Electronic Door Locks

Noun
|
Sounds like: "e-lec-tric door locks"

Electronic door locks are one of the most common and effective means of data center physical security that keep data center assets in enclosed cabinets or containment areas such as cages locked. Cabinets that restrict access via RFID cards or biometrics can deter unauthorized users from attempting access.

Electronic door locks used in conjunction with Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) software enables a single, centralized system for door access management and saves time, eliminates the stress and hassle of keeping track of physical keys, and even helps meet HIPAA and other compliance requirements. The electronic access support for smart cards and granular access permissions in DCIM software provide organizations with the data they need to mitigate risks and ensure security and compliance.

The benefits of electronic door locks with DCIM software include:

  • Door lock control. Lock and unlock doors remotely. Associate sensors to doors, handles, and locks with drag-and-drop ease. Easily locate the door and its sensors in the EDM hierarchy.
  • Card reader management. Add RFID card readers to the system via autodiscovery. Easily associate cards with doors to provide users with the appropriate level of access at each door.
  • Card access permissions and schedules. Card access can be limited by user location-based permissions, card-to-reader associations, and schedules. Schedules can be recurring or a one-time event.
  • Door audit and status reports. Keep an eye on who goes in and out of your data center with audit and status reports that provide access request details and indicate the statuses of you doors, locks, and handles.
