ICT and the Financial Sector
It’s no surprise that banks and other financial institutions have extremely high security requirements. The public need to be assured that their well-earned assets and investments are safe, and that their protection is never compromised.
Robberies and fraud pose an everyday threat, and special consideration needs to be given to the protection of cash drawers, vaults, and ATMs. Both public and personnel access needs to be tightly controlled, with multiple levels of security in place to operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
Key features an ICT solution provides include:
Requires two authorized users to supply credentials to gain access to a door.
Two Factor Authentication
What you have (card) and what you know (PIN)/who you are (biometrics)- prevents a lost or stolen credential from being used to gain unauthorized access.
Prevents users from passing their credential back for another user to borrow and stops users entering an area by following or tailgating another user.
Integrated IP monitoring on-board all Protege system controllers. Fast, accurate, cost effective and always online.
Allows users to arm or disarm an area as normal, but sends a silent alarm to the offsite monitoring station.
Use Disarm Delay to deter armed robberies. Once a user requests an area disarm a delay timer is started. Once expired, the area disarms.
Automatically arm an area once it has been disarmed for a period. Limit the duration that a user can remain in an area.
Dual Code Control
Requires two authorized users to enter PINs to disarm a restricted area.
