Technology Companies

Operating Environment

For Technology businesses, maintaining a secure environment is important, but controls and operations should be as transparent and frictionless as possible. Technology companies often have multiple and/or disparate physical security systems and processes that may be attributed to expansions or acquisitions. Technology companies can be either Landlords or Tenants – depending on their scale and operations. They may also employ third party contractors to augment workforce or have vendor scenarios in their respective facilities.

Many Technology Companies also have Data Center security requirements and have on and offshore operations – though Cloud computing is driving the need the need to maintain physical servers down.

There is often a tight relationship between physical and logical security in Technology firms. The protection of intellectual property, information, and prototypes are at the forefront of consideration. Common identity, access management and security operation requirements in Tech Companies are:
