How to Improve Physical & Cyber Security on Campus

Using policy-driven software ensures your campus will properly integrate, manage and optimize your identity and access control systems.

Colleges and universities present a unique challenge to physical security teams in how they manage people who need physical access to different assets/areas. The profile of these individuals is extremely diverse (e.g. students, faculty, staff, contractors, vendors, visitors) while the campus assets have significant variation in their risk profile (data centers, labs, classrooms, administrative staff, records, library). With the continuous emphasis on cutting operational costs, creating a safe learning environment is difficult to achieve.

The cause of these challenges lies in the inherent complications of the current systems and manual processes for managing physical identities and their access.
