When it comes to security breaches, don’t think about if they happen. Think about when they happen. This is why professional security services are a must for companies of all sizes, in all industries.
The Internet Security Threat Report from Symantec found that hackers targeting small businesses increased from 34 percent in 2014 to 43 percent in 2015.
To put it simply, every company is susceptible to all kinds of threats. From cyber attacks and theft to workplace violence and vandalism, there are so many risks you can’t afford to not protect against.
Many professional security services come with a lot of problems. They can be overly complex and demand too much involvement. Many are too expensive and demand a lot of costs to start and manage the service.
Another issue involves the security personnel — many are trained poorly and lack credibility.
When shopping for professional security services, you deserve the best.
Here’s what the best services offer:
Hands-on Customer Service
Companies looking to invest in security technology and services face several challenges.
According to the JBKnowledge 2016 Construction Technology Report, the biggest challenges firms face when adopting new technology include:
- Lack of IT staff (40%)
- Budget (37%)
- Employee hesitance (32%)
- Management hesitance (28%)
The solution is simple. Find security technology and service companies that provide excellent service to their customers.
You want a team that is professional, communicative, and makes you feel like their security team is a part of your team. This way, you don’t need a full IT staff.
Plus, when employees and management see the savings and the protection, they’re more likely to get on board.
Evidence of Excellence
Marketing tactics can be deceiving. It’s one thing to read about a security company’s excellent products, but you deserve to work with a team that has proven their credibility.
When you’re researching professional security services, look for employee testimonials. Without them, you might not be sure what you’re getting for your money.
Look for customers who praise specific features and an excellent customer experience.
The best security services offer the best new technology. You deserve the highest level of protection, so don’t settle for less.
For example, some of the best solutions include:
- License plate recognition (LPR): identify suspicious vehicles and provide real-time alerts.
- Facial recognition: assess threats and verify identities who are threats.
But you also want other options for your unique needs. This includes thermal radar, which is low cost, and PTZ cameras, which actively scan your site and are remotely controlled.

Not all personnel are trained equally. The difference between a rent-a-cop and surveillance agents with prior law enforcement experience is huge.
When a true security threat is present, you want the best of the best. Security guards who have training in law enforcement techniques and tactics are well-equipped to address and manage all kinds of threats in an instant.
Several professional security service companies don’t offer enough information about what you get and how you’re benefiting.
The best security companies highlight how they can save you money. Exercising price transparency shows they’re on your side.
They want to provide you with services that best fit your budget for the long term.
