San Jose, California, – March 26, 2019 – Facts of Farpointe, the OEM of the access control industry for credentials and RFID readers, has announced that end users, distributors, integrators and systems providers can evaluate how easy it is to convert from card access control to mobile access control through a quick test provided by Farpointe Data. By simply clicking on a link or accepting a bar code through your smartphone, people can obtain a free mobile credential.
"What implementers will quickly find when switching from card-based access credentials to smartphones is that many legacy access control systems require the use of portal back-end accounts," explains Scott Lindley, general manager of Farpointe. Data. "However, newer solutions provide an easier way to distribute credentials with features that allow the user to register their phone only once and do not need other portal accounts, activation features or hidden fees."
For hackers, these portal accounts have become rich and easy to access to confidential user data caches. These older mobile systems also force the user to register themselves and their integrators for each application. Accounting alone can be confusing. For example, who registers it, hidden fees, who is in charge of security and who is ultimately responsible, can leave all questions unanswered.
"Today, all that is needed to activate the new mobile credentialing system is the phone number of the smartphone," emphasizes Lindley.
