We work with education providers to ensure the safety and security of all those who attend, and protect valuable assets on campus
Security Services for Education - Schools & Campuses
We work with education providers to ensure the safety and security of all those who attend and ensure that we protect your valuable assets. We take a preventative approach to ensure that potential risks are identified and managed with a security plan. We have services available to provide 24/7, all year-round protection.
We work with each education provider to assess areas of risk and develop a solution that protects your people, assets, and information. The extra precautions for the pandemic now play a important part in our everyday work.

Collaboration between IT teams and their physical security counterparts is essential for providing a sound defence against security threats.
A fully secure digital approach considers both network and physical security, along with user convenience, risk mitigation, and scalability. For many organisations, a small fraction of the IT upgrade budget could pay for a comprehensive physical security upgrade that would address weak links in older physical access control systems.
We need to explore the role that physical security plays in combining modern technology and improving together with cyber security.
Campus security professionals realise that the status quo cannot be sustained, as security vulnerabilities inherent with magnetic stripe and 125kHz proximity technologies introduce a more serious threat.
Many are looking for a credential experience that is not only more secure, but also have a customer care role, user friendly for staff and aligned with student expectations in an increasingly competitive higher education marketplace. A role change combined with the latest technology.
We need to examine how a migration to smart cards, and eventually to mobile, will transform the way higher education approaches access control and engage physical security in a more effective way cost effective way.
