Technology Trends for 2017

technology trends in 2017

Mobile access is a consistently growing trend.

Reflecting on how technology has evolved over the last ten years, it is pretty apparent how quickly devices, practices, and technology trends change. Technology is consistently improving and becoming ever more sophisticated with each passing year. So what sorts of technology trends should we expect to drive the security and telecommunications industry in 2017?

Mobile Access is Growing

Security teams want to know what is going on at any particular moment from anywhere. These customers are getting that kind of access through their mobile devices, and they are defining the drive towards the development of apps designed for that purpose as well as special IP cameras that work with them. Developers will continue to tweak these apps in order to accommodate more devices and work around the inherent constraints of mobile networks.

Data Sharing and Collaboration

Public agencies are driving forward technology trends that seek greater synergy between various agencies, law enforcement, hospitals, schools, and other municipal bodies. Secure methods of sharing that kind of data will continue to garner the attention of public entities as well as businesses looking to share valuable information with the police.

Concerns about Privacy and Security

Privacy and security concerns have been a part of the public forum for a few years now, but the conversation continues for businesses as well. Security vendors know the importance of keeping information and access to the system secure at all times and data encryption methods will continue to be of critical importance in the upcoming year.


Having an efficient system is another one of the technology trends we should see make strides next year. Multiple systems united under one platform can make processes more efficient. Once an out-of-the-box solution is developed that is a fraction of the cost of a completely customized solution, this technology should see even more widespread adoption.
