Whether you’ve just started your business or you’re looking to launch one, security needs to be part of your business plan. More and more businesses are falling prey to identity and data breaches, including government entities. If that wasn’t enough, you also need to worry about physical breaches to your business. Luckily, technology in the security sector has continued to improve and innovate. To make sure your business is protected, consider these security technology advances that can benefit you.
Video Surveillance with Access Controls
This level of security basically consists of two different types working together. On the one hand, you have surveillance. This can immediately identify any potential criminal that is seeking to do damage to your business. On the other hand, you have access controls. This limits the number of people who have clearance on accessing parts of your business that can be deemed vital. By combining these two security technologies, you can ensure that if someone attempts to access something or somewhere they don’t have clearance for, the surveillance can immediately identify them for questioning or arrest.
Physical and Information Security
If you are looking to secure your business, your physical and information security should be combined. With everyone putting up defenses to prevent data breaches and identity theft, it’s only one more step to include a physical element to this as well. Not only does the inclusion of physical security further aid information security, but it also promotes protection overall as well.
Physical and information security should be combined to promote the maximum amount of safety and protection that a business can provide. Physical security limits the chances of someone who is pretending to be someone else being able to enter the business and access sensitive information. By limiting that chance, information security is also improved.

SMART Security Systems
With SMART technology on the rise, your business can also benefit in regard to security. Whether it is connected to surveillance, an alarm system, or even just protective software, SMART security systems basically offer you a chance to keep an eye on your business at all times. With its ability to be accessed via your smartphone, you can be immediately alerted in the event that someone accesses your building when they’re not supposed to.
