Dear Readers,

This month’s edition of Cloudasphere focuses on the steady growth achieved by the ACaaS and VSaaS markets. The VSaaS market is poised to reach $ 48.32 billion by 2020 while ACaaS is set to grow at a CAGR of 24.58% during the period 2016-2020 according to recent market research reports. In two of the recently released papers, titled 10 things about Access Control Systems you need to know before buying and 8 Things That Makes Video Surveillance as a Service (VSaaS) a Great Investment, we take a look at the key drivers behind this phenomenal growth.

Besides, we have released two more research papers that will give you a fresh perspective on cloud-based video surveillance and access control systems. Finally, we do a round-up of the trending articles on VSaaS, AcaaS and IoT.

I hope you enjoy reading it.
