Research and Markets: Global Card-Based Electronic Access Control Systems Market Report

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Global Card-Based Electronic Access Control Systems Market Report" report to their offering.

In this digitalized world, the need to ensure only authorized individuals gain access to such applications becomes absolutely critical. Most of the access control functions are becoming automated, for instance automated door opening at the entrance of offices and apartment houses, logging into an enterprise network/system, to even accessing ATMs, mobile phones, and debit/credit cards.

Traditional security systems used for controlling unauthorized access, such as the age old lock and key mechanism, use of security guards at the entry point, security monitoring, intercom/communications, vehicle gate control, truck traffic control, and alarms, among others, have all been successful in ensuring restricted and safe access.

However, these conventional means of access control have been rendered largely insufficient while combating emerging threats from new-age offenses such as identity theft, intrusions using fake IDs, tailgating among others, thus bringing the new-age card-based electronic access control systems in the limelight.
