Enabling Security to Better Respond to a Multiple Threats Environment
The Security ecosystem is embracing the digital transformation across multiple applications with an aim to improve operational efficiency and modernize legacy systems. This study covers the digital solutions market penetration in public safety, critical infrastructures and governments.
Frost & Sullivan Security Digital Transformation analysis assesses the various levels of adoption when it comes to the Internet of Things, Cloud Computing, Big Data, Data Analytics, Machine Learning, Augmented Reality and the Blockchain. With an aim to define what a digital solution is per se, this report explores what are the benefits to embrace digital platforms in security missions. In that regard, the includes security uses cases and programs across different regions to highlight various penetration rates and discrepancies amongst security end-users depending on operating segments and relevance to security applications.
If resistance to change and security concerns are the biggest challenges slowing down market adoption of digital solutions, especially in Western regions, these new technologies are still perceived as essential to overcome operational pain points, from crime prevention to better evidence management, persistence surveillance and threat detection, information sharing and greater collaboration between diverse agencies.
The access to a bigger volume of valuable intelligence from embedded sensors, video surveillance, body worn cameras and smart devices, such as tablets, glasses or watches, drives security forces to upgrade obsolete IT infrastructures. Besides, it is critical for the security forces adopt the relevant tools to efficiently handle, securely store and analyse these data to directly improve operation success, critical infrastructure resilience, identify sources of savings and adopt more adequate resources planning and risk management plans.
Nevertheless, not every industry player is in a position to deliver adequately digital solutions to the security ecosystem. This is another consequence of the security digital transformation: industry incumbents are facing market entrance of non-traditional players. Amongst these new entrants, digital champions such as Amazon Web Services, Google, Microsoft, IBM or Dell EMC are slowly paving their way. Additionally, smaller players from start-ups to unicorns are also increasing their market footprint when it comes to predictive analytics or innovative cyber solutions.
This more diverse competitive landscape is also impacting traditional business patterns and solutions provision, with a gradual interest towards “Security on demand” and solutions delivered under the “Software as a Service” format.
