How can a cloud security system benefit me over traditional physical access control?

Choosing to use a cloud based security system comes with a large amount of positive perks. One of the main advantages that comes with the cloud is data security. Because the database is no longer held on a local server, you are free from local PC’s and operating systems. Borealis is hosted on the Amazon Web Server (AWS) meaning that your sensitive information is secure and always accessible.  

Another advantage of cloud based security is that it reduces the need for PC maintenance. The version of the cloud is automatically updated from our side, meaning less stress for you. It’s easy to maintain and reduces cost by removing the need to host and run an expensive local server. 

Why should you use cloud based access control?

Outside of additional sensitive data security, cloud solutions offer a user friendly experience. Borealis can be accessed from anywhere on any device with an internet connection. 

Borealis has been designed with ease of use in mind. This keeps training costs to a minimum and removes the need for expensive user training. Because Borealis is so easy to learn it could save your business time and money. This makes our cloud based access control a potential solution for many companies' needs.

Why are other businesses moving their access control to the cloud?


The security industry is never short of options. It can be difficult when choosing which type of access control model is right for you. There are many features and benefits for each solution, so why are so many companies deciding to use the cloud?

Work from anywhere - Borealis offers the ability to work remotely from anywhere with an internet connection. This is ideal for off-site workers and those working from home.
Flexibility - Many businesses can be responsible for multiple sites. This can often mean that a large number of employees will need access to these buildings. Borealis allows you to manage all of your sites from one web portal. 
Multiple logins - Borealis allows you to set up multiple user logins, each with their own level of administration. For example, there could be one user with full administration rights and another that only has access to edit cardholders.
Reduced cost - Hosting your access control on a cloud server removes the need for your business to host their own PC. It also removes the cost of a dedicated employee to maintain the system. 
Building security - Cloud based access control is always on the latest version. This means that your data is secure without the worry of breaches from older versions of software. 
Ease of use - Many businesses spend a large amount of time and money training their staff how to use complicated software. Because Borealis is easy to navigate and intuitive to learn, this reduces those training costs. 
Scalability - Because most cloud solutions follow a subscription as a service (SaaS) model, this allows the user to customize their experience to one that suits their needs, you only pay for what you need. If you need to scale up or down you can do so with ease.

In conclusion

There’s no denying that the way access control work has traditionally been done is moving in a new direction.  Technology is moving forward and the security industry is moving with it. Security is becoming more and more important and new businesses are adopting access control every single day.
