Security strategies for private businesses have become increasingly complex in countries around the world. Businesses designed to serve large numbers of people, unrelated in any way to political or religious issues, are often caught in the cross-fire of violence, or are the targets of violence when the goal is to garner the most attention. In developing an overall security and loss prevention strategy, the under vehicle scanning system has become part of the conversation, but is it right for your business? Here are three questions to consider.
Does your current method of facility security call for under vehicle inspections? If your facilities currently have controlled access, then the answer to this question is, yes. Your company has already recognized the need for a secure perimeter, so omitting an under vehicle scanning system is a glaring vulnerability. Often, the system’s presence is enough to deter an attempted unlawful entry, or thwart a potential attack.
Does your current method of vehicle inspection put your employees at risk of physical harm or death? If your security personnel are still using traditional wands with mirrors for under vehicle inspections, you can answer yes to this question also. If it is necessary to inspect the under carriage of vehicles entering your controlled space, you are putting your employees at grave risk by not having them complete this task remotely with an under vehicle scanning system.
Under vehicle scanners remove the risk of injury and loss of life, because they rely on hi-tech cameras embedded in the scanner that capture the images of any vehicles passing over them. They are capable of producing accurate images in color with no distortion. It doesn’t matter if the car is parked over the scanner, or if it passes over. The images are equally clear and defined. The data can then be analyzed remotely and stored.
Is your business concerned about securing proprietary information, making sure it doesn’t leave the premises? If you answer yes to this question, you should know that an under vehicle scanning system can provide add-on security features like capturing license plate numbers, automatic make and model comparisons, top, bottom, and side scans, and other security features designed to also secure your business from the inside out.
If you’re already using controlled access entry, you’re as concerned about loss prevention as outside threats entering the premises, or you’re currently putting employees at risk with an outdated system, you may be a candidate for an under vehicle scanning system.
