Sensitive data is vulnerable to theft if not physically secured. Around 9% of data breaches, at an average cost of $3.54 million, are caused by compromised physical security. Luckily, access control can help. By leveraging the cloud, enterprises, commercial real estate companies and others can protect and secure their IT assets. Here are some tips for creating an integrated security ecosystem you can easily manage.

Top Access Control Integrations for Enterprises

Video Integrations

Integrate your existing video surveillance systems for enhanced physical security of your IT assets and sensitive information. Genea facilitates integrations with various third-party video surveillance systems, including Rhombus Systems, Milestone Networks, Cisco Meraki, Tyco Cloud VMS and many more. These integrations help system administrators monitor door access activities in real-time, manage video surveillance from a centralized dashboard and correlate video feeds with door access events.

Visitor Management

Touchless Visitor Management maximizes the user experience while keeping guests and IT assets safe. Keep track of who enters and exits the building. You can integrate Genea Security with Visitor Management to streamline the process of assigning and distributing credentials to guests.

Identity Management

Identity and Access Management (IAM) is a framework that authenticates users and determines if they are authorized to access resources at a building. Genea Security facilitates integrations with several well-known identity providers, such as Okta, Microsoft Azure Active Directory and OneLogin to automate the adding and removing of users for physical and network access control across all your office locations. A robust identity management platform is crucial to access control information security.
