Cybersecurity and physical security used to be distinctly different industries, always treated as separate systems within a given business.
For healthcare organizations, there are two things to consider when relying on in-place information technology systems for access control. The first is ease of use and the second is security.
Video surveillance technology has advanced in leaps and bounds over the past decade. Long gone are the days of grainy CCTV that was only useful as long as someone physically sat there and watched. These days, digital security cameras take full advantage of our hyper-connected, digital world. Leveraging sophisticated tech such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, and infrared lighting, security cameras have evolved into a potent frontline intrusion detection tactic. However, one company, known as Mobotix, stands out from the rest.
Video security is everywhere. From parking lots to facilities, the technology has evolved into a powerful tool to maintain visibility and control of an environment. However, with all of that security comes hours upon hours of recorded video – far too much for a single person to review manually. Enter video security analytics: software which helps security professionals review, analyze, and evolve better security protocols from what’s been recorded.
Video surveillance used to be severely limited by technology. It was once confined to cramming as many screens as possible onto a wall and finding the optimum number of people to watch those screens. That made visitor management a chore, let alone keeping an eye on everything else that was happening.
