Security is a top priority for everyone in business today: from government agencies to law enforcement; healthcare to K12 schools and colleges; event management, religious organizations, resorts, casino/gaming, and many others. This is especially true when you have regular visitors to your facility where you are checking people in an out of the building. At any one of these business venues, a security breach could cost your company hundreds of thousands of dollars if you're not careful.
Who is in the building right now?
To ensure that you stay on top of the latest trends – both with security and with the latest fraudulent activities – it’s critical to always be looking for new ways to increase your awareness. Awareness of:
- who comes through your facility’s doors
- who is on-site
- the location of where they’re on-site
- the length of time they’ll be on-site
- who is accounted for in the building now
Visual ID cards
There’s a wide array of choices when it comes to badging the visitors to your facility. Card options can range from basic visitor badges to expiring temporary badges for your visitors, along with having photo ID badges for your employees for easy visual identification.
Proximity cards with photo ID
Proximity cards that are used along with an access control system can be customized so that only certain people have access to specific areas of the building. Some examples include:
- An access card with your unique logo and the employee's photo
- An access card with logo, photo, and holographic lamination
- An access card with logo, photo, holographic lamination, and custom tactile impression
Have you ever had a situation where two employees are entering the building at the same time, and only one of them uses their access card to unlock the door? This is where having a custom visual ID hologram or a hologram with tactile impression will provide you with an extra layer of security that can be seen from 10 feet away!
The optimal printing and security solution
The Entrust Datacard Sigma printer can be paired with the inline holographic lamination module and the custom tactile impression feature, making it a multi-layered secured ID card issuance system. In this way, it will provide ample visual ID that is not only unique to your organization but will also help prevent counterfeiting and card tampering.
