Whether in response to U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) threat advisories or holiday schedules, organizations are faced with two options: Either make time-consuming point-by-point adjustments in their access control systems or attempt to get by with a static configuration that may be overly aggressive or dangerously passive given their circumstances. AMAG Technology's new Threat Level Manager efficiently and effectively resolves both problems.
In a single step, AMAG security management system administrators can immediately change the settings of their entire access control system between a choice of five security configurations matched to DHS threat advisory levels. AMAG administrators simply customize each security configuration based on a variety of options. For example, in a "Guarded" threat environment, all card holders could access a particular door using their cards only. When the AMAG administrator uses Threat Level Manager to move the AMAG system to the "Severe" setting, only a select group of card holders can access that same door and are required to provide biometric and/or PIN authentication in addition to presenting their access cards.
Security system administrators within the government, as well as the contractor companies that serve them, will especially appreciate the ease with which they can synchronize their security posture to match DHS advisories. Threat Level Manager is available as an optional upgrade module to AMAG software version 5.0 (available January 2005) and later.
