Access Control & Schools: How secure is your Campus?

In terms of school security, there has never been a more stressful time in our nation’s history. It seems like every time you turn on the news nowadays there is another report of a gunman on a campus. And with every news story, people, especially parents, teachers, and school employees, are left to sit and wonder, “Isn’t there a better way to protect our children?”

The Answer: Yes!

The key to school security is to know exactly who is on campus and when. To accomplish this, schools need restrict access to their campuses and implement effect access control systems to check credentials, verify identities, and make sure visitors are approved before setting foot on school grounds. However, this is easier said than done, right? Wrong.

Physical Identity Access Management (PIAM) software helps streamline the once manual, time-consuming, and often ineffective process of checking IDs, verifying an individual’s role, and issuing ID badges to manage access to campuses.  PIAM systems do all of this, and more, automatically. PIAM systems can be used to manage the identity, authentication, authorization, roles, and privileges of campus visitors while cross-checking the visitor’s identity against watch lists or criminal history databases.

Best of all, PIAM software can generate reports at any point in the identity lifecycle.
