Protection 1 serves the healthcare and pharmaceutical industry with a high level of customer service that produces exceptional outcomes. We know your business and the daunting array of challenges you face. We understand that your need to provide a caring, safe environment must be balanced with daily business and operational challenges. Budget constraints can result in less than optimal resources for your security team, so we help make every dollar work harder.
Pharmaceuticals are high value assets and the target of thieves anywhere along the supply chain, from manufacturing and transport to storage and at the point of sale. There is also the threat of product tampering, spoiled or counterfeit medicines, organized crime, and accidental or intentional product tainting. Losing temperature-sensitive prescription drugs due to a power loss or human error can cost your organization millions of dollars.

Healthcare & Pharmaceutical Security Solutions
Hosted and Managed Services
Many healthcare facilities with disparate systems lack the resources and ability to control or report centrally. With our hosted and managed services, you can optimize your existing infrastructure and internal resources with minimal investment for services such as issuance of badges, server hosting and alarm verification. We can monitor and perform daily health checks of your business security system to ensure continuity—if one of your security panels goes offline, you can be notified in order to address the issue quickly. Our central stations can monitor cameras strategically placed inside and/or outside of your facility, and observe and record activities such as security breaches, alarm verification and remote guard tours.
Temperature and Critical Condition Monitoring
If your facility has a pharmacy suite that stocks temperature-controlled drugs on-site, it needs to be monitored or you could experience a significant financial loss. Time and again, you read about a refrigeration unit breaking down or an employee inadvertently leaving a door ajar over the weekend, costing millions in high value pharmaceuticals. Protection 1 will provide a virtual monitoring and maintenance system that performs a daily health check of temperature devices while continuously monitoring the threshold and static temperatures of coolers. For auditing and compliance purposes, our temperature monitoring solution can provide reporting on a daily basis or on a moment’s notice.
Access Control Systems
Auditing of access control activities at a facility no longer has to eat up valuable maintenance staff time by following an outdated manual process that employs spreadsheets and handwritten logs. Protection 1 will customize an integrated system for you that automates many aspects of your security program with a labor-saving electronic solution for auditing and compliance purposes while protecting your people, property, assets and vital information.
IP Video Surveillance Systems
Video surveillance of sensitive areas is ideal for documentation purposes, and in some instances is required to maintain compliance. Monitoring main entrances, pharmacy suites, storage rooms, administration offices and patient record rooms helps deter theft and property crimes while improving staff safety. IP security systems are increasingly viewed as a smart alternative to analog equipment because this newer technology allows remote software updates and very high resolution images.
