IP-based access control systemMigrating from a traditional Access Control System (ACS) to an IP-based system can seem like a huge undertaking.  Without a clear sense of the process, you may find that you have several questions: Can you retain any of the time and money invested in your legacy system?  Will your organization be vulnerable during the switchover?  Will you be able to expand your system as your organization grows? 

Knowing the answers before you begin can make the migration process easy and relatively painless.  Whether you're a security director or part of the decision making team, having a clear understanding of the benefits and process of migrating to an IP-based ACS is vital.
