Network security and building security are equally important. If either system is compromised, the organization is immediately at risk. But while many network security systems are now built to support IT best practices and standards, such as virtualization, physical access control systems (PACS) have traditionally been designed without IT professionals in mind.

The human brain has limited attention span capabilities. A 1999 study (Green, 1999) found that after 20 minutes, guards watching a video scene will miss up to 95 percent of all activity. Leveraging advancements in video pattern detection, video analytics technology addresses this issue and has comprehensively evolved from being a strictly forensic tool into a powerful proactive solution. Paired with high-definition imaging, HD analytics provides security operators with highly accurate alerts and clear image detail, enhancing their ability to effectively intervene and take action when an incident occurs.

The scenario repeats itself all too often: the hourglass or spinning icon when accessing live or recorded video, waiting for the system to catch up. Slow, choppy and blurry video as it struggles to deliver required resolution and frame rate. These are the familiar symptoms of a video management system (VMS) unable to handle the demands of a growing high definition surveillance architecture.

According to the same survey, for respondents who do use video surveillance, a majority (66%) said that for the locations or facilities where video surveillance is in use, fewer than half are actively monitored by security personnel. Instead, video is recorded and stored, only to be used forensically – to provide evidence after an incident takes place.

As Forbes Insights found in a recent study, many organizations underutilize video surveillance in their business*. The majority of those surveyed (58 percent) said they cover less than half of their valuable assets with video surveillance; unsurprisingly, businesses with widely distributed assets, such as remotely located power stations or cell towers, face particular challenges covering a majority of their assets with video surveillance.

Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) has become a viable solution for even the smallest of companies as broadband internet access has become affordable and much more widespread. VoIP offers a low cost alternative to expensive traditional phone services, and is rapidly becoming the communications system of choice to reduce telecommunications costs. Hosted VoIP services are also gaining popularity among smaller companies since these services do not require any investment in hardware.

In today's global business environment, the value of working together, or collaboration, can have a huge positive impact on your business. Your employees and teams need to work together, and share ideas and information across geographic boundaries.

The relationship between small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) and Information Technology (IT) can often be described as a “love/hate” relationship. You absolutely rely on technology to help your business run efficiently, but IT is most likely not one of your core competencies – and just keeping your systems running can be a major undertaking that distracts you from business-building activities.

For the safety of your company, your employees and your customers, you need total protection for compliance, security and peace of mind. A comprehensive data protection plan isn't just about technology anymore – it should also include access limitations for employees, training and the implementation of privacy policies for complete defense against all that's out there.
