KST Innovation Day 2022: The Emergence of Cloud in the Physical Security Sector

27 September 2022 – National Space Centre, Leicester  At KST, we are constantly looking to push the boundaries of what technology can help us achieve.

So we asked ourselves: how can we make our security solutions more convenient, accessible and efficient for our customers? The answer is through the Cloud.

Cloud-based technology is an umbrella term for a variety of online platforms such as data storage, servers, databases, applications, and networks which are remotely hosted on the Internet instead of on physical storage devices like computer hard-drives.

What does this mean for your business?

Remotely hosted software offers you greater control and independence in managing your estate’s CCTV and Access Control systems. It means you can have access to the information you need from anywhere at any time, without needing to rely on 3rd parties.

Cloud-based solutions have become incredibly popular and it’s easy to see why. Cloud technology has been proven to enhance the security of your data by utilising the most up-to-date data protection and data back-up approaches, all whilst eliminating the need for physical infrastructure.

Migrating to the Cloud could mean significant cost savings to your business. Research suggests that company’s adopting Cloud technology could make cost savings of up to 15% due to significant improvements to workplace productivity.

One of the most important benefits to Cloud technology is the ability for your employees to work together simultaneously on the same platform, even if they are working at home or out of the office, which has never been more crucial to businesses looking to thrive in an increasingly interconnected world.

If you want to:

  • Access your information from anywhere at any time
  • Improve your data security and disaster recovery capabilities
  • Enhance your team’s productivity and promote collaboration in your business
  • Enjoy automatic software updates and upgrades
  • Gain greater control over your estate

​Then cloud-based solutions may be the next step for your business.
