Webinar: Advantages of Closed Security Eco Systems
With CES 2020 kicking off this week, I thought it would be a good idea (okay, at least to me) to attempt to make Simplisafe's state of the art 1997 website a bit more interesting with a simulated (aka fake) webinar on a topic that may be interested to many.
So, for today's fake webinar:
"Closed Security Eco Systems: Good policy or lacking innovation". A moderated online debate if Simplisafe's closed eco system enhances security for its users or hinders innovation. By closed eco system for the purpose of this fake webinar is defined as no enhanced integration with 3rd party hardware or software providers. For illustrative purposes, with Echo or Google Assistant, one may arm their system but not disarm.
Given the past and growing incidents of hacks into more and more products and services, I support Simplisafe's approach of slow and easy on 3rd party integrations. Encryption with SS3 was a major milestone in SS's product evolution and do not want that compromised.
Your thoughts? Please post here.
