Wokingham, United Kingdom, January 15, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- The repercussions of recent events together with the subsequent fallout have put workplace security in the spotlight. What is clear is that the workplace freedom, we once took for granted, have been thrown into question making the review of existing security systems and procedures necessary. Following recent events security systems and procedures need to be re-assessed.
Borer Mantrap technology is used in safety and security critical applications where not only access authority but also positive proof of identity is required before granting access.
An automated Mantrap is a physical access control solution comprising of a space between two interlocking doors. One door must be closed and locked before the second door is permitted to open. Access authentication is validated using multiple factors of authentication including: - something you own (a smartcard), something you are (biometric identification such as fingerprint) and/or something you know (a PIN code).
When a person or group of people enter a mantrap from the outer door, both doors are secured. The Borer system then uses a three-dimensional optical imaging camera to count the number of people inside the mantrap. Each person inside the mantrap is required to register with smartcard, biometric and optional PIN. Only when the identities of all occupants have been positively verified and their access credentials checked is passage permitted.
Mantraps have traditionally been used in places like data centres to protect information and property. They can also be employed to protect people. This has been of particular relevance in the Middle East. But now with ever rising threat levels, mantraps should be considered for deployment other areas where allowing the wrong person to gain access can be the difference between life and death.
