It’s common for large companies with multiple facilities in the US (and overseas) to have a fragmented set of security systems at all those sites. You might have several kinds of video surveillance solutions running at the same time, and access control systems that don’t talk to each other or your HR database.
This is part of our series on how a managed services team helps your system deliver the required level of corporate safety and security.
(If you’re new to this series, a third-party “managed services team” is a remote set of security experts who assume responsibility for your security system’s day-to-day operation. Here’s our team.)
Today, we’ll focus on how they help deliver a high level of system uptime.
We firmly believe in the long-term value of using open-architecture security hardware and software. In other words, fundamentally extensible components that can easily integrate together.
In contrast, some security product lines lock users into a proprietary platform. This may meet your requirements and save capital expenditure in the first few years, but at the cost of higher operating expense and narrowed future choices.
Systems based on open architecture can accommodate new innovations faster, easier, and at lower cost.
