Perimeter Security


Vehicle Ramming Attacks

In the world of cyber security, a cyber-attack exploits users having weak passwords or protections in place, making it easy for threat actors to cause harm. Destructive attacks in the physical world work much in the same way, using simple tactics and a wide attack surface to intentionally cause harm. The threat of vehicle ramming attacks introduces a new dimension of challenges for security professionals, property managers, and business owners alike.

Early Detection and Deterrence

Threats of theft, vandalism, and terrorism are a continual concern for those responsible for the security of high-risk facilities. Perimeter security is vital to maintaining safety, safeguarding assets and ensuring continuity of business at these sites.

Revolutionizing Perimeter Security

In an ever-evolving world, the need for robust and cost-efficient perimeter security measures has become paramount. Traditional methods often fall short of effectively safeguarding sensitive or large areas.

The Advantage of Video Monitoring

The last few years have been unique, and we, as a society, continue to face new challenges. Organizations and businesses of all types are walking a fine line between facility accessibility and supporting facility security.

The New Age

The New Age

Perimeter protection has been part of the human psyche since the dawn of mankind. Over the millennia we’ve evolved from crude barriers of sticks and rocks to fortified walls of concrete and stone to electrified fences and high-resolution surveillance cameras.

Multiply and Conquer

Technology is increasingly being used as a force multiplier to help law enforcement agencies protect and serve. One way agencies are turning technology into a crime-fighting tool is by creating what’s called a “virtual fence” around a perimeter, such as city limits or a parking lot, by installing a network of license plate reader (LPR) cameras to monitor an area.

All the Hype

All the Hype

Alongside the hype in the media about the border wall, this might be a good time for commercial and industrial companies to take a closer look at their own borders. Threat levels are increasing due to rising crime, civil activism and even cyber threats and it is more important than ever to push the line of defense all the way to the borders.
