Integrated Security Solutions: A key part of building Business Value

There are many components to a security system, especially those that act effectively to deliver protection within the traditional ‘Five Ds’ – Deter, Detect, Deny, Delay and Defend.

Integrated security solutions use a number of components to deliver maximum effect, including access control, intrusion detection, video surveillance and 24-hour monitoring.

But should the value of an integrated security solution be measured purely on the basis of those ‘Five Ds’? We believe there is a greater value to be enjoyed by companies that employ the integrated approach, especially where a multi-component security system integrates with intelligent IT solutions.

The most obvious advantage of integrating with IT solutions that track security transactions – whether by visitors or intruders, or simply between staff – is that it gives security managers the opportunity to track visual and recorded data against business transactions, giving a far greater correlative capability to identify when there have been breaches, and who may have been involved.

For example, within a retail environment, an integrated security system that governs access control to a stock room, supported by pan-tilt-zoom camera systems, can prove invaluable during a stock-in/stock-out transaction to ensure that all parties involved are transacting within the business rules and law.

But beyond security, there can be significant advantages for other departments within the business – the marketing division could, for example, use security data to track consumer movement and behaviour: how best could this data be used to guide shop layouts, corridor flows, and more?

The HR department will have far greater capability to monitor staff movement, behaviour and performance – correlating this with interview data can really help make the correct assessment of someone’s value during performance appraisals.

The message here is clear: an integrated security solution is about so much more than just defending against crime or antisocial behaviour – it’s about adding real value to your business, across the board.
