IT security pioneer John Ochinero has launched a company called Security Valet, which aims to bring visibility to the wide range of affordable security technology to small- to medium-sized businesses (SMBs).
Security Valet will offer branded biometric Flash drives and IP/addressable surveillance products. Ochinero says, "To date, IP/addressable surveillance technology, allowing the business owner to view their property via the internet, had a significant price threshold making it available to only larger concerns. Today, this technology is available at a price point that should be attractive to up to 80% of the business community.
"Surveillance technology is often associated with theft prevention. While true, however, with a wider lens it is actually about creating a competitive advantage. Employee morale and retention, customer safety, workers’ compensation issues and bottom line profitability all are factors involved in a stable, growing business. We also are exploring the possibility of offering critical IT security technology to this same SMB market in the near term.”
