New recognition reinforces Kastle’s position as a leading provider of construction site security technology across the country
Washington D.C. (January 19, 2022) – Kastle Systems, a leader in property technology and America’s largest managed security provider for commercial real estate and tenants, has been named to the Technical Risk Underwriters’ (TRU) list of Preferred Security Vendors. TRU is a specialty underwriter of first-party insurance for Course of Construction (COC) risks offering an exclusive suite of insurance products, developed specifically for construction risk managers.
TRU selected Kastle as a Preferred Security Vendor in large part due to the unique Kastle MobileSentry video surveillance solution. MobileSentry enables construction site operators to save on high costs associated with in-person after-hours security guards by employing smart, analytic-enabled cameras with artificial intelligence to monitor the site, and alert live remote Kastle agents when suspicious activity is captured. Agents can then view the video feed in real time to assess the situation and respond if necessary, with live audio talk down deterrents or by calling to law enforcement if necessary. This visual assessment enables proactive response to a threat but also avoids the error and expense of false alarms if no legitimate risk is detected. Also, MobileSentry provides cloud-based storage of relevant video footage for up to two years of easy remote retrieval if needed for forensic investigation purposes.
“Kastle is proud to be named a Preferred Security Vendor by TRU. Our priority at Kastle is to protect our clients’ sites and provide them with the most reliable and cost-efficient security technology and security solutions, like MobileSentry, from groundbreaking day through to ongoing building operations of a completed structure.” said Haniel Lynn, CEO of Kastle. “We are eager to continue our work to protect TRU-insured assets and sites around the country.”
“The solutions and level of service offered by Kastle Systems aligns with our overall need to secure our risks, and TRU is pleased to include Kastle Systems on our approved vendor list. With Kastle, we can provide our insureds with more options for best-in-class security services,” said Joseph Amodeo, Director of Engineering, Technical Risk Underwriters.
