  • Mobile patrol & alarm response: Mobile patrol units were implemented to ensure comprehensive coverage, with rapid alarm response capabilities to mitigate potential security incidents swiftly.
  • Intelligent patrolling and reporting – Securitas Guarding Platform: The implementation of the Securitas Guarding Platform enabled intelligent patrolling, real-time reporting, and data analytics. This technology-driven approach allowed for more effective monitoring and reporting of security activities.

Benefits realised

  • Central control of security functions: The client gained centralised control over all security functions, streamlining operations and ensuring a cohesive approach to safeguarding their digital infrastructure.
  • Real-Time security and performance Intelligence: With the Securitas Guarding Platform, the organisation achieved real-time insights into security activities, allowing for immediate responses to potential threats and the ability to track performance metrics over time.
