The security industry is always on the move and those looking to stay extra secure are always going to keep a look out for what is new and useful. Even the most basic of technologies will evolve and grow and the best thing you can do for your company is to make sure that you stay ahead of the game.
Sophisticated security technology comprises of both cybersecurity as well as the conventional security that we’ve come to know and trust. Having a combination of both, especially if your company relies a lot on cyberspace to get work done, is the best route to take. And considering that you will more than likely be making a pretty decent financial investment in the technology that you choose to buy, it’s very important to stay on top of the industry must-haves.
Enough with the introduction, these are the emerging technologies that you should consider.
Biometric Security Technology
If you are serious about access control systems, there is a very good chance that you already have biometric access control. Traditional biometrics make use of fingerprints to grant a person access to a certain area but the latest technology is going beyond the fingerprint and therefore becoming a whole lot more effective. The field of biometrics is getting serious and companies at the forefront are going out of their way to create the kind of biometrics that are capable of mapping consumer behaviour to create an identification security process that goes beyond fingerprints. Dual step authentication is also becoming quite popular.
A Bigger Safety Net for Companies with Big Data
You’ll see this in just about every cyber-security article; data is invaluable. Companies who base most of their work online are at a huge risk especially as cybercrimes become more of an issue. Companies that have big data, as in large quantities, will need to analyse their data security every 6 months, in order to keep up to date with the latest developments.
Security for the Internet of Things
How often do you think about the devices you have? Laptops, tablets, smartphones and even desktops are all interconnected, which in turn makes each of them vulnerable. When once you might have worried about each device individually, you now have to consider the fact that each of your devices is likely to be interconnected, generally via an email address. This interconnectedness is known as the Internet of Things and you need to be aware of the dangers as well as the perks of this technology.
