Cyber’s Role in a Physical Security World
Puzzled by the networking know-how needed to deliver a ‘complete’ security solution these days? Enlisting IT managed service providers can enhance your value proposition and RMR potential with commercial customers.
Cybersecurity, and all the challenges that come with it, looms large over the physical electronic security industry.
“A different kind of expertise is now needed from security integrators“, notes Bill Bozeman, president and CEO of PSA Security Network. “Our traditional community of integrators are comfortable with due diligence on traditional security products and the vast majority are very IT savvy and so good at what they do,” says Bozeman. “But many integrators are going to struggle with cybersecurity. It’s not simply deploying a device on a network anymore, and it’s no longer the kind of system they’re so adept at deploying.”
The nature of today’s risks is constantly evolving, making managing cybersecurity an even tougher task for security integrators getting involved in it.
Consequently, we’re seeing a sharp increase in demand for IT managed service providers (MSPs), whose expertise more integrators are turning to in order to deliver comprehensive security solutions to end users.
