Provinding Seamless Security for the Education Sector

Essentra Security is working hard to provide seamless security for the education sector. Security News Desk asked Sue Woodcock, Marketing Manager, why the education sector was so important for Essentra.

“It has been a market sector in which we have actively developed advanced technology for ID solutions over the past 20 years,” she said. “We have specialist expertise from our team who understand the requirements and know what is important to the education sector. We have also developed close working relationships with other providers in the supply chain to ensure that we can always provide ‘best in class’ products that meet the exacting requirements of schools, colleges and universities. Essentra Security, formerly Securit and Payne Security are entirely focussed on ID solutions and this places us in a unique position to share with our education sector customers our product and market knowledge to enable them to achieve maximum advantage from the latest ID technologies.”

Woodcock went on to explain why she felt so strongly about supporting the sector, saying, “Schools, colleges and universities provide a multitude of opportunities for would-be thieves. Audio visual, scientific and sports equipment, laptops and PCs, as well as personal property, can be easy pickings in these establishments where the emphasis is on offering a welcoming atmosphere for legitimate visitors and a relaxed, fear free learning environment for students and staff. Deterring graffiti and vandalism can also be a challenge, but of paramount importance to all those involved in education is the duty of care to ensure that students are safe and secure.”

Essentra solutions support the balance needed in education security by introducing access control and visitor management systems as part of a seamless integrated solution, which includes other security systems such as CCTV to verify the identity and allow the free flow of students, staff and authorised visitors, whilst deterring and detecting anti-social behaviour and criminal activity.
