These organizations are heavily regulated in order to assure the uninterrupted supply of energy to homes and businesses, safety of individuals and to ensure protection from intrusion and sabotage.

Combined ID/access cards can be produced on site for employees and contractors and a visitor management system, creates access cards, checks visitors in and out of facilities and monitors their location during the visit.
Features such as guard tours enable physical security to be managed and controlled centrally.
