Overview: In order to receive approval for a U.S. government contract, a defense contractor had to provide security coverage in an unsecured portion of their multi-tenant facility. In addition, UL Standard 2050 mandated a fifteen-minute security response time, but since the current guard service was managed from an off-site location, this could not be guaranteed. The contractor turned to a managed video security solution which included:
• Video guard tours: Regularly scheduled visual sweeps in real time ensure proper security postures are being maintained at all times.
• Upon verification of suspicious activity or security breach, a remote security professional can help notify local law enforcement, verbally announce their presence, and record and monitor the situation until authorities arrive.
This case study details how this defense contractor increased the security of their facility, was able to petition for an extension of the UL Standard 2050 response time requirement and save nearly $70,000 a year in on-site security guard costs.
