Managed security solutions can be a godsend. They provide peace of mind for business owners and facility managers, who can keep their companies safe and secure without ever lifting a finger.

Still, it bears repeating – before signing on the dotted line with a security vendor, be sure to steer clear of flimflam artists who use proprietary products and/or software. There is absolutely no reason in this day and age to pay hand over fist for proprietary – and possibly outdated – business security systems.

Instead, look for a quality vendor who offers quality, cloud-based managed security solutions, such as true “touchless” or “frictionless” card readers. This state-of-the art tech does not require credentials but can access the Bluetooth on your employees’ mobile devices.

Seek out fully managed services that deliver peace of mind by saving time and money. Systems should be:

  • Easily installed – and scalable. From access control to alarm systems to surveillance and beyond, your security response plan should fit your business’s needs, not the other way around. The ideal managed security solutions will be implemented by trained professionals who take the time to understand your protocols. Look for low monthly fees that ensure constant supervision.
  • Supported with 24/7 customer service. Look for turnkey solutions that ensure continuous, real-time monitoring, 24-hours a day, 7 days a week. Monitoring crews should be adept with the intricacies of all integrated systems, including access control, alarm, and surveillance – allowing them to provide around-the-clock troubleshooting and service.
  • Protected with end-to-end security and encryption. Comprehensive measures should be taken to make certain that techs are dispatched for repairs at a moment’s notice to ensure continuous productivity.
