We are on the verge of a crisis in Cyber Hygiene. Not only are millions of IoT devices (like physical security cameras) unprotected and vulnerable, the methods to harden and protect them (sustainable cyber hygiene) have often been done manually and require physical presence onsite. Automated solutions like Viakoo can help change this dynamic.
Many organizations are implementing, or have already implemented, cloud-based physical security services to supplement or replace instances of on-premises software and processing. The trend to make everything into “as-a-Service” has brought us popular cloud services including CRM systems such as Salesforce, communication systems such as GoToMeeting, and shared storage such as Box. Security systems “as-a-Service” are also rapidly growing, including cloud-based identity management, access control, and video surveillance, among others. With more than 20,000 cloud services available, consumers and businesses alike have quickly become accustomed to their advantages, including greatly improved access from any connected location, and greatly improved collaboration with other contributors.
