Online Access Control System
Authorization can be Managed Centrally
Kentix has launched an update of the access management of their Kentix DoorLock online access control system that should save time and money. By enabling the integration of the Microsoft Active Directory (AD) and LDAP directory services, the authorization accounts within the Kentix DoorLock system can now simply be imported and synchronized via the AD or LDAP directory services. Access authorization can therefore be managed centrally and access is simply granted or denied with the help of user profiles and an appropriate RFID medium.
Authentication via the Directory Service
The web based login to the Kentix access control system is also managed via the authentication with the directory services – which makes the use of multiple passwords obsolete. Aside from the authorization alone, the system administrator can also decide who has access where and when via the Active Directory.
If an employee’s role within the company changes, the access control system receives this information automatically from the central server. This function eases the job of access management, particularly in companies that have frequently changing users and authorizations. A periodic system checkup and a brief update via Active Directory enable the system administrator to keep control of constantly changing authorizations with minimum effort.
Large or Small Projects
A further update is the import of .csv files with user data. This enables even large amounts of users to be imported quickly and easily into new systems that are not connected to directory services.
