A short six months ago, Allied Universal formed as a result of two strong entities that combined to create a world-class organization. Under our new identity, we strive to provide unparalleled service, systems and solutions to serve, secure and care for the people and businesses of our communities, putting our relationships with our employees and clients at the heart of everything we do each and every day.

Such technology leverages information management at its core for a more effective security program. Case in point is the burgeoning role of autonomous data machines (ADMs or robots) that are purposely built for security.
The holiday season is right around the corner. The stores have sales, you have a list and the mall management companies have security. While we don’t often think about the role of security professionals in the retail setting when we head to the mall, we experience their influence with every visit.
