The global security industry is witnessing a paradigm shift. No longer are businesses confined to traditional, premise-based security systems. The horizon of possibilities has expanded dramatically with the onset of cloud-based security solutions. Secom, which has been installing security systems in the cloud since 2004, stands at the forefront of this change, heralding a safer, more efficient era for businesses nationwide.

The Emergence of Cloud-Based Security

When security systems first came into existence, they were largely rooted in physical premises. These systems had several challenges – high maintenance costs, inherent scaling difficulties, and a lack of remote accessibility. Fast forward to the present, and we find that cloud-based security systems are revolutionizing how businesses approach safety and protection.

One of the most significant transformations in this landscape has been the ability of companies to eliminate proprietary hardware. At Secom, our non-proprietary cloud-based security systems provide flexibility that traditional systems simply cannot offer. Not only does this result in cost savings for the company, but it also guarantees future-proofing against the potential obsolescence of hardware components. We’ve offered this particular safeguard since opening our doors, and our competitors are arriving late to the game.

Cloud vs. Premise-Based: The Decisive Factors

While both cloud-based and premise-based systems have their merits, the distinguishing features of cloud security are unmistakable:

  • Remote Accessibility: With cloud-based security, authorized personnel can access security data and features from anywhere, anytime, ensuring continual surveillance and prompt response.
  • Scalability: Cloud solutions effortlessly scale to the growing needs of a business, allowing for seamless additions of devices and features.
  • Cost Efficiency: Without the need for proprietary hardware and constant on-site maintenance, cloud systems prove to be more budget-friendly in the long run.
  • Up-to-date Protections: Being in the cloud means automatic updates and patches, ensuring that security systems are always protected against the latest threats.

According to a recent IPVM report, it is evident that cloud-based security, by offering unique advantages, is pushing traditional premise-based systems towards obsolescence. The versatility, ease of use, and scalability offered by the cloud are simply unparalleled. And while other security vendors are just now beginning to realize its importance, Secom has been leveraging the cloud to satisfy customers for literal decades.
