Technology Trends Set To Dominate The Security Sector In 2022

Technology Trends Set To Dominate The Security Sector

The pandemic forced companies to transition into remote working models, and many IT departments struggled under the pressure to overcome the resulting security challenges. With cyberattacks on the rise, there’s never been a more critical time for businesses to focus heavily on ensuring that their security technologies are robust.

In response to these challenges, tech companies have been innovating new and improved security technologies. Here are some of the key technology trends set to dominate the security sector in 2022.

Access control improvements

With everyone’s focus firmly set on improving ongoing hygiene measures to reduce the transmission of disease, touchless technologies are growing rapidly in popularity, particularly when it comes to access control systems.

Modern access control systems not only allow for superior access and security management, but they can also be coupled with touchless access tech such as automatic doors, gates, turnstiles, etc., for the ultimate streamlined contactless experience. 

In addition, installing access control systems with cloud-based technologies allows businesses to remotely manage their security in real-time. Coupled with business security camera solutions, firms can accurately leverage occupancy data to maximize health and safety.

Heightened focus on authentication

The increased use of IoT (Internet of things) devices - as well as an upturn in staff using their own devices - has led to an increase in attacks that focus on breaching data via individual employee devices. As a result, advanced authentication solutions, such as passwordless tech and multi-level verification, must come into play more as we move forwards.

Adoption of a zero-trust approach

To protect sensitive data, experts predict that a zero-trust approach will quickly become the norm for organizations - particularly those that continue to operate remotely. 

A zero-trust approach requires organizations to trust nothing and verify everything when it comes to devices and users. Then, working from the assumption that the network is hostile, access is only given to essential users, with permissions kept to a minimum.

Increased use of packaged solutions

Advancements in technology, coupled with the demands for improved security and hygiene that Covid-19 has brought with it, mean that security solutions are becoming more seamless than ever. 

Technologies are focused on simplifying security strategies and furthering digital transformation for smoother procedural experiences. The move towards seamless travel is a prime example, with many pandemic-related challenges being solved by new technologies, such as e-Passports and remote and touchless services, that all combine to create a contactless, easier, and more secure way to travel.

Physical and cyber security convergence

The increased focus on cyber security combined with the advancements in physical security-based technologies is creating a significant trend in businesses merging their physical and cyber security strategies. 

Physical and cyber security convergence enables companies to leverage data gleaned from combined security teams for maximum vulnerability insights. A heightened focus on implementing physical security systems in areas that house sensitive digital data is a growing trend in security measures, too.

Increased focus on protecting health-related data

A significant rise in the use of health-related device applications is leading to a crackdown in the way that health data is digitally handled. As a result, a stronger emphasis on health industry data sharing protocols is destined for 2022. The Federal Trade Commission recently announced stricter measures regarding the enforcement of data breach notifications across the health app sector.



Final thoughts

Many technological trends in the security sector currently revolve around the global shift towards remote and flexible work practices. Even as the pandemic loosens its grip over us, flexible work seems here to stay, and organizations must work hard to ensure that their security remains robust in the face of such an increased threat. Nevertheless, security technologies are advancing at just as fast a pace, offering many solutions that can bolster a company’s physical and cyber security.
