Brivo Releases Physical Security Assessment Tool for Businesses
Brivo’s new physical security assessment tool helps businesses evaluate the risk of their facilities.
BETHESDA, Md. — Brivo, a leader in cloud-based access control systems, announces today the release of its new physical security assessment tool.
The tool was created to help businesses calculate the security risk of their facilities. The tool provides businesses with a grade based on answers to a series of questions.
The questions are designed to assess physical security risks in today’s environment, asking things such as “How many employees/tenants need access to your building” and “How many doors do you need to secure?”
Brivo says it hopes the new tool will help small businesses better understand the need for increased physical security measures and is encouraging all business owners and facility managers to use the tool.
“We believe that this scorecard will be very beneficial for those businesses who are looking to better understand their physical security risk,” says Steve Van Till, president and CEO of Brivo. “When armed with the right knowledge, facility managers are better equipped to improve their physical security measures before they are faced with a real problem.”
A recent market survey conducted by Brivo discovered a massive gap between perceived safety and actual facility vulnerabilities.
The survey found that 61% of facility managers were not concerned about their location’s physical security, yet 40% were still using lock and key and 62% used standard keycards and fobs.
Brivo was acquired by Eagle Eye Network’s Dean Drako in 2015 but has continued to operate as a standalone company.

The statement “Brivo was acquired by Eagle Eye Networks in 2015 but has continued to operate as a standalone company.” is incorrect and would appreciate it if you can correct it.
In 2015, Brivo was acquired by Dean Drako, a serial entrepreneur who currently serves as the Chairman of the Board. Dean also owns Eagle Eye Networks, among other companies.
