SAN MATEO, Calif., June 4, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Verkada, a pioneer in cloud-based physical security solutions, today shared the results of its 2024 State of Cloud Physical Security report. Based on insights from IT and physical security leaders across various sectors, the findings look at current trends, insights, and challenges within the industry as it transitions from on-premises setups to cloud-based ones.


Key findings of the Verkada 2024 State of Cloud Physical Security report include:

  • A growing consensus on cloud-based future. Over 90 percent of security leaders agree the future of physical security lies in cloud-based solutions, which will enable organizations to implement greater scalability, real-time alerting, and AI capabilities.
  • High cloud transition intentions and urgent adoption timelines. 7 in 10 respondents expect to increase their spending on physical security systems in 2025, which aligns with the finding that 75 percent of security leaders are planning to transition to the cloud within the next 12 months, with 96 percent aiming to complete this transition within the next 18 months.
  • Shifting attitudes on cyber readiness. 9 in 10 respondents believe cloud security improved over the past five years and will ensure data is fully protected during transmission and storage, effectively guarding against risks such as data leakage and illegal access.
  • Integration of Artificial Intelligence (AI) to security solutions is essential. Over 80 percent of security leaders think AI-based video analytics, such as automated alerts and predictive modeling, will have a major impact on the future of proactive physical security postures.
