Security as a Service: Smart New Payment Model Saves Money & Improves Protection

Why hasn’t your organization signed up yet?

The physical and digital security of your organization is non-negotiable. Everything hinges on keeping assets and employees safe while you do business. That’s why many companies sink large amounts of money into their security systems. You probably do too, if you’re involved in managing security.

But, as you may be aware, there are issues with traditional security purchasing – especially now in the face of economic stresses related to COVID-19.

The biggest issue companies are facing is obsolescence. Security equipment loses value rapidly, just as a car loses value the second you drive it off the lot. Security system components notoriously wear out before you have the funds for replacement, or worse become outdated when new technology is introduced. At the end of your system’s lifespan, you can be left with a huge bill to replace or upgrade all or part of it. Not convenient (and potentially devastating) if your operation also is struggling financially.

If only there was a system that didn’t become obsolete, or is there?

Prime’s Business Continuity Update

Employees Working Remotely

Our teams are well equipped to perform their job functions remotely through our proactive measures by providing remote workstations, softphone capabilities, VPN access, internet bandwidth, and access to required applications for colleagues.

Limited Travel

We have eliminated all unnecessary travel and have either rescheduled face to face meetings or have conducted virtual meetings instead. As we continue to operate the business, we’ve taken action in our dispatching to avoid sending employees to areas that are designated quarantine or containment zones as designated by the CDC or local health authorities. We will continue to work in all other areas as usual.

The health and safety of our colleagues, their families, and our communities are the highest priority. We are encouraging everyone to follow the preventive measures recommended by the CDC to stay healthy and slow the spread of the virus, including:

  • Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
  • No handshakes
  • Minimize large group meeting
  • If you are feeling sick or one of your family members has become sick stay home or work remotely if possible
  • Essential travel only
  • Follow CDC guidelines

Prime Communications is well-positioned and prepared to work through this pandemic. As we execute this plan and work through these unprecedented times, we ask for your patience. We will continue to communicate often of any updates and other measures we’re taking as the situation progresses.

How Cloud-Based SD-Branch Technology Will Help Multi-Site Enterprises Streamline Networking & Reduce Costs

The popularity of legacy WAN (wide area network) systems are waning. Businesses are increasing traffic over connections, causing bandwidth issues. The amount of data transferred over WAN requires a large, expensive pipeline. WAN can be costly because of the robust equipment requirements at each remote location. Furthermore, networking personnel must be onsite for complex, time-consuming, installation and maintenance. As technology advances, WAN legacy systems are becoming outdated, and add-ons aren’t always as successful as we wish they were.

These factors are particularly challenging in an era when companies have a growing need for rapid deployments. Enter software-defined wide area networking (SD-WAN), a cloud-based technology that has been a boon for businesses with multiple sites or locations.


The Key Differences Between Unified Security and Integrated Security

The inception of electronic security systems began in a world of card access and analog CCTV deployments, where the system operations, although straightforward, were fragmented and siloed. There were one set of monitors for video surveillance, another for card access and so on down the line depending on the complexity of the security solution. IT departments were smaller, and typically the equipment provider was heavily relied upon for service and support.


Facial Recognition Software is Not as Scary as You Think

It’s amazing how many imagined technologies from old science fiction books and movies are becoming realities these days. Recently, one of these “future-world” technologies exploded into tangible present-day prominence: facial recognition. As intriguing as the technology is, there is definitely controversy centered around facial recognition preventing many from taking advantage of its benefits for crime mitigation. In some cases, hesitation to utilize facial recognition could potentially cost lives. The purpose of this writing is to provide reassurance and guidance to those considering a facial recognition solution, and by doing so provide you with information to help you to move forward with confidence.

In this article, we would like to dispel a few myths surrounding security-based facial recognition software and increase your knowledge in this reliable and safe technology.


How to Conquer Vaping in Schools and Get Students Back to Learning

Kids will be kids. It’s their job to find ways to fit in and push back against authority. In the previous decades, this natural tendency has resulted in challenging trends ranging from ducktail hairdos, sagging jeans and disruptive toys, such as the “clicker-clackers” of the 1970s, to serious, illegal habits such as street racing, drinking, smoking and sniffing solvents. It’s a never-ending challenge for parents and educators.

One of the latest worrisome youth trends is e-cigarettes, or “vaping,” an activity that is putting kids in danger and taking too much focus off learning. Teachers and administrators are taking drastic, time-consuming action to fight the trend with little to no positive impact. However new technology, according to first-time users, has all but stopped vaping in some schools.
