At Modular Security Systems Inc. (MSSI), we provide portable perimeter security solutions utilizing the portability and durability of ISO shipping containers combined with turnstiles, climate-controlled guard areas, and access control technologies of all kinds. There are two broader categories of access control technologies (physical security technology access control and logical access control solutions). This week in the Turnstile Blog we'd like to take a closer look at what physical access control technology really is – and we’ll explain its function in the realm of the portable, turn-key, perimeter security solutions that we offer here at MSSI.
Access control is the judicious selection of individuals who are permitted access to a high-security location. Physical access control technologies and solutions limit the physical access of individuals to high-security locations such as major industrial and commercial construction sites, subways, airports, harbors, plants, refineries, military installations, etc. Physical security technology utilizes some form of identification from a person attempting to enter a location, assesses the information given, and determines whether or not the person is to be granted access to the area they wish to enter.
In the world of physical security there are a number of technologies which may be used to identify a person – hand-geometry readers, IRIS scanning devices, hand vascular pattern recognition systems, RFID, access card readers – and at MSSI we’ve used them all in conjunction with our Patented Modular Access Control (MAC) Portals.
MSSI’s primary focus is on developing portable perimeter security solutions which utilize physical access control technologies to
We can provide access control technologies with a wide range of access control reporting and tracking functionality. Working with access control partners such as Niscayah Inc., Convergint Technologies, and IRIS ID, we have been able to lean on these companies’ respective knowledge to meet the security and access control technology needs of our customers. We are committed to designing the specific portable perimeter security solutions our customers need in order to meet their particular security goals. Physical access control technology – combined with our patented brand of portable turnstiles in shipping container systems – currently helps to secure hundreds of locations around the world.
