One of the biggest obstacles security integrators face when deploying Layer 2 and Layer 3 high availability network infrastructures are restricted resources, whether it's because they don't have a large volume of network infrastructure or lack the network engineers needed to deploy these types of environments. As a result, security integrators can only take on a limited number of projects, in turn affecting their bottom line.

What Security Integrators Should Know About Network Architecture

What Security Integrators Should Know About Network Architecture  Logo

Selecting the wrong type of architecture for a project can prove to be a costly mistake for the security integrator, especially if a project uses a centralized architecture approach only to find out later that the network infrastructure is not robust enough to filter all the video data into a centrally located data center. Or, if leasing additional fiber lines proves cost prohibitive.

3 Important Costs Security Integrators Should Factor into ROI  Logo

As with running any business, the cost to run a security company can be expensive. Payroll, fleet costs, tools, and equipment, along with rent and business technology, quickly add up and if not budgeted and monitored properly can affect the bottom line. Integrators also have to keep close tabs on the overall costs associated with the types of security systems they install. This can also impact the profitability of a company, especially if a system does not work as promised. It then becomes the problem for the security integrator to resolve.

Reduce Risk With Guaranteed Bandwidth and Storage Calculations

Reduce Risk With Guaranteed Bandwidth and Storage Calculations  Logo

As the complexity of systems in the security market grows, it remains critical to ensure that your technology solution partners not only provide the best resources and smart tools but also guarantees on how the system will operate. Demands for greater bandwidth and storage needs, along with end users who want to continuously swap out cameras as prices decrease and megapixel capacity increases, have placed increasing strain on systems integrators to get their bandwidth and storage calculations correct.

Why Security Integrators Should Make 5-years Standard

Why Security Integrators Should Make 5-years Standard  Logo

Security Integrators should be the first call if there is an issue - any issue - at the project site. Time spent analyzing the issue, and potentially repairing the system is usually non-billable, as there is likely a performance contract in place. Regardless of advanced and sometimes complex technology, customers expect quick fixes. Downtime not only creates potential liabilities, compliance delinquency but can significantly impact business revenue. This criticality puts even greater pressure on security integrators, who assume the risk, to be onerous and responsive.

Unlock Unmatched Data Protection with the Keep Your Hard Drive Warranty

Unlock Unmatched Data Protection with the Keep Your Hard Drive Warranty  Logo

As new data recovery technologies become more sophisticated, confidential information stored on malfunctioning hard drives has never been more vulnerable to third-party exploitation. Typical warranties request failed hard drives be returned to the manufacturer during replacement. This leaves customers with a difficult choice to make: risk sensitive data falling into the wrong hands or keep your hard drive - a practice that may violate many existing standard warranty agreements.
