Top 3 Ways ID Cards Protect Your Business
The most common reason most organizations use ID cards is for visual security. With a simple glance, you can easily determine whether or not an individual should have access into your business. Adding a holographic overlaminate to your cards increases the security of the card itself by making it hard to tamper with or duplicate. Overlaminates also help extend the life of ID cards in general.
Organizations that require a higher level of security use ID cards for controlling access to their facility or to specific areas inside their facility. Access control cards can simply be used as a key that can be ‘turned off’ when an employee should no longer have access to your facility. Printing the card holder’s photo, name and other information on the card helps ensure that access control cards aren’t shared or given to someone who is unauthorized.
Using smart cards to control access to an organization’s equipment is a growing use of ID cards. Smart cards include a chip that stores personal information of the cardholder and grants or denies access to your businesses computers, files, and other equipment. Smart cards can also be printed on to include photo ID and can be used with an access control system. A single card can serve many purposes and protect your entire business!
