Top 2010 Trends from Securing New Grounds

Author: John Honovich, Published on Nov 10, 2009

Securing New Ground, a conference on the business of security has picked 3 top trends that are likely to underperform in 2010.

According to Sandra Jones, the 3 key trends for 2010 are:

  • SaaS
  • the Internet
  • Remote Video Verification
While all of these are certainly important overarching trends, the practical impact of SaaS and remote video verification is likely to be limited in 2010.  The practical problem is lack of support by mainstream products. 
 
Despite the hype, remote video verification still requires either adding in new products or undertaking an IT project to connect the on-site video systems to off-site central monitoring systems. Until mainstream DVRs/VMS can plug and play connect with central monitoring systems, use of remote video verification will remain a niche.
 
Product growth in SaaS is far more significant than video verification but still almost none of these solutions are mature enough to make a difference in the mass market. The biggest impact should be for the home/SMB market but it will still be a small overall force next year.
