The technological age that we find ourselves in today is defined by a need to protect everything. A simple lock and key or a password on your computer simply isn’t enough anymore. Cyber-thieves and hackers have the ability to break through almost any password or security system, accessing sensitive information, which is not meant for their eyes.

One of the best ways to prevent this is by adopting various access control solutions. There are a range of different solutions that you may choose to use, each of which is defined by a particular type of software program. These are often cloud-based solutions, and include things like AWS, Microsoft Azure, and IBM Softlayer.


What is the best access control solution (in our opinion)?

Here at GA Systems our preferred access control solution is cloud based OKTA. OKTA was named the best access control solution by Gartner – the pinnacle of software and technological evaluation. In our opinions, OKTA provides the best identity control, allowing you to access sensitive programs from multiple devices – with complete security. This means that you can take confidential work files home to work on, open sensitive documents, or use a number of other applications that you wouldn’t like a hacker to access without having to worry.


Why do you need to adopt an access control solution?

There are a huge number of reasons why you and your company should adopt high-quality access control solutions today. These include:

  • Ease of use – while the idea of access control may sound complex or difficult, it isn’t! Using a system such as OKTA is extremely simple and secure.
  • Secure – with a high-quality access control system, you can be comfortable in the knowledge that all of your sensitive data is secure and safe from hackers.
  • Restrict or block access to certain people easily – if you have employees who you suspect of misusing company information, previous employees who still have access to the system, or other people who you don’t want to have access any more, then you can easily block or restrict their access.


What are the benefits of using GA Systems to support your OKTA environment?

Although there are simple programs out there, which claim to provide secure access control, we believe that it isn’t worth you wasting your time and money on them. These programs can be difficult to install, time-consuming, costly to maintain, and ineffective if you don’t understand exactly how they work. Rather than wasting your time, money, and effort, you need to speak to GA Systems today about implementing the right access control solution for you.
