As security technology and the threat landscape evolves in the guarding sector, enterprises have added K-9s, outdoor and indoor robots, x-ray machines, drones and other methods as tools to stay on top of threats. For instance, Brookfield Properties Retail Group (formerly GGP Inc.), for the past decade, has used canine units supplied by a security officer firm to help search and secure its retail properties and prevent disorderly conduct, as well as deter suspicious activity during mall hours.

In our December 2019 Guarding Report & Top Security Officer Firms, David Komendat, Vice President and Chief Security Officer at Boeing, reveals that Boeing has explored the use of robots, drones, smart camera systems, new badging kiosks and more to improve security. Komendat says, “We need reliable technologies that will improve security in the workplace and be more efficient.”

Here is a selection of solutions that security executives and enterprises can use to mitigate risk, deter bad actors and better protect their brand, constituents and assets.
