Most businesses in Russia have physical security systems installed. But those often represent multiple unconnected applications and devices that don't communicate with each other which provides poor situational awareness and slows down response time. From the legislative perspective, all is fine as security systems have been deployed. But from the efficiency perspective, the human factor and the time of response remain a challenge. That is why a growing number of security managers in Russia is currently looking for ways to improve their investment performance instead of purchasing new hardware. Andrey Skvortsov, Director Business Development for Electronika (a leading Russian PSIM software platform manufacturer and a sponsor of All-over-IP 2019) has come up with his vision for the future of physical security in a digital economy.
