The Convergence of Security and IT as it relates to Access Control
In today’s world, the same person frequently manages IT, physical security and networking. That’s because the technologies of encryption, bandwidth, network integrity, firewall access and physical security have converged into a new and powerful networked environment.
Security managers today must understand network edge topology, zero footprint software, high speed networking, and the integration of databases, video and other related subsystems.
The complexities of today’s security environments also create special opportunities for a product such as eMerge, with its native IP hardware technology. eMerge simplifies your IT security environment rather than complicating it.
Because eMerge does not require you to install any software or pull new wiring to any computer – you simply connect components to your data network and eMerge will recognize them – it has a zero footprint and provides control of a complete physical security environment through a web browser that is already on your PC.
eMerge changes the age-old equation of inflexible low-end security systems or over-featured, expensive high-end systems. Designed from the ground up to be a cost-effective complete solution, eMerge is a complete, scalable security management system compact enough to fit in a panel-sized box, yet powerful enough to integrate your access control, alarm monitoring, video and intercom in one system.
