Benefits of a Cloud-based Security System for Businesses

Posted on August 24, 2020


As more companies leverage the power of the internet of things (IoT) to accommodate scalability initiatives and remote workforces, cloud-based application adoption continues to surge. Cloud security and infrastructure markets are especially attractive to modern business leaders.

The Considerable Advantages of a Cloud-based Security System 

Today’s cloud-based physical security systems offer businesses of all sizes the latest, and most flexible, technologies for superior protection from hacking and physical threats. A cloud-based security system offers several exceptional advantages to help small businesses make the most of their security budget.

1.  On-Demand Services 

Cloud-based security offers tailor-made services without considerable investment in fixed assets. You can easily scale services up — or down — as your business grows or as markets fluctuate. 

2. Stronger Security 

Cloud-based physical security brings you a higher standard of protection than is typical through your in-house IT department. For example, stronger measures to protect your data in the event of natural disasters, common errors, and power outages are assured using high-level disaster recovery plans and redundancy efforts.  

Also, cloud providers ensure that system updates and patches are completed as soon as the latest versions are available. 

3. Security Cameras for Every Application 

No matter your monitoring and protection focus, there’s a cloud-based security camera system solution. Cameras are available for motion detection purposes, night or low-light situations, or facial feature and license plate identification specifications.  

If you’d like to add on or switch out features based on need, cloud security enables easy adjustment options. 

4. Streamlined Storage 

With cloud-based storage of all streaming video, there is no need for costly, space-hogging, on-site servers. Substituting cloud for local storage offers convenience and cost-effectiveness. Also,  your video evidence is protected from physical theft or destruction.

5. Easy Installation and Control 

With a cloud-based security system, there’s no need for in-house IT assistance to install, maintain, or troubleshoot your system. New capabilities are seamlessly delivered through integrated tools and automated updates. 

Access can be granted — or revoked — by administrators on a 24/7 basis and monitoring is easy from any device connected to the internet. That means you can have the convenience of checking on operations from anywhere, at any time. Global datacenters keep your physical security in place, regardless of power outages or other potential disturbances.
