EMKA define the latest industry requirements in Biometric Access

Posted By Andy Billingham, EMKA (UK) Ltd, 30 November 2016

Explains EMKA M.D. Andy Billingham – “Biometric technology at the cabinet is meeting the need for high level security at customer server cabinet enclosures, but the customer often wants the option of seamlessly tying it into their entry system and building management system as well”.

“Until recently there was not a solution to accommodate this need, but EMKA have worked for some years with Digitus Biometrics to provide a biometric access solution embedded in the cabinet handle. This was initially launched with software that was independent from the enterprise management software because in fact many companies’ security teams prefer to have separate systems for their data centre and telco server racks versus their enterprise pedestrian doors and video solutions. Aside from some regulatory requirements dictating such separation, this preference was largely due to the EMKA Digitus system being seen as a superior data centre and specialty enclosure niche, whose monitoring, alerting and reporting capabilities were more reliable, secure, and user-friendly than existing enterprise access control systems. But lately, global companies who have invested large sums and resources into their enterprise access control management (ACM) systems have a strong economic and efficiency motivation (if not a corporate mandate) to integrate cabinet access controls into their enterprise ACM platform.”

Consequently EMKA/Digitus Biometrics have now announced a new technology partnership with the world-class BioConnect identity management platform, so that the db Bus and db Sentry provide full control for server cabinet access. The result is a new, fully-integrated solution that perfectly synchronizes with major ACM solutions.
