Financial Institutions

Banks and financial institutions, by the very nature of their business, demand a high level of security in multiple areas, including for employees, customers and visitors, private records, safes, vaults and ATMs. 

The Challenge:

  • Maintain an open feeling within a tight security structure
  • Protect the financial institution’s staff, customers and assets
  • Establish an overall enterprise-wide security management system that integrates video, associated sensors and access control 
  • Provide LDAP and role-based access control for the enterprise
  • Provide support for multi-protocol systems
    • Comply with all privacy laws including the Financial Privacy Act
  • Minimize conflicts and costs of litigation
  • Maintain a consistent set of policies and procedures
  • Develop a crisis management plan
    • Institute a See Something; Say Something culture 
    • Rigorous monitoring
    • Timely access to actionable information

Access Control and Other Challenges:

  • Extend access control throughout the facility in a cost-effective manner
  • Integrate with other security and non-security systems and 
  • Improve security in open areas.

The Maxxess Solution:

Extend access control throughout the facility easily and cost-effectively

Maxxess provides cost-effective access control administration and management to the entire facility--including often unsecured interior doors, remote doors, medicine storage areas, lockers, server cabinets and padlocks--without the need to add wiring or expensive wireless infrastructure or compromise functionality.

Most facilities do not include all doors on secure access control systems because of the high cost, which can run $2,500 or more per door “plus cable & labor.” Maxxess has the capability to add these doors at a significantly lower cost, as low as $400/reader. 

We accomplish this via the integration of our eFusion security management platform to the SALTO Data on Card Virtual Network system.

This integration provides a virtual network that uses the ID credential to store the cardholder’s door access permissions and eliminates the need to add expensive wireless infrastructure or hard-wire the access control system to every door and reader.

Integrate with other security and non-security systems:

Our systems have been used to provide not only a rigorous level of security but to improve workforce coordination. We are one of the few security system manufacturers that can tout ROI rather than cost of implementation.

Outlined here is a representative sample of integrations that Maxxess has implemented using its eFusion universal security management platform:

eFusion integrates to Active Directory and provides LDAP and role-based access control for the enterprise.

eFusion provides support for multi-protocol systems.

The eFusion platform integrates access control, time and attendance, ID badging, fire alarm, video and the various silos of responsibility.

Maxxess systems implement scalable, open controller architecture--from single point to 64-door controllers.

Maxxess developed first-in systems that give management the ability to enter an area and confirm it is secure before changing to normal permissions.

Maxxess established man-trap controls and interlocking processes for high-security cash centers.

Maxxess can supply Geocylinder wireless locks for safe-deposit boxes, reducing keying.

Maxxess can supply follow-me printing, cashless vending and customer-room booking, where required.

Maxxess systems improve overall safety and security by helping the organization institute a see something, say something culture and giving them timely access to actionable information.

Maxxess has developed a two-way adaptive crisis management plan that can be tested directly from the security system.

eFusion supports dual-access control systems, in which the second system handles employees in management positions to establish their own access permissions for entry into sensitive areas.

eFusion integrates to VMS systems distributing hot alerts to staff and bringing up the relevant cameras so security can visually follow and audit incidents.

ambit by Maxxess allows management to take the pulse of the financial institution at any time.

ambit can automate evacuation and mustering, as well as provide special reporting from the muster station.

Improve security in open areas with patented, powerful tools.

Did you or one of your staff ever “feel” that something was wrong? That you were uncomfortable? Maxxess latest innovation, ambit, is designed to capture that sixth sense, that perception of danger and provide the organization with as much anticipation time as possible.

The ambit system harnesses your staff’s understanding, experience and all of the human senses to make observations, choices and decisions about any situation that they encounter, including anticipating danger.

ambit offers situational awareness, collective intuition, greater incident anticipation and the possibility of pre-emptive response.

ambit empowers your employees and creates a sense of community.

With ambit, every staff member can communicate and see something, say something.

It also allows the organization to provide a shared awareness and perspective of a current important situation with its mobile staff, enabling rapid and accurate response to all security situations.

ambit extends the enterprise’s security reach beyond the bounds of the facility, dramatically increasing the security coverage throughout the organization, including remote facilities.

The ambit technology opens up a whole new sphere of safety and security intelligent sensing. 

ambit provides heat maps of all staff activity that provides a clear view of workforce activity quickly and intuitively. Conversely staff can use ambit to report robberies, confrontations or other emergency situations within the facility.

ambit helps the organization maintain a consistent set of policies and procedures. Its audit trail function protects the organization and minimizes costs of litigation.

Best of all ambit does not require any new infrastructure and provides for customer privacy.
