CoreWillSoft made a significant mark at The Security Event in Birmingham, held from the 25th to the 27th of April 2023. The UK-native exhibition, particularly designed for integrators and channel partners, offered us an outstanding platform to engage in productive exchanges and deepen our understanding of the UK’s evolving security landscape.
As a leading name in the industry, CoreWillSoft is committed to staying at the forefront of emerging trends. The Security Event provided an ideal opportunity to interact with experts, share our expertise, and explore the best integrable solutions for the current security challenges.
UK Security Trends: Observations and Insights
The exhibition shed light on several key trends in the UK’s security industry. These trends play a pivotal role in our strategic planning and product development.
1. Online Access Control & wireless locks. While offline locks are gaining importance providing huge cabling savings, they are mainly connected, i.e., wireless online. Hubs that connect directly to the control panel over RS485 using OSDP are the leading integratable solutions in this area.
2. Rising Security System Integrations: The integration between physical security systems has seen exponential growth. These integrations mainly follow two streams:
- pure security use-cases
- added value integrations, customised to a company’s business processes.
In the latter scenario, workflows are becoming more critical than ever, emphasising the need for solutions that seamlessly adapt to unique business needs.
3. Mobile Credential Evolution: The mobile credential space is swiftly gravitating towards NFC and native Wallets such as Apple Wallet, Google Wallet, and Samsung Wallet. BLE credentials, on the other hand, are finding their niche in specific applications, such as parking cases.
4. The Cloud Transition: Access is increasingly moving to the cloud, or at least starting to offer a cloud option. This trend is driven by the demands of small and mid-size businesses that seek the scalability and flexibility that cloud solutions provide. However, the enterprise sector remains conservative in this regard, highlighting the need for hybrid solutions that can cater to diverse needs.
At CoreWillSoft, we firmly believe in staying ahead of the curve by understanding and responding to these trends. Our presence at The Security Event in Birmingham served as a testament to this commitment. As we continue to innovate and grow, we look forward to offering our partners and clients the most cutting-edge, tailored solutions that address the evolving security needs in an increasingly interconnected world.
