Security threats in the world today can often be more severe than in the past. A single break-in could wreak havoc on your business, from threatening lives to causing the loss of property and breach of personal data. Thanks to the advanced technology of cloud video surveillance, you can reduce these threats. By using the new cloud security solutions available today, you can enhance the safety of your business and workplace much easier than in the past. For multi-location businesses, the cloud offers a more affordable and interactive approach to security than ever before.
Security cameras are an essential part of any security system, as they allow you to identify any intruders. They also act as a deterrent to many potential burglars who don’t want to be caught on camera. However, with a traditional security system, you are limited in the ways that you can access the footage and store it.
With a cloud security system, you can instantly access a live feed of your building at any point during the day from any computer or mobile device. This makes it easy to tune in during known incidents to observe and identify potential issues. Additionally, if your business is comprised of several buildings, you can monitor and control them all at once at much lower cost than housing an internal network or servers to manage and store video footage.
Even with real time footage, you may need to go back and review certain periods of time after the fact. With a cloud-based recording system, this process is as easy as logging in to your secure database and clicking on the desired footage. Storing security footage on your internal servers means you might have to worry about running out of space and increased ongoing costs, but cloud storage hands that burden off on the vendor.
Cyber-security risks are also much higher with local systems. Cloud providers typically will take on the bulk of risk management, and they use an average of 80% of their resources managing cyber-security, compliance, and IT issues, while most businesses may not have the capital or resources for these stringent requirements.
Perhaps one of the best features of cloud security is the ability to streamline and simplify user entrance permissions. In the past, employees may have needed to carry several ID badges or keycards around to verify their credentials and gain access to the building.
With a cloud based access control system, all of these permissions can be generated by using a mobile app. This eliminates the need for costly card readers and time-consuming badge production for every new employee. A new employee can be added to the system or deleted easily from any computer or mobile device.
