PSA Announces Partnership to Bridge Physical Security and IT
PSA Security Network®, and 1nservice, a vertically integrated IT collaboration organization based in Bellevue, Wash., announce a partnership to “deliver the most expansive convergence of physical and IT security across a broad array of services.”
In a joint statement, the organizations say the new collaboration is the first of its kind in the network technology industry, demonstrating an integrated effort to create a single source for all security services across all industry sectors.
As the landscape for security needs becomes broader, the need for an integrated solution for IT and physical security becomes more evident, according to the announcement.
“This collaboration brings a new level of service and integration to both of our client bases,” says Dave Homet, PSA’s central regional manager. “Our clients cannot only get the highest levels of security from leading edge providers, but now they get the support and training from one source. It’s no longer necessary to have individual vendors servicing different needs.”
As the movement toward an IP-centric environment continues, the collaboration makes sense for all parties involved, according to Tim La Fazia, founder and CEO of Infrastructure Development Corporate, a 1nservice member.
“Much like the convergence of voice onto the network in the early 2000s, physical security finds itself headed in the same direction with similar requirements to assure its planned success,” La Fazia says.
The new collaboration will allow each party to share products and supplier discounts, develop deeper partner relationships with accounts, and leverage their sales and service departments to best serve their clients, according to the announcement.
