Our Strategy

In today’s world, the lines between physical and digital are rapidly blurring together. Nowhere is this more evident than in the security world. Where once there was cybersecurity staff protecting networks and physical security staff building and securing gates, today these worlds are colliding. From digital cameras to biometric access systems and network driven enterprises, the cyber and physical security worlds are crashing together.

Converged Security Solutions (CSS) is poised to address the rapidly intermingled world of cyber and physical security. We have brought together two leaders from each world to provide clients with total security solutions. CSS provides state of the art cyber and physical solutions across the entire spectrum of security needs. Our strategy is to leverage our exceptional staff and leading edge technology to provide clients with a new level of security solutions, using business models ranging from complete managed services to on-premise, continuous support.

Our Values

Our goal is to earn the right to be trusted advisors to our clients by providing the best solution for their security needs. Our relationships with clients will be forthright and honest, and will be conducted in a manner to build trust and confidence. This includes the escalation and open discussion of any issues, so that with appropriate application of executive attention on both sides they can be effectively and satisfactorily resolve.
As a services provider, our people are our most valuable resource, and our goal is for every employee to be personally involved and share in the company’s success. CSS is committed to providing an environment which encourages all employees to make full use of their creativity and unique talents; and to providing equitable compensation, good working conditions, and the opportunity for personal development and growth.
We understand that we are a technology-enabled business, and it behooves us to be knowledgeable about current innovations and future trends. At the same time, we are mindful of the mission-critical nature of our work and the value of tried-and-true approaches. We are committed to practical, upgradable, vendor-neutral, and 'future proofed' solutions that will be successful in our customers’ environments.
Third party resources are an essential part of our solution. We are committed to developing and maintaining mutually beneficial relationships with other firms who share our commitment to achieving increasing levels of customer satisfaction through continuing improvements in quality, service, timeliness, and cost. Our dealings with technology and services providers will be fair, honest, and always based on achieving a "win-win."
Our goal is to be a responsible corporate citizen. This includes support of appropriate civic, community, educational, charitable activities; respect for the environment; and the encouragement of our employees to practice do the same as individuals.
