The who’s who of security
To help business owners achieve more holistic protection of their premises, Telstra has combined their mobile network with the security expertise of Telstra SNP Monitoring (TSM) to produce Telstra Business Protect.
Business Protect is an nbn™ ready wireless alarm monitoring service that helps manage your business’s security when your work premises are unattended by keeping your alarms wirelessly connected to the security monitoring centre via the Telstra Mobile Network.
For customers who are already with Telstra for their networking solutions, Business Protect consolidates your services. This means you only need to deal with one provider across a number of different technology solutions, so you can focus on other areas of your business.
Real world problems
In order to help keep your physical assets safe your business should be protected with at least an alarm system that monitors the security of doors and windows.
When you sign up with Business Protect, a security specialist from Telstra SNP Monitoring (TSM) will assess your current setup with a free security check. They will be able to help you ensure your system adequately covers the most important parts of your business, and make recommendations to address any vulnerability.
The new system will operate wirelessly from within your business premises, and transmit security alarm information straight to the team at TSM, meaning your security cannot be easily tampered with. And importantly, is nbn-ready network ready as it does not require a fixed phone line.
Get on the front foot
Security should be about active protection, rather than passive reaction. You don’t want to be caught out when a simple tweak to your system could have saved you money in the long run. If it’s been a while since you’ve looked over your systems, it may be time to have a licensed security technician complete a health check to assess where the any weaknesses are.
