Today’s startup Verkada is creating cloud-based security solutions that seamlessly integrate and scale.
⚾ The Elevator Pitch
Security is a large industry. And almost all public or privately owned buildings have a surveillance or security system of some kind. Warehouses, apartment buildings, schools – you name it. When dealing with security systems, the most important parts are – well one, security of course – but also scalability and connectivity. Scalability for large-scale warehouses or organizations with multiple buildings that made need a larger more complex security system, and connectivity, to seamlessly integrate all these individual security components together.
Verkada aims to be the go-to company for all and any security solutions. Verkada offers a suite of security products, from video security and access control to air quality and alarms. In addition, they provide a suite of software to securely and easily manage and monitor these devices.

🔍 Why we like it
🔒 It’s all about security
Education, retail, government, restaurants, hospitality, the list goes on. They all need security – both as a way to deter criminal activity and to monitor it when it does occur. While security companies like Ring have become common systems for families and households, they aren’t the best fit for large organizations and companies at scale. Verkada is exactly that. Verkada is providing an integrated ecosystem of devices and software that is difficult to compete with. With a large demographic of potential users and consumers, they’ve got a large market to work with.
😪 Easy set up, easier to scale
Verkada’s devices are easy to install and online in minutes, creating a low barrier of entry for more lowkey organizations such as small businesss. From there, users can manage all devices across sites with their web-based platform that’s accessible from any browser. Scaling is even easier as consumers are working within the same ecosystem of devices and software. At the same time, Verkada does not compromise ease for security. In designing their systems, Verkada built a system that’s secure from ground up – hardware, network, cloud, and application security all in mind.
