ASSA ABLOY Helps Organizations To Adopt Mobile Access Control

Protect yourself from online attacks that threaten your identity, your files, your system, and your financial well-being.


The smartphone is changing access control and security management at every scale and level, from global corporations to small companies. Making the switch to mobile access control, however, can seem daunting. Questions may arise around cost, practicality and the potential need for new door hardware.

Secondly, mobile credentials are simpler and quicker to administer than key-cards, which brings significant cost savings.
