Perimeter security – Three reasons why Businesses should strongly consider upgrading their outer limits

As more and more Government and commercial entities face up to the reality of increased and more sophisticated attacks on their facilities, the spotlight needs to be placed on a thorough perimeter security audit, to ensure that critical infrastructure is adequately protected. Whether your premises is guarded by outdated fencing solutions in need of a radical overhaul, or your perimeter has recently been compromised, despite having the most advanced perimeter security in place, your strategy should always evolve with the changing environment and emerging threats at its core.

As reference, your physical security perimeter refers to the systems and structures in place, on the borders of your property, to prevent unauthorized access, within your perimeter. In this article, we explore a number of constant factors, which should motivate a thorough inspection and potential upgrades to your current physical perimeter security protection.

More frequent incidents of attempted intrusion

A superior physical perimeter security barrier should be primarily erected, both to detect and deter unauthorized access to your facilities. While many entities invest substantial amounts in measures such as, access control, CCTV monitoring, and security personnel, it is critical to remember that a robust perimeter security barrier remains your first line of defense, against intruders, activists would be criminals. A defense type 4 rated barrier, such as they ClearVu invisible wall, or a more specialized perimeter barrier, such as the Shadow Wall, or Reinforced, where threats become more frequent and serious in their nature.

Vehicle-Borne threats have become more commonplace.

As perimeter security advances, the evolving threat from the outside naturally follows suit. With an integrated security barrier of barriers, razor mesh fencing and/or fence toppings, making on-foot penetration almost impossible, criminals have now resorted to using high powered vehicles, in an attempt to gain unauthorized access to facilities.

The Risk of Projectile Attacks in High Threat Areas
