Access Control Winner (Tie): Axis Secures Access to Private Information

DS Graphics | Universal Wilde (DSG | UW) is a full-service communications company that produces and distributes printed and electronic information for corporations and government entities. Most of the projects done in its Canton, Mass., facility involve documents containing personal identifiable information, protected health information, or other content that requires tightly controlled dissemination.

When DS Graphics | Universal Wilde moved its Westwood and Rockland, Mass., plants into a single facility in Canton, it needed to install a comprehensive security solution that could protect the new 307,000-square-foot building. It was looking for full camera coverage of critical areas, as well as a door control system that could maintain a detailed user log. Because they would be printing documents containing highly sensitive content, these components were necessary to comply with audits required by its customers.

DSG |UW turned to integrated solutions provider Cross Camera Controls (CCC) and its partners to help achieve its goal. CCC assembled an integrated surveillance and access control solution consisting of AXIS Camera Station video management system, more than two dozen panoramic and fixed dome cameras, network video intercoms, door controllers with RFID readers coupled with AXIS Camera Station Secure Entry for employee badge verification and horn speakers for alerts.

This fully integrated security solution allows DSG | UW security staff to monitor the building perimeter and interior areas, restrict entrance to authorized personnel, screen visitors, and receive alerts on specific events. It also stores a full year or more of user logs for SOC-compliance audits.

Door sensors not only help with access control measures, but also allow the company to protect sensitive paper stock from environmental damage by quickly alerting on doors left ajar in climate-controlled areas of the building. AXIS Camera Station Secure Entry allows users to manage up to 70,000 credentials and can store logs for a year or longer if needed.
