Securing Data Centers from the Inside Out

By the end of 2013, the world’s datasphere had grown to approximately 4.3 zettabytes large. By 2018, as artificial intelligence, smart devices, streaming services, cryptocurrency, 4G and other data-heavy applications exploded—the size of the world’s datasphere swelled sevenfold to 33 zettabytes. Come 2025, the International Data Corporation (IDC) predicts the world’s datasphere to swell to 175 zettabytes.

Subscription-based service models are increasing in the security industry. Shifting to video subscription as a service (VSaaS) or SaaS in general involves changing the mindset that one is receiving a service rather than a product. What end users want is a system that is always current rather than a product that can quickly become out of date or is not functional when it matters most.

Leveraging Surveillance
