· Integrating physical access control with IT security will bring new benefits while changing how organizations operate.
· Strong authentication will continue to grow in importance in the face of a rapidly changing IT security threat environment – and will also move to the door and include other factors such as biometrics and gestures.
· Strong authentication will increasingly be implemented using a multi-layered strategy.
· Mobile access control will continue to roll out in stages and use various wireless technologies.
· We will enter a new era of NFC authentication services.
· The migration of intelligence to the door will continue with the further adoption of IP architectures and future capabilities of smartphones for access control.
· Printing and encoding advancements will simplify card personalization while speeding throughput for more durable cards that can be securely issued from anywhere, at any time.
· Visitor management systems will continue to move beyond the businesses to schools, hospitals and other institutions where high-profile incidents have proven that safety and security shouldn’t be left to paper logs.
