Advances in video and cloud-based analytics

Users’ information is stored in on-premises data centers, requiring close monitoring to ensure data security. Video surveillance is one such security measure, where on-site photos and videos are collected and sent regularly for monitoring to ensure the security of the data center facility.

Thanks to advances in video surveillance, high-performance cameras record and collect huge amounts of data. Cloud-based video analytics is the latest trend in physical security today.

IoT-based sensors are also increasingly being deployed along with camera-based surveillance solutions. Augmented reality (AR) is also being tested in data centers for technician training purposes. Cloud computing and edge processing will drive the adoption of advanced video content analytics in the coming years.


  • Data center administrators are increasingly adopting multiple layers of physical data center security, including five-layer security systems, due to the increasing focus on data security.

  • In 2021, North America was the largest contributor to the physical data center security market, accounting for more than 40% of the market share. In terms of product, access control contributed about 34% of the market.

  • An increasing adoption of Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) has been observed among data center administrators.
