Cloud-Based Security

Security 101®’s cloud-based security solutions leverage the cloud infrastructure to create more flexible, scalable, reliable, and cost-effective security environments for businesses of all sizes. By using a cloud-based or hybrid framework, we can provide cloud-powered technologies, such as Access Control as a Service or cloud-based video surveillance, which can effectively mitigate sophisticated threats. Further, cloud security enables a centralized management interface and remote monitoring, facilitating efficient control and supporting the unification of disparate platforms, which results in reduced human errors, streamlined processes, and increased site safety.

The cloud — a remarkable tool to protect your business

Cloud-based technologies can mitigate several security challenges, solidify your security program, protect your people and assets, and provide peace of mind for your business.

Cloud-based physical security solutions offer a modern and efficient alternative for organizations to create a safer environment, centralize security operations and management, ensure adaptability, and offer real-time monitoring.

At Security 101, we know what it takes for your site to modernize and streamline security. We first take a differentiated approach that guarantees we are addressing your unique needs and wants, and then develop a plan to elevate the protection of your business. Guaranteed.

One of the technologies we might suggest for you is the cloud, as it provides unparalleled flexibility, seamless integration with other cloud-based services and analytics platforms, and advanced data analysis, which leads to stronger safety and much more detailed and accurate insights.

The downsides of neglecting cloud implementation

There are a number of pain points your organization might be used to experiencing, but doesn’t have to:

  • Traditional on-premise security systems have limitations in terms of scalability. This means that as your business grows, you will be unable to easily scale up the infrastructure. It is not impossible, but adjusting a security framework — without the cloud — is exceptionally costly and complex.
  • Without cloud-based solutions, accessing security systems remotely can be laborious. Typically, monitoring and managing security operations demands physical presence on-site, which unsurprisingly, limits flexibility and responsiveness to security incidents.
  • On-premises solutions may have inherent vulnerabilities, such as data loss due to hardware failure, theft, or natural disasters. Cloud-based solutions offer robust data security measures, redundancy, and disaster recovery options that safeguard critical information. 

Top benefits of utilizing the cloud

With cloud-based physical security solutions, organizations are able to achieve robust protection, streamlined operations, and resilience. Your people and assets will be safeguarded efficiently, 24/7/365, even amid a rapidly evolving and dangerous security landscape.

  • Flexibility
  • Versatility
  • Cost-effectiveness
  • No bulky equipment taking up space or demanding continual updates
  • Remote access Anytime Anywhere
  • Off-site credentialing and monitoring
  • Faster automation and deployment
  • Better visibility and monitoring capabilities
  • Optimal integration of different solutions
  • Hybrid environment — an alternative for a gradual transition (on-prem/the cloud)
  • Insightful, more accurate, and actionable data
  • Futureproofing


Do you need a cloud-based security system?


We are having a hard time integrating our security applications and tools. We are concerned unification requires separate training, monitoring, and maintenance procedures.

Disparate security systems often operate in silos, making it difficult to share information and coordinate strategies during security incidents. This can result in delayed or fragmented responses, hampering the effectiveness of security operations. With the cloud, however, you can ensure your environment is working harmoniously, which leads to improved and unified actions.


Absolutely, our organization has been grappling with the detrimental consequences of not knowing what’s going on at all times in our premises.

The lack of visibility has posed significant challenges and hindered our ability to effectively monitor and respond to security incidents asap.

Without professional integration, it becomes very difficult to obtain a comprehensive view of the threat landscape. Plus, your security personnel may struggle to correlate data from different systems, blocking their ability to detect patterns, identify risks, and make informed decisions in real-time.

Conversely, the cloud offers centralized monitoring, optimal data integration and analysis, and real-time notifications and alerts, all of which magnify the situational awareness of your business.


As a business owner, I’ve had to experience the burdens of escalating costs and ongoing maintenance obligations linked to our existing physical security systems.

By migrating to the cloud, entirely or partially, businesses can eliminate the need for on-premises servers, storage devices, and software licenses. This eliminates upfront hardware costs and ongoing maintenance expenses, resulting in significant cost savings.


We are deeply concerned about crime and how it can disrupt our operations.

By harnessing the power of the cloud, enterprises can elevate their physical security, as it offers centralized management, remote accessibility, flexibility, enhanced data security, and access to advanced analytics, ultimately ensuring a safer and more secure environment for your operations.

If you answered YES to one or more of these questions, your facility requires the expert implementation of cloud-based solutions, tailored specifically to address the needs of your business.
