American Direct In The News: SDM Magazine
In SDM magazine’s September issue, American Direct’s CIO, Jerry Glynn, provided expert insights into the trends affecting enterprise customers.
Karyn Hodgson, SDM’s managing editor, covers the five big trends affecting enterprise customers who often have unique needs and approaches to security: mobile credentials, the cloud, big data, IOT or IOE, and cybersecurity.
In regards to the Internet of Everything, Glynn said, “Access control systems need to evolve into a platform to manage the Internet of Everything (IoE). To be effective at this, it is essential that these systems connect to the IoT and have the ability to collect and correlate data of ‘big data’ type capabilities.
“The world is increasingly becoming connected over wireless networks and devices embedded in everything. This trend will result in a ‘tipping point’ where it will be possible to easily connect to and communicate with almost anything in our environment.”
