Security Solutions Get Physical
While IT organisations are more commonly concerned with virtual data security, physical security solutions such as access control, biometric authentication and IP-based surveillance are increasingly moving into the IT department’s domain.
Physical security solutions are coming to fore as part of authentication processes to reduce the issue of poor practice by end users.
In this day and age we’re regularly reminded about our virtual security and keeping passwords secure etc., but it’s just as important not to overlook physical security, which can be as much, if not more, of a threat to businesses. Physical security solutions such as biometrics, access control and IP-based security are seeing a rise in uptake in the Middle East as leading companies increase their focus on security. There is a growing end user awareness of the ROI that security systems offer,
and the region continues to see investment across a wide number of sectors including airports, logistics, government, oil and gas, and transport.
