In this article, we go in-depth into Intellitix’s RFID for Access Control solution, and look at how the live event tech sector is responding to escalating security threats and challenges posed by ticket fraud.
What is Access Control?
Tech Target defines Access Control as systems that “perform authorization identification, authentication, access approval, and accountability of entities through login credentials including passwords, personal identification numbers (PINs), biometric scans, and physical or electronic keys.”
In our case, we deliver access control to the live event sector via RFID (Radio Frequency Identification). Our RFID for Access Control instantly verify an individual’s credentials, freeing your security staff to focus on assessing and mitigating risk.
How does RFID for Access Control work?
RFID chips contain a small amount of data pertaining to the users’ identity and credentials for accessing particular areas of the event site. When the RFID chip comes into contact with the RFID reader, it transmits the data held on the chip and is immediately analyzed and verified.
