Chicago, IL, September 12, 2016 - Protection 1, the premier full-service business and home security company in the U.S., today announced "The Power to Do More for You" at the ASIS 2016 Conference in Orlando, Florida. The exhibit marks the company's first appearance with ADT since the announcement of their integration in May 2016.
From September 12-14 at booth #3113, Protection 1 will highlight its best-in-class infrastructure and products, including the launch of Cyber Security, and demonstrations of eSuite 2.0 account management tools, Network Managed Services and Remote Video Services.
"We're bringing together the breadth of ADT's footprint with Protection 1's excellent customer service and state-of-the art solutions to provide the ultimate protection for our customers," said Bob Dale, Senior Vice President, National Account Sales, Protection 1. "Our number one priority is to deliver exceptional customer experience, and ASIS 2016 is the perfect venue to showcase our evolving, best-in-class solutions for our future and valued national account customers."
Highlights of Protection 1's 2016 ASIS Conference Exhibit include:
Protection 1 has aligned with best-in-class providers, including Bitdefender, Cisco and Druva, to provide customized disaster recovery and network, endpoint and wireless security solutions to serve the small and mid-sized business market.
- Network Security: Similar to when an alarm system alerts small business owners when their physical space is exposed, the Cisco Meraki Network Security notifies Protection 1 customers when their system is exposed, allowing Protection 1's team of experts to take action before the system is hacked.
- Endpoint Security: While physical alarms monitor any motion that may occur, the Bitdefender Endpoint Security continuously scans digital networks for viruses and malware, and immediately alerts a monitoring center in case of any malicious activity attempts.
- Disaster Recovery: Data is critical to the business, and hackers can potentially obtain and hold valuable data ransom. Disaster Recovery and Data Recovery from Druva will provide businesses with the ability to back up their data to ensure disaster recovery and data recovery on all endpoints and cloud applications while minimizing downtime.
- Wireless Security: In addition to protecting business assets, Protection 1 Cyber Security can turn on premise Internet traffic into customer data. Partnering with Meraki, business owners can obtain critical insights on passerby traffic, in-store time and repeat visitors. Additionally, the system can capture customer emails in-store through Wi-Fi for repeat marketing.
With intuitive functionality, transparent data reporting and groundbreaking design, Protection 1's eSuite 2.0 account management solution sets a new industry standard in customer portals, managing 60,000 sites. Sample features include:
- Map Views – View system activity in map view and zoom in to see more detail in selected map area, now leveraging Google Maps "street view" functionality, providing a more customized recommendation for customer needs
- eSuite 2.0 Mobile – Edit location contacts, place alarm panels on or off test, and create temporary location schedules
