Dunbar Introduces 360° Managed Security Service for Both Cyber and Physical Threats, Opens Advanced Security Operations Center

Cybersecurity, Security Systems and Protective Services Business Lines Integrated Under New Dunbar Security Solutions Division Hunt Valley, MD – Dunbar, America’s largest independent, full-service security organization, today formally unveiled its Dunbar Security Solutions division, a 360° managed security service for cyber and physical threats, marked by the opening of Dunbar’s state-of-the-art Security Operations Center (SOC) in Hunt Valley, Maryland. The new division fully integrates Dunbar’s existing Cybersecurity, Security Systems and Protective Services businesses and provides mid- to large-sized customers with enhanced protection against a full range of threats by monitoring facilities and networks, dispatching guards, and conducting threat assessments from the SOC.

“Cyber attacks are one of the biggest security concerns for companies today, but cyber is just one piece of the puzzle. Digital and physical threats have converged, exposing businesses to new security risks daily,” said Darren McCue, President of Dunbar Security Solutions. “Since most digital breaches also have a physical component, Dunbar is uniquely positioned to fill a gap in the security market. By integrating our security solutions and monitoring across the full spectrum of threats via the Security Operations Center, we are able to deliver something no one else in the industry can – 360 degree protection for our clients.”

There are more than 80 million cyber security events annually and more than 70 percent of attacks are thought to be undetected, according to recent industry reports. With 55 percent of attacks in 2014 carried out by “insiders” – actors with internal access (physical or remote) to an organization’s systems – there is growing necessity for security solutions that monitor and respond to both physical and digital risks.

Traditionally, companies have relied on several disparate service providers to address their cyber and physical security needs. But communications breakdowns between providers result in inefficiencies that leave vulnerable openings in coverage.

By providing expertly trained security personnel, cutting-edge security products, and the latest defenses against cyber attacks, Dunbar Security Solutions delivers the most efficient, comprehensive enterprise security using the most advanced technologies available.

From the SOC, Dunbar’s team of seasoned security analysts compile and analyze security data for customers from a wide variety of digital and physical sources, including servers, firewalls, log data, intrusion detection, IP cameras, guards, access control, desktop systems, social media and more. The facility is staffed 24/7, providing organizations with constant, sophisticated monitoring and immediate responses to threats.

“Security is in our DNA at Dunbar. As threats, both physical and digital, become more complex and difficult to identify, we have the experience and expertise needed to protect our customers and their evolving security needs,” said Kevin Dunbar, President and CEO of Dunbar. “Dunbar Security Solutions and our new Security Operations Center demonstrate our commitment to providing the industry’s best risk management through aggressive, continued investment in innovation and technology.”

Since 1960, Dunbar Protective Services has provided professional teams of supervised, expertly trained security personnel to commercial, industrial and government organizations throughout the United States. Dunbar Security Systems debuted in 1983, building on a strong history of security to bring integrated solutions to Dunbar customers. In 2012, Dunbar Cybersecurity launched to meet a growing industry need, providing innovative cybersecurity solutions and offering the same level of protection for digital assets that Dunbar has provided for physical assets for over 90 years.

A leader in security for nearly a century, Dunbar has a broad range of deep expertise in every corner of the security solutions portfolio. The full integration of the Dunbar’s Cybersecurity, Security Systems and Protective Services businesses enables the company to see potential threats from every angle and provide unparalleled, customized protection against them.
