We often talk about the importance of using biometric security devices to protect your office and data centers from intruders and bad-apple employees, but what about people with the best of intentions?

If you require your employees to swipe a keycard in order to enter your facility or server room, you’ve probably seen how quickly people can lose these. What you may not realize is that employees may be lending their keycards to workers who have lost theirs. While they probably think this is harmless, it could lead to unauthorized individuals gaining access to secure areas of your company. It may also mean that in the event of an attempted security breach, you might not know which employee is responsible.

The simple solution is to install a biometric security system that requires employees to scan their fingerprints in order to access certain areas of your organization. This way, you’ll always know exactly who entered a room and what time they entered it, giving you complete peace.
