Premise Security’s fate is closely tied with that of the technology that is available to secure the premise. Premise security has the objective of securing the premises physically and virtually to intercept any potential threats to the premise and protect its occupants from these at all times.
Guards, supervisors and managerial officials comprise physical security on-premise. They play a critical role in protecting the premises from undesirable outsiders. They are responsible for safeguarding and maintaining decorum physically within the premises so that the premises’ process of checking in and checking out visitors and employees moves smoothly and efficiently.
On-Premise security covers only one area of securing premises. A second critical area for securing premises is through the virtual protection of the premises. This is handled through the joint efforts of cybersecurity and technology teams and on-premise security officials.
CCTV Systems, Access Control Devices, Sensors, Infrared Devices, Biometric Machines, and Automated Barriers, Fences, and Bollards are essential tools used for securing premises through technology.
This collaborative effort of officials supported by technology manifests itself in certain key processes for on-premise security:
1. Tracking and keeping of records of individuals entering and leaving the premises.
2. Restricting any unauthorized personnel or activities within the premises.
3. Ensuring all rules and regulations of the premises are followed.
4. Employing security measures, keeping officials update on the status of these measures and their outcomes
In premises, physical security and technology work symbiotically because technology supports security officials to smoothly and efficiently handle the process. Security officials on the other hand, keep technological tools effective, relevant, and uninterrupted.
With the advent of new technologies such as face recognition, biometric IDs, RFID readers, smart turnstiles etc. personnel engaged in securing premises are finding it easier to do their job.
