Scott Security Systems and SecurTek Join Forces to Better Serve Vancouver and Lower Mainland Customers


Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) January 07, 2014

It turns out their timing was perfect, according to Scott Security Systems President, Scott Granger.

“We had been exploring ways to take our company to the next level in an extremely competitive and rapidly expanding industry. We had come to the conclusion a partner with the right capacity, access to emerging technologies and a strong national presence was required. That partner would have to be willing not only to invest in our vision, but also had to have the resources to fully support it,” Granger noted.

“As a result of our search,” Granger explains, “SecurTek made arrangements to fly out and introduce themselves. We each liked what we saw and ultimately a deal was struck. Saskatchewan-based SecurTek became that critical partner that would carry us into the future by making it possible for us to keep focusing on what we do best: service, sales and installations.”

Granger soon realized the extent of SecurTek’s commitment to growing its market presence locally, and the vast range of monitoring technologies at its disposal: “They offer exclusive new video, lone worker and access control monitoring. They have integrated technologies that make alarm verification easier and ensure more effective responses in emergency situations.” Granger adds: “while the details of our agreement were being finalized, SecurTek was already training us on their latest Videofied wireless cameras, popular on construction sites and at locations with copper theft problems.”

SecurTek President and CEO Darrell Jones pointed out that SecurTek takes great pride in the relationship it enjoys with its network of independently-owned authorized dealers, noting that Scott Security Systems is an ideal fit and addition to this network:

“Unlike many of the large international monitoring companies, SecurTek does not operate its own installation division. We rely on the knowledge of the local expert dealers who are well aware of the prevailing safety and security concerns in their communities. That is why making our monitoring resources available to Scott Security Systems seemed mutually desirable from all angles. We believe that ultimately, it is the customer who will enjoy the benefits that stem from this strategic alliance.”

Jones also adds that as Vancouver’s Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley neighbourhoods evolve, so do the methods and required approaches needed to keep the people and their valuables safe. Going forward, SecurTek and Scott Security Systems working together makes this goal more easily achievable.

About Scott Security Systems:

Scott Security Systems is a well-respected and trustworthy company which has provided electronic security systems, video surveillance systems and access control to the Vancouver and Lower Mainland marketplace since 1978. Their major focus has been delivering an extremely high level of service to its extensive customer base. They are also certified to install and service ULC approved alarm systems.

About SecurTek:

Technology Icon, Scott McNealy Sees Secure Computing Environments as an Answer to IT’s Challenge Of Consumerization

Sacramento, CA (PRWEB) March 22, 2011

Scott McNealy, former Sun Microsystems Founder and CEO took a hard look at Secure Computing Environments game changing technology and liked what he saw.

So much so, he joined the Advisory Board of SCE as a Special Adviser to the Chairman, effective immediately.

“This product will allow IT Departments to lockdown their systems and comply with the rigors of Sarbanes Oxley. Consumerization is occurring throughout the enterprise space. People are doing work on their personal devices,” stated McNealy.

Scott McNealy is one of the legendary characters of Silicon Valley. Oracle completed its $ 7.4 billion acquisition of Sun in February of 2010. Sun was the fastest company ever to reach the $ 1billion dollar sales level doing so in six years. Sun went on to generate over $ 200 billion in revenue.

“We welcome the insights and direction that McNealy brings to SCE’s board. His reputation and track record are unparalleled in U.S. business,” said Dr. Doug Stone, Major General US Marines Retired.

The Protocol (SCE’s flagship product) allows people to use their consumer devices inside the enterprise while still meeting a corporations security and SOX compliance by moving the locked down security environment off the client device and into the ProtocolTM, allowing IT organizations to provide a configuration managed secure environment on the USB drive, rather than on the client device.

Corporations can move from trying to lock down and lock out client devices, to managing and locking down the corporate data and environment on the USB device. This gives employees the maximum flexibility to work on any device while keeping the corporate data secure and reducing the overall IT infrastructure cost for the corporation.
