2022 Industry Trend Spotlight: Security as a Competitive Advantage

Traditionally, security solutions were installed as a defense and deterrent to crime, but now, organizations are looking to leverage these solutions as a competitive advantage. Hear from STANLEY Chief Technology Officer Charlie Erickson on what he sees as approaching security as a competitive advantage. 

The following is an excerpt from STANLEY Security's 2022 Industry Trends Report.

"Now more than ever, security technologies are central to an organization’s ability to thrive in an increasingly complex world that demands smarter, more efficient solutions to a whole host of business challenges. Add to that equation the desire – or, rather, the pressure – to do more with less, and we’re seeing a boom of interest in how to leverage security technologies to unlock powerful business insights and outputs. Organizations’ goals range from driving efficiencies and optimizing real estate to addressing health and safety requirements and fueling ESG initiatives – all of which can be powered by an integrated, data-driven security ecosystem." –Charlie Erickson, Chief Technology Officer, STANLEY Security
