Our sales team presented two options; one was a traditional access control system that resides behind their firewall and would allow them to access the system via VPN.

MANAGED ACCESS CONTROL VS. CUSTOMER MANAGED

Our client was located in downtown D.C. where the perimeter access control system was managed by a competitor.  Per the advice of the building manager, they asked this company to provide a quote for three doors of access control.  Like many companies, our client had no idea about the cost associated with a card access system, but they knew the price they received seemed way out of line.  They engaged Secom, along with a few additional companies, to provide them with a quote for a system comparab...

COMMERCIAL INTRUSION DETECTION

This customer contacted Secom requesting a survey of their space because they were concerned they weren’t effectively monitoring their office for an intrusion.  Our client had an existing access control system with a competitor that included monitoring of the perimeter doors only.  Once we surveyed the existing system we noticed an obvious problem.  The perimeter of the space was being monitored, but the IDS didn’t include any secondary measures to monitor the space and provide a layered securit...

We provided an access ...
