While branch bank security is somewhat cookie-cutter, designs for protection at the major business offices of financial institutions have moved to more sophisticated, integrated needs.

For example, Diebold of North Canton, Ohio, has security and fire system offerings as a key component of Patriot Bank’s new two-story flagship office in Tulsa, Okla. Patriot Bank will have 24/7 real-time access to a variety of security and enterprise data, enabling a more proactive approach to enhancing security and ensuring organizational efficiency.

“When we decided to build a new headquarters three times the size of our current main branch, we wanted to design something inviting and secure for both our customers and our employees,” says Jeff Snow, area vice president, retail manager, Patriot Bank. Diebold’s monitoring center will protect the bank’s headquarters with alarms, access control, surveillance solutions and alarm monitoring.
