Game-Changing Solutions Businesses Are Adopting in 2024

Worldwide IT spending is projected to total £4.45 trillion in 2024, an increase of 5.1% from 2023! For business owners who want their organisation to be as productive, protected and successful as it can be technology is an unavoidable asset. Fortunately, ambitious business owners are in luck! 

IT now solves countless problems from, on-site and online security, to large-scale data storage and hybrid workforce collaboration. Technological investments are inevitable, and doing so at the beginning of a new year not only lays the perfect foundation for your business to flourish but also puts you firmly ahead of competitors who are too slow at upgrading. 

Below are five game-changing solutions you should take a look at before entering 2024:

Strong CCTV Stops You From Being a Target

CCTV is the number one defence against criminals, so much so that it has been found that as many as 67% of burglaries could be prevented if people had CCTV monitoring

CCTV is the biggest deterrent to potential criminals and these days not having CCTV makes you an enticing target for criminals. Instant monitoring, confident prosecution, innovative smart features, and most importantly, peace of mind are just a few of the benefits having an up-to-date CCTV system gives you.

For a long time, CCTV was just another security precaution to cross off the checklist. Many businesses implemented legacy CCTV systems years ago for insurance or legal reasons but were then left with no one truly taking ownership.

Businesses still using these outdated legacy cameras expect an unreliable, blurry, and significantly less secure CCTV experience. Not only this but most businesses have expensive hardware on-site, as well as important business and even customer data. Loss of any of this data could be extremely damaging to the company's reputation and put a halt to business operations whilst you attempt to recover from the robbery.

Access Management Solutions

On-premise criminal attacks have increased drastically since 2020, it has become imperative for companies to ensure that only authorized personnel have access to their premises and sensitive data. Luckily recent revolutions in cloud access management technology has made it easier than ever for businesses to manage and project their buildings and staff

Key Cards for Doors

Key cards are a widely used access control solution in businesses. They are convenient and easy to use, allowing authorized personnel to enter restricted areas by simply swiping their card at the door. Our key card solutions include advanced features such as encryption and multi-factor authentication, which enhance the security of your premises.

Apps on Phones that Work as Key Cards

In addition to key cards, we also offer access management solutions that utilize mobile devices as keys. Our mobile access solutions work by turning your smartphone into a virtual key card, allowing authorized personnel to access restricted areas by simply using their phone. This technology is not only convenient but also reduces the risk of lost or stolen key cards.

Different Security Clearance Levels

Different areas in a business may require different levels of security clearance. For example, the server room may only be accessible to IT staff, while the marketing department may only require access to their office space. We offer access management solutions that allow you to assign different security clearance levels to employees, ensuring that they only have access to the areas they need to do their job.

Managed Through one Simple Hub

Managing access control and management solutions can be a daunting task, especially for businesses with many employees and multiple locations. Our solutions are designed to be managed through one simple hub, allowing you to easily add or remove users, adjust security clearance levels, and monitor access logs from one central location.


Powerful Networking Lays a Strong Technological Foundation 

According to a survey by Virgin Media Business, the internet has proven to be one of the biggest time-wasters for businesses. 

Many businesses today offer Internet to their employees, clients and visitors. With the fast-growing use of the Internet, poor connectivity can prove to not only be irritating but damaging to a business. Perception is everything, and one of the most common ways a consumer will judge your business is on your internet connection. Ultimately, in the online business world, you need high-quality internet connections in order to function and grow.

With the fast-growing use of the internet, poor connectivity can prove to not only be irritating but damaging too. For many businesses IT is merely an inconvenience and put simply 'they just want it to work', attempting to deal with your IT in-house can be costly, time-consuming and stressful.

Address the Biggest Security Risk You Face

Despite 90% of IT and cybersecurity specialists agreeing that cyber-security awareness is of the highest importance, 40% of these organisations have stated that employee awareness is low

Advancements in cyber-security and constant software updates are helping tackle malicious cyber-attacks on businesses using the power of technology. Whilst this is undeniably beneficial, malicious cyber-attacks only make up 5% of all successful data breaches, the other 95% is caused by every business’s weakest security link, their employees. Human risk is the biggest threat businesses face, and with the average cost of a data breach at 3.6 million according to a study by IBM, it is more important than ever to address this and if you do not your business could be at risk.

With so many human error-related threats out there from phishing, and password cracking, to poor cyber hygiene and on-site exposure, keeping your business safe from human risk-related threats can seem a near-impossible task. Implementing game-changing solutions such as bitwarden for managing and generating passwords, and Usecure for mitigating human risk through statistics, calculations, and tests, will help tackle the root cause of data breaches through your employees.
