With recent advancements in cloud technology and the increasing demand for remote work, more and more organisations and businesses consider migrating their physical infrastructure and video security into the cloud. The Video Surveillance Report 2020 from IFSEC Global revealed that 44% of security professionals are now using cloud-based tech in their surveillance systems. By storing data in the cloud (rather than on-site equipment), users can remotely access, preview/playback their video footages and manage related devices from anywhere via the internet.

Due to the numerous benefits of cloud technology, cloud-based solutions like Video Surveillance as a Service (VSaaS) is evolving rapidly, with increasing popularity among Small and Medium-sized Business (SMB) users and organisations seeking to upgrade their traditional server-based video security systems. According to Marketsandmarkets, the VSaaS market is expected to grow from USD 2.2 billion in 2020 to USD 4.7 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 16.0% between 2020 and 2025. These data suggests that this kind of cloud-based video monitoring solution is set to accelerate in the coming years.

VSaaS: An ideal choice for SMB

The platform-centric VSaaS greatly reduces user’s costs, simplifies application management, and makes surveillance monitoring infrastructure more flexible and extensible. It is more cost-effective than traditional video security solutions because users can share costs over the life of the contract and only pay for the services they actually use. For small and medium-sized enterprises that lack IT construction funds and professional personnel, VSaaS can help them quickly build and configure their own systems, as well as operate and maintain independently and conveniently without the hassle of installing an on-site server. Moreover, its strong scalability allows them to quickly expand their solution based on their business development needs.
