Company Launches as the Single Source Provider of Managed Network Services and Physical Security for North American Multi-Site Businesses

PITTSBURGH, March 28, 2017 – Today, Vector Security, Inc., a top 5 integrator of physical security solutions, announces the integration of two of its business divisions – their National Accounts Division (NAD) and their wholly-owned subsidiary, Industry Retail Group (IRG) – to now operate under a single brand. Vector Security NAD and IRG are now combined to form Vector Security® Networks, the single source solution for managed network services and physical security serving multi-site businesses across North America.

“Our primary focus will be harnessing the tenure and expertise of our teams to better serve our nearly 90,000 customer sites, as well as pursuing new relationships,” said John Taggart, Vice President, Vector Security Networks. “We are two very strong companies on our own, but together under Vector Security Networks, multi-site businesses have access to the best in security and managed services under one roof.”

“Behind the scenes, our two teams have been working as one,” Michael T. Grady, Executive Vice President, Vector Security Networks, added. “We are now officially bringing them together as a one source solution under the Vector Security Networks brand. Our name will transition over the next several months, but our customers will still experience the same level of attention and support they have come to expect from us over the years.”

From NOC monitoring, device management and PCI compliance, to alarm management, loss prevention and video surveillance, Vector Security Networks is the one source for solutions that provide unsurpassed business intelligence and exceptional customer experiences that support its clients’ objectives. The move makes Vector Security Networks the largest North American retail provider of managed security solutions in a broadband-based, application-driven marketplace.

“Vector Security Networks leads with our unequaled expertise in security, having been a leading provider of customized security solutions for more than 40 years, and with roots dating back to 1752,” said Art Miller, Vice President of Marketing for Vector Security. “Coupled with our dependable managed network services offerings, we bring our customers quality network services at a lower cost of ownership, the convenience of having a single point of contact, and streamlined integration of both physical security and broadband solutions.”
