IFSEC Global.com and Buffalo Technology are pleased to release the findings of their 2013 CCTV & Video Surveillance Storage Solutions Survey. The survey provides insights into how much storage people are using in their business, and how much pressure video surveillance data is putting on their systems and the need to expand their storage solutions. It also covers ease of access to surveillance data - a critical element in speed of investigation into an incident.
Working environments are changing – and rapidly so. Among others, this is caused by the Internet and social media. These facilitate real-time communication and collaboration. When it comes to large-scale IT networks, customers, business partners and financing partners alike all expect a proven high level of IT security. Furthermore, today's business processes frequently involve video sources as well as documents and images.
Today’s small and mid-sized businesses operate in the same mission-critical environment as their enterprise competitors. And like big businesses, SMBs also have to handle large volumes of data, and maintain the highest levels of uptime - every day and around the clock.
