What Is an Access Control System?
In a nutshell, access control is a technology-based security system that grants authorised individuals access to specific areas/buildings/rooms via a tag, card, or biometric data. Access control systems come in three variations: Mandatory Access Control (MAC), Discretionary Access Control (DAC) and Role-Based Access Control (RBAC).
