Physical Asset Security Services by Versar

Protecting Federal Facilities & Critical Assets

Physical security is often overlooked -- and its importance underestimated -- in favor of more technical threats such as hacking, malware, and cyberespionage. However, breaches of physical security can be carried out with brute force with little or no technical knowledge on the part of an attacker.

Versar Security Systems (VSS) works with our clients to ensure physical sites are adequately hardened against accidents or attacks.  Such measures include fencing, locks, and access control. Physical locations are monitored using surveillance cameras and notification systems, such as intrusion detection sensors. Disaster recovery policies and procedures are tested on a regular basis to ensure safety and to reduce the time it takes to recover from disruptive man-made or natural disasters.  VSS executes all three elements seamlessly and holistically ensuring security across the enterprise.

VSS easily integrates with existing systems to safeguard assets and personnel.  We offer robust electronic security options from access control and intrusion detection to surveillance – all while ensuring compliance with government identity protection rules such as FICAM, HSPD-12 and the National Industrial Security Program Operating Manual (NISPOM). We have completed work in many Underwriters Laboratory (UL) 2050 compliant sites. Our expertise extends to protecting, maintaining and updating Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility (SCIF) areas in accordance with Director of Central Intelligence Directive (DCID) 1/21.
