Your business is a major investment and you want to protect that investment, so it makes sense to go the extra mile when it comes to physical security. There are several ways that you can secure your business with the help of the experts at CSi.
Install a Security System
CSi can install and maintain a variety of business security systems in Chester County, PA. A security system can deter people from breaking into your business after business hours. In the event of a break-in, an alarm will sound and notify the authorities. You can also opt for mobile notifications of security threats.
Use Video Surveillance
Video surveillance in Chester County, PA is another commercial security solution CSi provides to businesses of all sizes. The presence of a security camera alone provides effective crime deterrence. Studies show most people commit crimes when they think they can get away with it; when they see a camera, they are less likely to break-in or vandalize a business due to the risk of being identified.
There is a chance that someone will still attempt to come into your business. With a video surveillance system that includes strategically placed, high-quality cameras, the event will be recorded and provide clear evidence for a police investigation. You will also have the damage on video to provide to your insurance company for proof of claim.
Access Control System
Access control systems are another customizable security solution that can be used to keep unauthorized people out of your building. You have the option of choosing a standalone device, which is helpful for small storefronts that need only a few card access readers, for example. Or, larger companies may select a fully integrated system that combines a variety of access devices, door security solutions, and system monitoring.
These systems have cloud-based capabilities, as well, allowing you to secure one building or multiple facilities at one or more physical locations. This is a particularly helpful solution for universities and healthcare networks.
There are many benefits that you can reap from having an access control system. Not only will it help keep your business secure, but it will also help you save money. You won’t have to rely on keys anymore, which can be easily lost or stolen and copied. Furthermore, it will be easier for employees to access the building whenever they need.
Secure Your Network
Your building itself is not the only thing at risk. It is equally important to secure your network(s). Data breaches can threaten information security and sometimes even affect your physical security systems. CSi also offers IT solutions that can help secure your network, thus protecting the commercial security systems we install.
There are also some steps that you can take on your own to keep the network secure. It all starts with strong passwords that contain a combination of letters, symbols, and numbers. Regularly changing/updating your passwords is also important. If your company is upgrading any computer equipment, it is vital you wipe all data off the computer before taking it to the electronic recycling facility or selling it to another party. To secure your company’s internet connection, rename routers and networks, use strong passwords, keep everything updated, turn on encryption, use firewalls, and consider using a VPN (virtual private network) for employees to access shared documents.
