Skycasters Chooses Access Techniques for Biometric Security

Akron, Ohio – March 18, 2009 “Just put your finger on it,” quips Skycasters’ President, Mike Kister, as he demonstrates the new biometric security system guarding the broadband satellite Internet firm based in Akron, Ohio.

“Since 2001, we’ve provided broadband satellite Internet, and since 2003 we’ve guaranteed bandwidth. Now, in 2009, we’ve taken a step in access control security where anyone can touch the lock, but only authorized fingers get through the door.”

When Skycasters designed their new data center, the first requirement, before the ample capacity for space segment customers or the rows of racks for co-located customer equipment, was mil-spec security.

“Biometric security permits zones of permission unlike any other technology,” says Bob Batian, President of Access Techniques. “There are no more keys to misplace, pass codes to forget, or magnetic cards to erase. It’s a beautiful concept in its simplicity. All you need is your finger. You touch the pad once when encoding the system, then it’s up to management to determine which doors you’re permitted to open – and when.”
