Access Control as a Service is set to thrive on the long term, experts forecast
While Access Control as a Service (ACaaS) is still a relatively niche segment worldwide, it’s likely to record a spectacular growth on the long-term, researchers from the IHS have recently revealed.
In fact, the global market size is expected to exceed $530 million by 2018 and $1.8 billion by 2025, with the main growth drivers being the global adoption of cloud and virtualization in other sectors, not related to security, and the services associated with ACaaS.
During the first half of 2014, IHS calculated that multi-tenant data center sales grew by 12.7% on a global basis. As it relates to access control, IHS expects the commoditization of access control hardware to draw more attention to value-added services and ROI.
Today, most providers of ACaaS do not specialize in ACaaS only, and, as a result, the sector remains a small portion of most monitoring stations and integrators’ overall business.
Transition from standard access control solutions to ACaaS is not an easy process, since companies will have to evolve from selling components to selling services, features and concepts. Additionally, they must know the IT side of the business and be able to answer questions regarding redundancy, certifications, hacking, and other buzz words associated with cloud-based services and ACaaS.
