Today’s megapixel cameras bring a host of benefits to the table
The first IP network-based megapixel (MP) cameras were a disruptive technology. They were often more expensive on a unit basis than their familiar analog counterparts.
Least privileged access delivers most secure onboarding
Traditionally, security directors deployed physical access control systems to secure doors and IT managers controlled their networks. Physical security and IT security were managed independently and operated in silos. Today, this model is no longer successful.
Like many other standards, ONVIF has evolved incrementally and its development, use and acceptance have as well. The journey ONVIF is on is actually quite typical for a standards organization.
Make sure you choose the right VMS for your business
Whether your business is contemplating an upgrade or delving into a comprehensive video surveillance system for the first time, it’s important to consider how a modern VMS integrated with state-of-the-art security devices can provide not only security but also analytics and business intelligence to help you move beyond visual security into understanding your entire environment.
Emerging technologies require leadership and critical thought
Advancements in emerging technologies require leadership, critical thought about the future, and a willingness to take risks. Stretching oneself to integrate with new technologies is critical, of course, but the true promise of innovation is offering new solutions to the market.
Examining whether good enough will actually do the job
Technology marches ever forward, lockstep with ‘Moore’s Law.’ However, the influx of technological change affects different industries in different ways.
When it comes to enterprise security, the times have radically changed, leaving companies vulnerable in ways that they never were before.
We’re hearing about security breaches every day in the news. From retailers like Target and TJ Maxx, to financial services firms like Equifax and J P Morgan Chase, and government agencies like the Securities & Exchange Commission (SEC), it seems like no organization is safe.
From security check to perimeter protection: Video security for Cancun Airport
Based on its extensive experience in airport operations, ASUR determined that it needed to redesign video security at Cancun Airport to have one system operating across all four terminals.
Advances in video management software and systems integration are creating positive new uses for video data at airports—well beyond security
With the decline in shopping mall popularity and a rise in online buying, many businesses are desperate for busy new places to set up shop. And, with air travel at an all-time high, many airports are working to upgrade their terminals, making them more comfortable, competitive and profitable for all involved.

Deep Learning is changing the industry
As camera counts and the data they provide grow ever-larger, it becomes increasingly difficult for organizations to monitor, perform investigations, and draw useful conclusions from the valuable information gathered by their video surveillance infrastructure.
System integrators count on video intercoms to secure virtually any facility, whether it’s a remote water pump station, a pharmaceutical manufacturing plant or a multitenant apartment building. Intercoms add a valuable layer of security by letting employees or residents control who enters their facilities.
Moving further into buildings and operations
Winning more business is typically thought of as using marketing, advertising, referrals, or even cold calls and precision pitching to secure new opportunities at new clients. When it comes to physical security integration, there are after all, only so many doors to secure in your area of operation.
