Research and Markets: 2011 United States Security in Retail Overview: Physical Security and Building Technologies Focus
Apr 12, 2012 (M2 PRESSWIRE via COMTEX) --
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/3c510261/2011_united_states) has announced the addition of Frost & Sullivan's new report "2011 United States Security in Retail Overview: Physical Security and Building Technologies Focus" to their offering.
The Present and the Future of Physical Security and Building Technologies in Retail
The majority of retailers are either somewhat familiar or very familiar with all of the surveyed physical security and building technologies. As many as twothirds of retailers are very familiar with video surveillance systems (the best result), while less than half are familiar with cloud-based systems for security management. These results are not surprising because video surveillance technologies are well established within the market, while cloud systems are relatively new.
Given the retail environment, it is not surprising that shoplifting, robbery, employee theft, and organized retail crime are the major challenges retailers face. However, other risks, such as unauthorized entry and loss of confidential information, also pose challenges.
Of the physical security and building technologies surveyed, keypads, analog video surveillance, and card readers have the highest share of usage. It is hardly surprising, as access control solutions are necessary for any business operation, while analog video surveillance is one of the longest-used technology within the market.
This study's research objective is to gauge the usage of building technologies and physical security technologies within United States retail chains. The data was collected in August 2011, using a web-based survey. The sample consisted of 182 managers. The study examines technologies including access control systems: keypads, card readers, and analog video surveillance that help minimize threats such as shoplifting.
Also covered are technologies used in retail premises, including fire suppression and detection, HVAC, energy management, and remote monitoring systems.
Key Topics Covered:
- Research Objectives and Methods
- Executive Summary and Implications
- Focus on Threats and Challenges
- Building and Physical Security Technologies
- Corporate Demographic Profile
- The Frost & Sullivan Story
