What is Access Control Technology and How It Applies to Campus Environment


What is Access Control Technology and How It Applies to Campus Environment


Access control technology is a basic part of data security that is usually used by system administrators to control user access to network resources such as servers, data, and files. It specifies who can access and use school information and resources, which prevents unauthorized access to any resource so that the computer system can be used within a legal scope. Through identity verification and authorization, the access control strategy can ensure the true identity of the user and have the corresponding authority to access school data. It restricts the user’s access to certain information sources and the use of specific control functions. What’s more, access control also applies to restrict physical access to campuses, buildings, rooms, and data centers.

Electronic Access Control (EAC) solves the limitations of mechanical locks and keys through computers. A variety of physical carriers with permissions can be used to replace mechanical keys. The electronic access control system grants access based on the provided credentials. Just like the access control supported by our Q-NEX Smart Campus Solution. The IC card is authorized through Q-NEX web platform Console, and you just swipe the card with permission to access the device system to operate. It avoids irrelevant or illegal persons from entering the protected network resources, or the misoperation is taken by students in campus application. Access control first needs to verify the legitimacy of the user’s identity, and at the same time take advantage of the control strategy to select and manage.
