As IT companies have become more aware of the necessity of physical security, it is now a requirement for all of them to have a physical security management structure responsible for securing their facilities, data centers, assets and to keep accurate records of who accessed what and when.
The physical security system(s) is one of the key components in managing employees, visitors and the company’s real estate. Most IT companies use enterprise level physical security systems where uptime, redundancy and high availability is very critical to everyday operations. In addition to the physical security part, there is a high level of integration between the HR database and the physical security system database using LDAP, automated import, XML, and ODBC.
There are some challenges with IT companies as they get very involved with the physical security requirements and specifications. The system architecture, the database and the operating systems are key components for choosing a system. Logical Security is also very critical in this segment of the market.
