One World, One Call

End users leverage partnerships to streamline security across the globe

Business operations in today’s market increasingly take on a global approach. Many of today’s growth-oriented businesses aim to extend operations to other states and countries after solidifying success in existing markets, and this trend will only continue to accelerate. Corporations conduct business with a number of entities in a variety of locations, and their customers can be as close as Poughkeepsie or as far as Peru.

The global approach to business drives a need, desire and requirement for a streamlined approach to security. Technologies, services and procedures need to be managed from a centralized location not only to increase security and safety but to deliver long-term ROI and business efficiencies to the customer. A security systems integrator dedicated to providing a high level of service and innovative technologies to multinational customers is an ideal partner for an enterprise security leader. Therefore, such a customer’s security program requires a structured approach from a single-service provider to successfully bring a worldwide security program together.

One Worldwide Partner

Whether you’re a C-level executive at a large, multinational enterprise or a smaller corporation with various locations, it is ideal to rely on a single set of security standards and a single-service provider to fulfill security needs. With one systems integrator, there is no more searching through databases to determine who to call for a specific need or to quickly address critical concerns. When an organization partners with a global vendor, it is provided with one point of contact for all its needs in order to streamline technology and service deployments across the globe.

As security solutions become more complex, IT-centric and networked-based, a knowledgeable solutions company can execute cohesive logical and physical security installations across the globe, which is critical to ensure consistent and cost-effective operations. This approach also lends itself to more efficiency in the enterprise and assists in defining management objectives. With this in mind, enterprise organizations are ideal candidates to contract a single integrator for all their physical and logical security solutions. An experienced service company will provide one team for all plans and devise cohesive and well-executed loss prevention, security, business management and risk assessment goals and strategies.

There are many options available to the enterprise that wants to leverage logical and physical security on the network. Software platforms, such as physical security information management systems, can be deployed and managed in-house or in the cloud. IP or analog surveillance is another consideration, as well as access control ranging from simple single-door control to managed access. The possibilities for effectively managing physical security and logical network controls are endless, and it takes a comprehensive solutions provider to provide a robust plan and the personnel needed to effectively deploy a worldwide security program.

A single-source technology and service provider that is experienced in global operations connects the end-user enterprise to all the efficiencies of the network and streamlines business on the IT network.

A dedicated, experienced security systems integrator also will know and easily grasp the pain points of global customers. These providers critically understand the local and regional regulations and legalities of overseas operations; effectively plan, execute and communicate regularly; consistently follow project status; and update and maintain services and software. This frees management of these day-to-day tasks to allow enterprise security teams to focus on their vision and roadmap of building a successful security and business analytic program across the globe.

Building a ‘Standard’ System

Consider a sole integration company your single source of command and control. A single-source provider that extensively understands business here and abroad can help organizations standardize technology and services no matter where a company conducts business or has facilities. A dedicated team focuses on delivering integrated enterprise security projects in a consistent solution. Hands down, customers who standardize on products and services realize immediate and long-term cost efficiencies and improved levels of security. By partnering with a security integrator that can deliver a consistent level of support and security systems across the world, customers have access to dedicated account management and the latest updated products and services specifically tailored to an organization’s needs.

An experienced systems integrator delivers the same type of service in one location as it can at another location 5,000 miles away and allows security practitioners to realize significant savings in time, resources and money. The real value to a global company is the consistent integration of systems to provide central control through a single point of contact, delivering peace of mind to the security team and C-level executives.
