With CEOs in the United States placing cybersecurity as their main worry – even ahead of a recession, it’s clear that tight security should play a role in every business. However, when it comes to the latest innovative technology, there are many ways that security has improved greatly, both for online and physical premises.
Whether you’re new to the business industry or have been a part of it for some time, here are some new security technologies you might want to consider looking into the next time you’re looking for an upgrade.
Surveillance has come a long way
Integrating a surveillance camera system is a common way that many businesses protect themselves when it comes to physical premise security. However, these cameras have come a long way, from increasing the image quality to adding new and modern features in terms of the tech involved. For example, with smartphone integration, you can easily get notified of any movement detection, even if you’re miles away from the office. This can enhance your security experience by allowing you to monitor your business in real-time, as well as keeping you stress free and in the know of what’s going on.
However, newer technology has even taken it a step further with facial recognition software, which can allow you to create a database of familiar faces, such as employees, along with the benefits of being able to identify those who are responsible for a crime in a much easier way.
When it comes to technological advances in terms of cybersecurity, artificial intelligence can be a game changer when it comes to keeping a business’s sensitive information safe from hackers. For example, artificial intelligence can help a business by working to detect certain anomalies or patterns that can identify potential threats in the security system, which would otherwise be extremely difficult for a human to do.
Not only that, but it can also respond to the threat much more quickly too. Not only is this incredibly helpful, but a shocking 61% of enterprises say that they can’t detect threats without the help of this technology, proving just how effective it can be.
With many businesses converting to online information storage to store large amounts of valuable data, it comes as no surprise that much of that data is stored in a cloud, thus making cloud security an absolute necessity for those who choose to use it. However, with security threats becoming more and more complex, even the cloud can become at risk for breaches, especially since it’s expected to continually grow and evolve in the coming years.
For that reason, Netskope predicts that by 2020, 60% of large enterprises will use a more complex solution called a Cloud Access Security Broker (or CASB), a type of security policy enforcement point that can monitor all activity as well as actively enforce security policies.
Security is perhaps one of the most important aspects of any business. By knowing about the latest and greatest technological innovations, you can keep your business’ security systems up to date and as safe as possible.
