Vodafone Continues to be a Leader in M2M Security Tech

By Oliver VanDervoort February 04, 2013

In the 21st century Machine-to-Machine (M2M) technology is having an ever-growing presence in the business world. The automotive sector especially has found new and interesting ways to use M2M to their advantage. The United States is far from the only country that is seeing a big boom in the use of M2M technology with India recently seeing a large spike in the use of the tech there. While the auto industry is finding new and inventive ways to take advantage of M2M, the most popular use seems to still be in the field of security and monitoring. Vodafone is just one company that is continuously working to make M2M security solutions to a higher level.

Vodafone has specially engineered its M2M security solutions to help businesses protect against theft, fire and a host of other security problems. Vodafone has been working on technological advances in the M2M security fields for more than two decades and in that time they have covered everything from CCTVs and asset tracking to basic alarm systems. The company has worked hard to change is becoming more technologically advanced every day and is finding new ways around established security protocols.

That is one of the reasons that companies like Vodafone have worked so hard to update its M2M technology. The need to bring security technology up to snuff is a huge need, especially when you consider that 75 percent of alarms and cameras in Europe are currently going unmonitored. Criminals are also getting better at targeting areas that are not monitored by conventional means at all, making it that much easier to steal something and never be caught. Vodafone is one of the leading companies when it comes to monitoring M2M technologies in and around Europe and has reinvested millions in making sure it has the latest technology. Among the tech solutions Vodafone currently offers, it has put together a global M2M platform, global M2M specific SIM cards and application and service enabled development.
