Access Control - How to protect legacy systems from common vulnerabilities

Access control infrastructure is purpose-built to be operated for a long time.  As access control has incorporated more and more networking services it has also encountered previously unexperienced vulnerabilities associated with the use of these services and the underlying networks.  This means that under the best of circumstances there are legacy access control systems that are in operation today in 2019 which risk exposing vulnerable devices to network attack.

This webinar will discuss  strategies and solutions available to protect those legacy systems by leveraging modern network hardware and services.
