AISG celebrates ten years in business and looks to the cloud for continued growth in 2017.
After a very successful 2016, AISG begins 2017 celebrating our Ten Year Anniversary. It is an important milestone that the entire company shares in. People often ask the question, “How did you accomplish your success?” Since the company’s launch in 2007, the bar has been set very high for AISG to reach substantial revenue opportunities. To achieve these expectations you have to establish aggressive goals. In order to be a leader in the competitive security market, it requires having the ability to be diversified.
One secret to AISG successfully breaking into security is the different verticals we chose to target. Retail and critical infrastructure are two examples of industries that AISG serves well. You have to know your customers and listen. Address their needs and determine if what they are asking for is something you can accomplish. Do not make promises you cannot keep.
Following up with customers and excellent service is a huge key to AISG’s success. You cannot finish a project and disappear. You have to stay on top of customers and support them with all their requests. It is also all about technology. You have to have the right technology in place for the application.
The start of a new year is a time when you continue to look at your company as a whole to determine what direction to take in the future. You also think about the market, in general, to see what new technology can best benefit clients.
At AISG, products and technology are at the heart of what we do. This past year AISG experienced tremendous development in the identity and access management sector. IP video surveillance is another well established growth area for the company.
With these factors in mind, in 2017 AISG is focusing on delivering cloud applications that incorporate access control and video surveillance to meet the changing security needs of a wider base of end user customers. The company is putting plans in place for a full-fledged Managed Security Services program.
A major force driving the cloud Security as a Service (SaaS) market is an increasing need for operational efficiency.
Across various industry verticals, many clients are starting to move more of their applications into the cloud to reduce costs, streamline applications, improve management and increase scalability. A predictable monthly fee is also attractive since it allows you to manage operating expenses while getting the latest technology.
When it comes to video surveillance, cloud-based options offer advanced analytics and remote mobility at an economical cost. More and more customers are seeking this alternative. Since there are no hardware costs, you do not have to maintain the system or worry about updates.
Access Control as a Service provides similar benefits and is gaining in popularity. According to a new research report, “Access Control as a Service Market,” by MarketsandMarkets, growth is expected to reach USD 1,678.3 Million by 2022. Whether you need to control access at a single entry or an entire enterprise with many locations, managed access control fits the purpose without the hassles of having to acquire your own access control system.
