There is no “one size fits all” when it comes to selecting a cloud or on-premises solution for physical security needs. The future is hybrid - combining the best of cloud and on-prem systems. A recent survey by Genetec of physical security professionals noted an increase in the percentage of organizations moving to cloud-based or hybrid solutions. In 2020, 26% of physical security professionals said that one-fourth of their physical security environments were cloud-based or hybrid. In 2021, that number jumped to 40% of physical security professionals.
Throughout this session, we’ll review the pros and cons of both cloud-based and on-premises solutions from both an operational as well as technical perspective. Then we’ll discuss how a hybrid approach offers the best of both worlds for end customer environments and integrators designing these systems. Specifically, attendees will learn about the benefits of a hybrid model in terms of scalability, flexibility, cybersecurity, system maintenance, and overall resiliency.
