5 Growing Industries in the Security Sector

Each year companies look back and determine what went well, what didn’t, where improvements are made, and what trends they should keep their eye on for the future. New technologies are sometimes ahead of the security industry designed to use them. For example, Blockchain is a continuous list of records, calls blocked that are connected by cryptography. The company continues to develop new ideas but has come back attacked through vulnerabilities.

The security sector's responsibility is to provide protection to the companies and individuals against theft and larger crimes. The entire objective of the security industry is too provide security as a shared good. The industry is the equal laws, rule, and regulations as the other public sectors, through clear, responsible policies and procedures.

New technologies are introduced in the security industry. Here are five growing industries to keep an eye on in the security sector:

1 Cybersecurity

Cybersecurity is the procedure of protecting computers, networks, programs, and data from illegal access aimed for misuse. Network security is the activities to provide defense for the usability, reliability, integrity, and safety of the networks.

Cyber-attacks will remain a major threat to businesses. As our devices are connected to a network, the reach of being hacked continues to grow, so does the cybersecurity technology to combat these issues. Devices such as DVRs/NVRs, servers, video cameras alarms, and smart sensors that can connect to networks are vulnerable, which has caused manufacturers to build added cybersecurity into their products.

2. Secure Doorbells

Secure doorbells or video doorbells are a newer technology that has become the first line of security for yourself. Secure doorbells are video retrieved from a mobile app that is used to install the device, configure wireless settings, and set-up alerts. They offer homeowners security by allowing them to see and speak with the person outside. The doorbells also can record footage of anyone that comes up to your door while you are away or can’t answer the door. Secure doorbells usually use wi-fi to stream the live video to your phone.

3. Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP)

Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) is a technology used to make phone calls through any internet- connect a device with a microphone and speakers. Chances are you have used a VoIP technology, even if you haven't heard of it. Examples of VoIP technologies are Whatsapp, Google Phone, Google Group Chat, FaceBook Video and Voice Chat, and Skype.

4. Mobile Video Guard

Mobile video guard relates technology with law enforcement skilled surveillance agents that provides your site with a security measure that can cost less than security guard services. Mobile video guard can provide security to construction sites, equipment and material yards, utility infrastructure, and scrap and recycling yards with monitored video surveillance systems.

This monitoring technology service saves you valuable revenue and resourcefully addresses security concerns.

5.Revolution of authentication

As our use of digital technologies and online use grows, so does security and privacy on these interactions. We store a huge amount of data on our phones, and although we use passwords and verification for identification purposes, there is still not enough protection again guaranteeing your data and information stays safe.

There is new authentication technology to look out for, such as Identity-as-a-service (IDaaS) an authentication foundation built, hosted, and managed by a third-party service provider. Fast Identity Online (FIDO), uses vocal recognition, which is being accepted as a more secure way of protecting your information over a password.

Final Thoughts

Specialists predict that by 2020, more than 200 billion devices will be connected to the internet. That’s 200 billion devices streaming and broadcasting data over the networks. Obtaining this amount of data could have a beneficial impact on lowering cybercrimes and thefts.

Changes to the security system can take time, and the public has to execute any new security technologies as a group, which involves a timely bureaucratic process. The issue is that by the time a new technology has gone through laws and regulations and is approved, hackers, criminals, and thieves have already adapted to the security technologies, and can figure out ways around them. Unfortunately, not all the security technology is going to keep someone out of your data, home or construction site, but it does help deter, and get information to catch these criminals.
