    Even if you’ve never played “Whack-A-Mole” you’ve probably heard it used as a metaphor for a repetitious and futile task.  In maintaining and servicing physical security systems there are a number of manual operations that fall in that category that are better done with automation; checking that default passwords aren’t being used, verifying operational status across multiple sites and/or device vendors, and maintaining an inventory of devices on the physical security network just to name a few.  Since there are more than one “Whack-A-Mole” situations our industry deals with I’ll be more specific – the topic of this blog is a situation Viakoo calls “Console Madness”.  If you want to stop reading and just see our new infographic on Console Madness please click here – otherwise continue on to see the Madness I’m referring to.

    Every organization has differences in how they accomplish their job, which can be thought of as tradeoffs. Restaurant A might choose to open early for breakfast, trading off the additional employee expenses for ability to gain higher revenues and profits.

    Some industries, such as nuclear energy and securities trading, are long accustomed to regulation, compliance, and auditing. In recent years, though, increased regulation and protections have been implemented in broad new areas including medical records and credit card transactions, among others.
