IP technologies fuel global expansion and standardisation of security systems
Networked solutions provide global businesses with a security solution that fosters central and regional control of information and processes data more efficiently
Networking is a powerful way to effectively converge and integrate security

In an ever-changing world, business organisations require efficient security partners in order to focus their expansion towards growing economies. This physical expansion leads to a need for expanded and enhanced security programs to protect a growing network of people and facilities. In this article, Renae Leary, Senior Director, Global Accounts, at ADT Worldwide, provides an insight into cost-effective deployment of security solutions that support rapid and widespread business expansion.

Growing businesses look to solution providers to help manage security technology deployment on a global scale and therefore, in order to be most effective, today’s advanced security systems integrators need to deliver solutions with a global perspective. This approach allows multinational organisation to realise seamless, efficient and cost effective operations at every facility within the organisation. Too often solution providers don’t cultivate a global approach to systems and policy integration but today’s forward thinking systems integrators are changing the game.

These companies provide security practitioners with the tools they need to successfully expand their security programs worldwide. Today solutions providers employ security practitioners with the tools they need to successfully expand their security programs worldwide. This includes not only being able to install and service technology in varying markets, but investing in systems, infrastructure and personnel to be able to effectively manage a global security program for clients. Having teams that understand local and regional requirements and legalities is essential.

Networked systems allow users to enjoy an unprecedented level of control over who has access to surveillance data

Security providers maximise the use of traditional technology, develop new ways to apply these systems and recommend new solutions, such as IP-based security solutions. The IP-based security technologies offer advanced tools and capabilities including real-time monitoring from any location; centralised and remote video monitoring of multiple buildings; better video surveillance image quality; advanced video encryption; long-term savings in infrastructure and operational costs; and future-proof systems.

Integrators experienced in IP systems keenly understand the issues surrounding the convergence of networked and physical security, and have expert IT teams in place to deliver robust networked solutions to large-scale integration projects.

Enterprise-scale benefits of IP security solutions

As physical and IT security continues to converge, more security directors look to transition their security systems onto the IT network to realise an unmatched level of technology coordination. From access control to video management, networked solutions provide global businesses with a security solution that fosters central and regional control of information and processes data more efficiently.

Networked systems allow users to enjoy an unprecedented level of control over who has access to surveillance data.The system can also be integrated with other networked platforms such as fire and life safety systems, intrusion detection, building controls, visitor management, business analytics and other systems in a turnkey approach.

Network compatibility

Networking makes a global corporation efficient — it’s a powerful way to effectively converge and integrate security, crisis management and disaster control, as well as execute other critical parts of managing the enterprise. If done right, the result can be world-class security programs meeting global installation requirements and procedures highly tailored to customer needs.

Scaling up the security system

To ensure business continuity and safety, global organisations require a partner that can assist overall business operations through the delivery of IP technology and integrated software platforms. And only working alongside a true global partner can security leaders standardise globally on IP-based products and services, ultimately realising cost effectiveness and improved levels of security.
