Security Becoming a ‘Cloud’ Service as Well as a Physical One


Security services provided over the Internet are becoming known as cloud services, not just physical ones, the memoori blog advises.

Two key abbreviations are VSaaS (Video Surveillance as a Service) and ACaaS (Access Control as a Service).

“Existing owners of video surveillance and access control systems who will need to upgrade their operations in the next few years will no doubt pay serious consideration to cloud services”, memoori believes.

“Growth,” it adds, “should continue well into the next decade as prices fall and more end users turn to ‘security as a service’. VSaaS should deliver the most value across many applications. We have already noted that all of the world’s major IT companies are expanding their cloud services fast, including Amazon, Apple, Google and Microsoft, driven by the anticipated demand from a number of sources including ACaaS and VSaaS.”

“A major value proposition for clients is that VSaaS is continually monitored 24/7. Paying through a monthly service charge ensures failures are fixed promptly so reliability improves. This should ensure that the quality of the video is satisfactory for forensic purposes and that all aspects of usability, (like how do I retrieve the video and share it) are taken care of.”
