Yesterday, following the International Security Conference (ISC) West that took place in Las Vegas, Nevada last week, Citi released an industry overview report, Feeling More Secure.In it, Citi expresses surprise that the security sector was utilising cloud applications for storage. The report said:  

Biggest Surprise: Clouds in forecast — We were impressed with how pervasive cloud computing and data storage has become in these security markets. There were at least a dozen booths showcasing new systems enabling video image storage using cloud applications.

While ISC focused more specifically at residential security, this week’s Government Security Conference & Expo is going to focus on homeland security. Three of the announced sessions will also focus on cloud applications.

  • Eye on the Cloud: Transitioning Physical Security Systems to IP
  • Building the Cloud Contingency Plan: Lessons Learned
  • Solutions theatre Presentation – Disaster Recovery and the Cloud

It seems that both the security sector as well as the homeland security agencies are embracing cloud computing.
