G4S Wackenhut Rebrands As G4S
G4S Wackenhut is changing its name to G4S to reflect the company’s vision of providing comprehensive security solutions.
G4S officials said they are positioned to deliver a new category of integrated security solutions that combines manpower and technology. Through a series of acquisitions that includes Nuclear Security Services Corp., Touchcom Inc., Adesta and AMAG Technology, G4S will continue to evolve its core competencies from its Wackenhut roots to deliver integrated security solutions for greater performance and efficiency.
“Our transformation from G4S Wackenhut to G4S is not something that happened overnight,” said Drew Levine, president of G4S Secure Solutions. “Since before Wackenhut became part of the G4S family of companies, we’ve been developing new and more efficient means of supplementing our security officers with powerful technologies such as our Secure Trax Management Software platform. Now with the global resources of G4S, we can deliver a wider range of services -- including security consulting, design, and engineering; compliance and risk management; facilities management and remote video monitoring -- to deliver truly integrated security solutions unlike any other company in the industry.”
G4S’ Secure Trax Management Software platform provides real-time event monitoring, situation management, and business intelligence. Depending on a user’s specific needs, event monitoring functions can include any combination of incident management, guard tours, fire and safety inspections and fleet management programs.
Secure Trax also provides “business intelligence” capabilities like GPS tracking of assets, personnel and critical issues, as well as immediate access to current and historical security- and safety-related data for every location via a seamless Web-based interface helping customers operate more efficiently and achieve a positive ROI.
