Which Industries Benefit from Access Control Systems

which industries benefit from access control systems

A variety of industries can benefit from installing access control systems.

An access control system can simplify building and network security systems in many ways. This versatility means that any industry or property that has security needs can benefit from access control systems. Industries including healthcare, government, education, business, and more can benefit from this increased security in unique ways. Below are just a few examples of how several common industries can incorporate access control systems into their work. 


The healthcare industry can use access control systems in a multitude of ways. They can, for instance, use these systems to follow HIPPA regulations for health data confidentiality. Doctor’s offices, insurance companies, and hospitals with enhanced access control ensure the safety of their patient’s information. Access control can also protect IT rooms and equipment racks from unauthorized access and safeguard physical files in examination rooms and expensive equipment like MRI machines. 

Additionally, access control can prevent access to areas that contain biomedical waste or chemicals. This way, untrained individuals do not accidentally access these risky areas, and safety can be ensured. 


Access control systems can verify employees upon entry to local or state government buildings. They can also limit access to specific rooms, floors, or departments so confidential information remains secure. Some access control systems can also keep track of when certain areas are accessed and by who, so there is a record of access if any information should go missing or be exposed. 


Schools and particularly large, sprawling universities have multi-location security needs. Access control systems can keep students out of faculty areas and unauthorized individuals out of dorm buildings. Science equipment and computer labs can also be protected by access control and record entry and departure times of approved individuals. 


Key cards and access control systems are often thought of as essential for large corporate buildings, but small and medium-sized businesses can also benefit from this technology. Access control is scalable to your needs, so even a small business can find solutions for their work size and budget.
