplifying installation and maintenance. ISONAS IP controls are especially streamlined because each reader can act as a controller. This means that there’s no need to wire a controller to each reader, thereby reducing the cabling requirements for your system.
- Windows-compatible controller platform
- Optional power over ethernet (PoE) wiring
- Reduced cabling requirements
- More control over settings and user privileges
Cloud-Based Access Controls Keep the Sky from Falling
One reason we’ve always enjoyed partnering with ISONAS is their reputation for innovation. With their recently introduced Pure Access Cloud, they’ve taken access controls one step further by harnessing the power of the cloud.
Cloud-based access controls offer the benefits of IP systems: They integrate with Windows-compatible software for instant administration, they offer power over ethernet (PoE) for easy wiring, and the same ISONAS combination reader/controller devices.
However, moving to the cloud further simplifies the process. You can log in to the controller platform remotely with any Wi-Fi connected device, giving you the freedom to manage controller settings and user privileges from anywhere, at any time. Using the cloud network, you can make updates and monitor system performance and usage in real time — and any changes you make will be instantly applied.
Think of the power: In an emergency situation, you could quickly lock down exits or contain threats, even when your physical security administrator isn’t available. And because the Pure Access Cloud system is supported by the cloud, you have backup in case a server goes down. With hosting by Amazon Web Services, ISONAS is able to offer a 99.95 percent uptime guarantee.
- Remote administration through the Pure Access Cloud platform
- Increased redundancy and reduced downtime
- “Plug-and-play” installation
- Instantaneous updates
- Real-time monitoring
The convenience and flexibility of the Pure Access system make it one of our top recommendations for commercial access controls. But it’s ISONAS’s long-standing reputation for innovation that really seals the deal. For instance, in June they announced a new integration with Entrust Datacard, which allows customers to design customized access cards and batch-print IDs using permissions set in the Pure Access Platform.
That’s just one of the reasons we’re proud to call ISONAS a trusted partner. But access control is just the tip of the iceberg. Our network of strategic partnerships includes a wide range of IT, security, cabling and voice vendors, all hand picked for their quality products and cutting-edge technology.Curious to learn more about how Taylored’s strategic partnerships can boost your business security?
