Solutions Spotlight

Dec. 12, 2016

By Vince Ricco

Business Development Manager, Technology Partner Program

Axis Communications, Inc. 

When it comes to cybersecurity the world falls into two camps: those focused on securing their hardware and applications as a closed system and those who recognize that converging technologies calls for a more ecosystem-centric approach. My early days in the world of physical security systems – especially in video surveillance – initially planted me firmly in the first camp. But as I’ve watched the migration from analog to IP-based technology and the accelerated convergence of technologies on a shared backbone I’ve shifted my views. In this new IoT ecosystem, every cybersecurity measure that manufacturers and integrators put into play can impact every other device and application on the network. So it’s imperative that the synergy between systems and devices not only happens on an operational level, but also on a cybersecurity level.
