Whether the industry is healthcare, education, government or commercial, chances are its network over the past few years has transitioned from being simply a utility to a critical component of the organizational structure. These changes have also brought about changes for network administrators who are now responsible for maintaining physical security applications such as video surveillance and access control in addition to organizational programs. Network administration is further challenged with daily threats from hackers and BYOD policies. This is in addition to the requirements for ongoing implementation of additional devices and applications that will add to the network load.
That’s why Galaxy Control Systems, a leader in access control systems, developed its Advanced Port Filtering feature for its award-winning System Galaxy enterprise-class access control and security management solution.
This is the challenge: media access control (MAC) addresses on every Wi-Fi enabled device on the network, the Internet of Things (IoT) and changing network traffic patterns including software-defined networking (SDN) have greatly increased the amount of traffic that is constantly being seen by the network. With Galaxy’s Advanced Port Filtering, not every device with a MAC address is continuously monitored by the security network, which helps manage bandwidth and ensure that the important data and alerts are transmitted efficiently and quickly.
System Galaxy has many more capabilities in addition to Advanced Port Filtering to help ensure security of both logical and physical assets. And because the system is networked, and integrated with related management and security systems, System Galaxy provides new opportunities for security and operational improvements. Organizations of all types can benefit by taking a closer look at the access control offerings on the market to learn how this technology integration can enhance their operations.
System Galaxy is a complete, enterprise-class access control and security management solution that offers a complete selection of in-demand features that integrate with standard and emerging technologies. With System Galaxy you can deploy any combination of features; access control, alarm/event monitoring, intrusion detection, surveillance, elevator control, identification and credential management, photo imaging and badging, time and attendance, visitor management, reporting, and more.
Advanced Port Filtering is one more way that Galaxy is demonstrating our commitment to providing the best service in the industry. Our customers always come first.
