This may be a good time to consider taking the next step with Multi-Factor Authentication or Advanced Authentication. Finding the right balance between higher levels of security and greater convenience are realistic goals that can be achieved.
With DigitalPersona Premium learn how you can deploy an optimal set of authentication factors including risk-based factors (what you do, where you are, when you act) , fingerprint and face recognition, and adoption of the latest technology in smartcards, USB tokens enabled with FIDO2 or risk based analytics. An important consideration with enterprises at this security level may be to incorporate one of your authentication factors with your existing access control card which we can certainly explore and evaluate for you.
