When you choose Shergroup Security as your integrated security provider, you are choosing a company with heritage and integrity.

The security sector is always changing as new technologies are introduced and client needs change across industries. Security operations are being transformed by new technology and digital solutions, but the role of security is changing as well. Businesses around the globe need to think about security and what solutions they require today and in the future. Of these trends, there are six key shifts that, together, indicate a new security landscape.

Let us dive into the new security trends |

Today’s security measures, albeit with limitations, tend to focus on access control. Many organisations, for example, know how many people have arrived but not how many have departed a secure site. Consider the impact of a 360-degree view of a facility that reveals who is inside, where they are, and what they are doing. Real-time headcounts with specific locations can save time and make a vital difference in an emergency case, such as a fire, earthquake, or active shooter situation.

From buildings to people

Only securing physical places is no longer sufficient. Today’s executives acknowledge the need to secure the corporation and its employees wherever they are as more people work from home or other non-company places. Because security staff are becoming more mobile and may not work in the sites they protect, having smooth mobile access is critical. There’s also a desire to make access easier while maintaining security. Employees don’t want to deal with the trouble of carrying several fobs, cards, and badges, which can be misplaced and cause traffic congestion. Biometrics and face recognition are being considered by businesses as solutions for granting access based on who someone is rather than what they’re carrying.

From forensics to prevention

Rather than proactively lowering risk, many firms still devote significant security resources to responding to incidents. Employee vigilance is imperfect at best, and it necessitates ongoing training, monitoring, auditing, and re-education. While many businesses are collecting more data, they are having difficulty interpreting it quickly enough to avoid incidents. Organizations are looking for simple-to-use solutions that direct security staff to precise actions before an incident occurs, such as algorithms that generate alerts for certain places or behaviours.

From cutting-edge to good enough

Cutting-edge technology is appealing, but it is impractical. Some residents are hesitant to utilise biometric readers that require touching because of the ongoing pandemic, while firms are hesitant to debut new technologies in lightly inhabited premises. Other solutions are overly sensitive, triggering alerts so frequently that they become background noise. Businesses are seeking for what is viable, practical, and straightforward to implement rather than what is cutting-edge. Leaders seek scalable solutions that work with their existing infrastructure. They want actionable warnings and analytics that automatically extract usable information from large amounts of data. They also want upgrades that make sense as their companies grow.

From stuff to service

New security choices may allow budgets to move from product purchases to problem-solving services. Infrastructure as a service is gaining popularity in various industries since it often lowers costs and allows businesses to focus on their goal. It’s also a low-cost approach to keep up with rapidly changing hardware and software, which is a major worry for security networks. Some businesses, however, prefer to own their equipment because of potential tax benefits, customization opportunities, and privacy concerns. The ideal answer might be a hybrid of security as a service and DIY security, with companies being able to pick and choose what is owned and what is a service, moving smoothly between the two as circumstances dictate.

From independent to integrated

It’s time to move on from discrete solutions’ compatibility issues. Leaders are looking for components that not only work well together, but also share information. Security components should be easy to integrate and function with non-security systems, regardless of brand. Security cameras in a retail establishment, for example, could be used as learning tools on the shop floor. They can provide operational perspectives that drive process changes, such as identifying when consumers are waiting too long at checkout, in addition to aiding fraud protection methods. Organizational efficiencies and savings could be improved by sharing information across divisions.


Over the last decade business leaders have started investing a lot in security. Be it cyber security, physical security, security of their assets or their employees. There has been a shift from using traditional security measures to the new age security solutions. Shergroup strongly recommends commercial business owners who have not yet considered hiring security services for their business to think again and invest in it. As having a good security presence not only minimises risk, but also  supports growth, that eventually helps you run your business operations smoothly.
