RFID Enhances Access Control Security

Posted by Erin Hodges On June - 9 - 2011

I’m sure most of you are aware that passports are now issued with RFID chips to improve security and reduce tampering or forgery.  RFID technology enhances security for a variety of industries.  RFID-based smart cards restrict and permit access on a card by card basis and are more secure than standard cards.  RFID access cards only need to be placed within a reasonable distance of a RFID reader rather than swiped and are more secure than magnetic stripes because they’re embedded with anti-cloning technology. 

RFID tags also enhance the security of assets being moved within a location.  Items that are restricted to certain areas and cannot be moved beyond preset boundaries such as rooms or doorways are tagged and security is notified immediately of any violations.  Additionally, any asset that was moved to an unauthorized area can be easily tracked and located.
