We now rely on technology with most of the actions that we do and whenever referring to business, the importance of security is vital. In the past few months there were many data breaches that were high profile, with top businesses targeted by hackers from all around the world. We even saw hacking smart homes and building security was compromised in so many cases.
The good news is that security companies from all around the world are now investing heavily in developing new security technologies that would be able to fight cyber crime and even structural problems that do exist. Various companies are now offering state of the art physical security options. While this is definitely something that is advantageous, we do need to focus more on the software related business security technology that is now used since this is the main target for hackers and people that are interested in illegally obtaining data.
We can mention many new technologies but we will focus just on some that gained a lot of attention from the press in the past few months.
