Wednesday, March 2, 2016

MCLEAN, Va.—Global Guardian, a provider of executive protection, launched its new Sentry division, providing remote video surveillance monitoring from its operations center here outside of Washington, D.C.

"Sentry was launched in response to client requests to provide around-the-clock protection in-and-around homes, offices and outdoor facilities. Adding Sentry as a service offering is an example of Global Guardian's continuing commitment to meeting client demand for a diverse range of security services," Matt Boccia, Global Guardian's COO, said in a prepared statement.

Sentry can give intruders verbal commands through installed speakers, initiate audible alarms with strobes, and contact designated client representatives or local police authorities.

According to the announcement, “Sentry's surveillance platform is also compatible with and can augment customers' existing camera systems and security and fire alarms.”
