Impact of Machine to Machine on security technology addressed in Vodafone M2M white paperVodafone M2M recently launched a white paper for the security market focused on the impact of M2Min three security applications – alarm systems, CCTV, and asset tracking.

Technology for business security has evolved rapidly, creating new possibilities for securing businesses and their assets against theft, fire and other risks – exceptions to this include CCTV for monitoring and alarms for perimeter protection, which haven’t changed.

Traditional security methods, such as CCTV, don’t secure assets as well as most modern methods – Criminals can cut cables to CCTV cameras and alarms to disable them; target remote locations where it’s impractical to install phone lines to connect cameras and alarms; take advantage of alarms and cameras going unmonitored.

An estimated 75% of Europe’s 30 million alarms are totally unmonitored, according to Berg Insight; target assets when they’re on trucks and vans, away from the protection of the site perimeter – In order to prevent crimes taking place, security providers need to focus on a new approach.
