Security of your business is one of the most important investments you can make. However, with so many companies vying for your attention, how do you make sure you’re choosing wisely? The answer is quite simple, provided you follow a few rules of thumb.

A Multi-Faceted Approach

Different businesses require different levels of security. Similarly, one security measure may not be enough. CCTV can send a clear message to criminals to stay away, but these can be backed up with security grilles, alarm systems, or safes for cash and items of value. A good security company will consult with you to find a bespoke, multi-layered security solution that is perfect for you.

24/7 Callouts and Monitoring

21st century security systems are amazing in themselves, but nothing compares to knowing your business has an army of security professionals behind it. Look for firms who offer alarm and CCTV monitoring, as well as emergency call-out services. Within seconds of your security being breached, these services can contact you or your nominated contacts and be on their way to secure your premises. Monitoring services can even respond in cases of fire, carbon monoxide and gas leakages, and floods.

Emergency Glazing and Boarding

There’s an old adage that says that wherever there’s glass there’s the potential for burglary. Look for security services that also offer emergency glazing and boarding, as you won’t want to waste time calling an emergency glazier as well as your security firm. Nothing is worse for business than a broken window, so working with a one-stop shop will ensure the situation is resolved quickly.

Don’t leave anything to chance when securing your business. The right firms offer multi-tiered and bespoke solutions backed up with 24/7 support. You’ll rest easily with the right security.
