Viakoo Joins Spiceworks Global IT Community To Connect Physical and Cybersecurity

Mountain View, CA (February 14, 2018) –  Viakoo, the only provider of a proactive solution to automate surveillance and access control system verification for the security industry, has joined Spiceworks, and is sponsoring the Physical Security Group as of early 2018.

Spiceworks’ global IT community includes millions of IT professionals, over 50,000 of which are subscribed to the Physical Security Group. Though the Physical Security Group is a recent addition to the Spiceworks Community, its rapid growth in recent years demonstrates how integral IT is becoming to many physical security professionals’ operational procedures.

“Cybersecurity, data governance, and risk management are challenging issues for IT and physical security professionals,” said Bud Broomhead, Chief Executive Officer of Viakoo. “By joining Spiceworks, and sponsoring the physical security group, Viakoo is hoping to demystify the issues involved in connecting physical security and cybersecurity and bring a better understanding to all of the modern complexities currently concerning physical security systems.”

This past year has brought a lot of attention to cybersecurity issues that threaten physical security systems, and Viakoo hopes to shine a light on the possible solutions that automated surveillance systems and access verification can bring to the changing operations of physical security.
