Security technology convergence, which refers to the incorporation of computing, networking, and communications technologies into electronic physical security systems, was first introduced in the 1970s with the advent of computer-based access control and alarm systems. As the pace of information technology (IT) advances continued to accelerate, the physical security industry continued to lag behind IT advances by at least two to three years.Security Technology Convergence Insightsexplores this sometimes problematic convergence of physical security technology and information technology and its impact on security departments, IT departments, vendors, and management.
