New York Stock Exchange Strengthens Security
American Defense Systems Inc., a provider of advanced transparent and opaque armor, architectural hardening and security products for defense and homeland security, has added additional ADSI enhancements to the physical security at the New York Stock Exchange operated by NYSE Euronext.
As the result of a continued threat assessment and security analysis by ADSI professionals, the new installation includes a set of high-threat security doors. This follows an earlier installation of security windows on the executive level, a curtain wall system for the exchange's data center, and security doors in the entrance to the trading floor. The new installation was completed efficiently and without affecting the normal operations of the busy exchange.
"The NYSE is a marquee ADSI client that has extraordinary physical security needs," said ADSI's CEO Anthony J. Piscitelli. "Our installation at the exchange is designed to provide state-of-the-art protection and physical security for NYSE employees and the critical functions of the exchange. It is the result of an ongoing relationship to provide this security at an extremely high level as the needs of the exchange evolve and change.
"This installation also reflects what we see as a growing awareness and need to protect our citizens, diplomats and military personnel in government, commercial and military facilities around the world with advanced security and protection technologies like those provided by ADSI.
The NYSE has a number of options, so we attribute this award to our reputation for delivering and maintaining installations at the highest level of effectiveness, while also remaining cost-competitive."
