SITE SECURITY ANALYSIS

The first step you need to take when beginning to formulate an impenetrable system is to analyze where you currently stand with the security of your organization. Megasystems Security will do this by putting together a detailed report which will look at all different vulnerabilities of your building’s, taking into account the level of violence and crime in the neighborhood, and the security of neighboring businesses and buildings. Considering the layout of the property, the accessibility of exits for employees in the case of a fire event, the windows and doors that pose a risk. All this is in order to get an idea of the potential issues and possible pitfalls that you may come across so that you as a business owner can mediate your risk.
After compiling all the necessary data, a report will be delivered, listing personalized recommendations for how the security of the business could be improved to its utmost potential. This report will include many practical suggestions for keeping intruders and unwanted guests away.

TARGET HARDENING

Ballistic protection 

To ensure that your establishment and the employees within it are safe from potentially fatal criminal attacks, attention has to be given to making the building immune to firearms. Ballistic protection involves bulletproofing key entry points, doors, glass windows, walls and creating a safe designated area that people in the building will be able to take cover in an active shooter situation.

Bulletproof Glass

Since windows and any other areas that are made out of glass pose a high risk of penetration, it is imperative that access points made of bullet resistant glass. All regular glass windows and glass partitions should have special security film that holds the glass together in the event of detonation of an explosive device.

Security Bollards

Security bollards are another way to strengthen the security of your building. These unsightly steel posts, provide a multidimensional purpose. They physically block intruders from entering the property easily, especially in vehicles, and they give off an ominous visual presentation too which can deter potential thieves. They also protect pedestrians passing in front of the property from any vehicular attacks.

Fences and Gates

A simple and old-fashioned solution, fences and gates have always been used to enclose high-security areas. Nowadays there are so many options and ways to make these enclosures smart. Electronic gates, programmed to allow only qualified individuals entry, can keep intruders at bay.
Working with a Megasystems Security, you can determine which options work best for your unique needs. Depending on the nature of your property, you may opt for a harsher and more ominous deterrent such as barbed wire fences. If you want a more sophisticated appearance but a similar level of protection, another anti-climb fence such as an ornamental iron fence which also has protruding curved sharp points at the top may be a more suitable option.
If your business is equipped with a parking lot, having a gate in the parking lot is crucial. Parking lot gates come in an assortment of options, with possibilities such as an arm which acts as a barrier for vehicles who are denied access, as well as gates that slide or swing open and grant controlled access to qualified individuals.

Video Monitoring

Perhaps most important of all is having a properly installed security cameras system, to keep a 24-hour account every day of all the goings-on in the building and to instantly alert dispatch in the event of any suspicious activity.
As with many other security measures, this will serve the purpose of being able to pinpoint any criminals on video, dispatch police immediately to prevent theft, and also to deter possible burglars.
Megasystems offer a variety of different solutions for smart video monitoring services that can be tailored to your specific needs.

Maintenance Program

Every security system, no matter how efficient, must be checked periodically and maintained to ensure that it is always functioning optimally. These checks should be regularly scheduled and never overlooked so that there are no glitches in the program. If even one element of a security system is faulty, the entire formula can collapse, and the security of the business is at risk. To avoid making your system vulnerable to malfunctions, it is wise to invest in a security plan that involves a security professional conducting routine inspections. It is recommended to schedule these checkups frequently, even every month if possible, and at the very least, annually. Megasystems Security will work with you based on the equipment you have to tailor the best maintenance program to cover your systems.
