New Security Technologies

Posted by on

New security technologies over the years have greatly impacted different aspects of security solutions such as the image quality that can be captured and recorded by surveillance systems, accuracy and reliability of intrusion detection systems, validation and authorization methodologies used by access control systems and many other security solution features. These new security technologies tremendously influence security system designs across all industries. As new security technology emerges, it is critical that the security consultants, integrators, and end users understand the technology's attributes to properly incorporate new security technology into their solutions.

Numerous questions have recently been asked regarding the benefits of wide dynamic range and megapixel cameras, dealing with extreme back light, biometric access control devices, dual technology intrusion sensors and many other security technology advancements. The subsequent questions are inevitably:

  • What can these new security technologies do?
  • What are the best ways to implement them?

It is of vital importance to make educated decisions when it comes to security technology. After all, the goal is to protect that which you feel is valuable so properly designing your technical security defenses is critical.

The executive leadership of Orion Security Solutions has worked on 6 of the 7 continents around the globe serving in the Diplomatic Security Service for the US Department of State. We were responsible for the security of extremely sensitive facilities, including US Embassies, and for safeguarding national security and classified information. We gained a comprehensive understanding of various security technologies along with knowledge of the limitations and vulnerabilities of each. With this knowledge, Orion Security Solutions' experts understand how to keep things secure and what security technologies and solutions are best.

Orion Security Solutions is bringing our expert knowledge regarding new security technologies to the public in a dynamic way that we hope you will find refreshing. We intend to provide invaluable insight to security professionals and end users every Wednesday in our new blog entitled The O. Be sure to follow us each week as we explore the latest in security technologies.
