"My guess is that we will see the evolution of a new class of dealer focused on the managed services and cloud-based model, who will do high volumes of business with small- and medium-sized businesses." John Mack, EVP and co-head of investment banking at Imperial Capital
"Cloud-based systems are proliferating, but it's still the early days, there are misconceptions to clear up, business models to understand and technology to explore." Martha Entwistle, editor of Security Systems News and editorial director of TechSec Solutions and SSN Cloud+.
"Corporate America [such companies as Google, Apple and Microsoft] is moving to cloud-based solutions. Integrators who continue to offer conventional access and video are going to be adding to a shrinking market. The new, growing market is cloud-based managed services. The giants are driving it now." Matt Kushner - CEO, 3xLOGIC
"Physical security's move to the cloud is inevitable and it's a huge opportunity." Dean Drako, founder of Barracuda Networks and Eagle Eye Networks
"As cloud adoption has become nearly universal in IT and enterprise software, it's great to see the physical security market making the same shift. Along with the adoption of social, mobile, and advanced identity solutions, the market for access control, video, and related services has matured incredibly. It's almost indistinguishable from the technology currents of Silicon Valley where the event is taking place." Steve Van Till - CEO, Brivo
