Savvy users of video surveillance technology are allowing security teams to do more with less, resulting in a rapid and demonstrable Return-On-Investment (ROI). Now with technology advances including better cameras, analytics, and IP protocols, the proactive capabilities of video surveillance are opening up, providing the opportunity to decrease costs through remote monitoring and managed services. For example:
• The increasingly popular approach of software as a service (SaaS), or cloud computing now includes Video-Surveillance-as-a-Service, ...
Traditionally, a company that implemented surveillance video had to identify, purchase and install the hardware, maintain the software (including upgrades), and set up and manage the storage of the video data itself. The company also had to establish protocols for monitoring, the review of tapes, access, etc. Managed video services have now changed that business landscape and have helped:
• Improve business practices while enhancing/streamlining security measures
• Reduced storage while improving ...
In order to meet the regulatory and security compliance mandates of CFATS, OSHA, and other agencies, businesses are demanding more and more of their video surveillance technology investment.
