Even the latest in biometric readers can leave facilities vulnerable. What’s at fault? The legacy Wiegand connection. Due to advances in technology, the Wiegand protocol can easily be hacked, disabling your access control – or worse. The Security Industry Association’s OSDP protocol with Secure Channel is the best defense against hackers.
