Physical security is the foundation of any security strategy. It is essential for organizations to implement systems and training in order to quickly detect and respond to any on-site threats and incidents.
Beyond the digital landscape, there are a myriad of physical threats that have the potential to seriously harm your business if it is not properly protected. Something as small as a stolen laptop or as large as a data center fire can result in a catastrophic loss of confidential information, trigger an entire system shutdown or worse.
Cameras keep a watchful eye and badge or keycode systems limit access to authorized users, but human error remains the most common reason why physical security fails. Keeping employees vigilant and aware of targeted attack methods as well as proper security procedures can significantly reduce the risk of a breach or other unintentional disaster.
Sentinel SecuritySelect™ will help your organization establish cost-effective and comprehensive physical security solutions that integrate seamlessly into your network and on-premises environment in addition to protecting critical assets from threats.
Mass Notification Systems
When any type of emergency occurs, it is essential to make sure people are aware of the situation so they can quickly respond in an appropriate way that maximizes the protection of everyone in the area. Severe weather, fires, medical issues, and violent incidents are all circumstances where having a mass notification system and alert devices placed in strategic locations could save a significant number of lives. Text and audio communications can also be sent to the mobile devices of personnel to increase the speed and reach of critical information.
Sentinel has extensive experience developing mass notification systems for all types of environments, and will work closely with your organization to create a solution that integrates seamlessly with your office building or campus. There are several different types of mass notification solutions that can be configured based on your needs:
Interconnected flashing lights that placed in rooms, hallways, public spaces, and outdoors to visually alert people in the area about a dangerous or emergency situation.
Dedicated Panic Button
Standalone panic button units placed in rooms and other strategic areas both indoors and outdoors will contact the proper personnel or emergency services when pressed and provide location accuracy for faster response times.
Incident Response Team
Select personnel trained in incident response can receive notification alerts so they can take the proper action when dangerous or emergency situations occur.
Panic buttons integrated with select IP phones, tablets, and other everyday devices to make it easier for users to alert the proper authorities and provide location information in the event of an emergency or other incident.
Send text messages or push notifications to the mobile devices with information about an emergency situation. Users have the ability to send a reply message if they require additional help.
National and Local Alerts
Automatically deliver an emergency notification to networked phones and messaging systems in the event of severe weather, amber alerts, or other dangerous situations within the local community or across the country.
Connect video surveillance to a mass notification system and receive alerts for things like motion detection in highly secure areas or to view a live camera feed in an area closest to a triggered panic button.
Sentinel offers the following physical security solutions:
Closed circuit television (CCTV) systems use strategically placed analog cameras to privately monitor exteriors and interiors of businesses, as well as highly secure areas to prevent unauthorized intrusion and better manage any incidents or altercations
Badge & Keycode
Restrict access to rooms and areas of your business by requiring users to swipe a badge or enter a code to open locked doors
IP cameras connect to your network, allowing video surveillance and monitoring systems to integrate with other important infrastructure elements. This can help improve collaboration, productivity and incident response times
Social Engineering Training
Hackers may attempt to exploit the naivety, gullibility or indifference of your employees by tricking them into handing over valuable company data or unwittingly providing access to it. Proper training teaches staff how to recognize and avoid these psychological manipulations
Security Awareness Training
Prevent employees from making costly errors that compromise information security by instituting company-wide training initiatives that highlight risks and create a better understanding of security policies, procedures and best practices
