Advanced Surveillance Technologies are Changing the Game.
Businesses and organizations around the world, in all industries and verticals, rely on modern video surveillance solutions to keep people safe and to drive better business outcomes.
New and evolving video capabilities like facial recognition on high-resolution cameras enable security teams to quickly respond to emergencies and security incidents. However, these technologies also put significant demands on outdated storage platforms that can’t deliver the speed and performance that’s most critical at the time of an incident.
This shift to more advanced camera technologies has many security teams scrambling to meet their service level commitments. What’s more, these advanced surveillance technologies combined with changes in regulatory requirements are pushing outdated solutions to the breaking point.
In response, organizations are increasing their budgets for video surveillance in an effort to provide enhanced security while future-proofing their infrastructure. For state and local governments and educational institutions, IT budget spend for video surveillance has grown by 5.8 percent year-over-year and is projected to reach $107 billion. Additionally, the 2019 estimated technology spend for public safety comes in at just under $10 billion.
The Best Partners Enable the Best Solutions
While budgets are increasing, the cost and requirements of traditional video surveillance solutions are also on the rise. High-resolution video means more data is collected by cameras, which means storage costs also increase. To make sure your video surveillance system doesn’t break the bank while still providing excellent security, you need a best-of-breed system that’s efficient, scalable and cost-effective.
