FutureShield - Your independent partner for:
Security • Emergency Management • Critical Infrastructure Protection
FutureShield customers balance efforts ranging from risk assessments, incident management, facility management, emergency response to business continuity. They are also expected to have a good understanding of IT and physical security convergence. That’s a lot of knowledge to be contained in what is often a very small department.
FutureShield assists our customers by helping them automate processes for security, emergency management, and business continuity. For many, the only tools they have are pen and paper, Word, Excel, or a home grown database. We are proud to work with many organizations that are part of the critical infrastructure sectors to assist them in the transition to technology adoption.We also translate your requirements to your internal IT. As technology AND security/emergency specialists we speak your language as well as that of your IT department.
FutureShield does not supply cameras, access control, guards, gates, or guns. We do supply software and other technical solutions to assist you in better managing the business processes within your department.
FutureShield works on behalf of our customers rather than our vendors. This mandate allows us to maintain an open process in evaluating solutions that have the most current and leading edge technology combined with vendor longevity. You will find on our website many products that we have implemented on numerous occasions and consider the gold standard for the industry; however, we work for you the customer and our commitment is to always act in your best interest.
"We all did great at the Windsor/Essex EOCs, for the most part, and the Detroit EOC was impressed with how we could
get info to them ahead of the game...their IT guys have it down pat there and assisted us with laptop and
access. The Emergency Management software tools you provided worked excellent, when radios and other online communications failed!
Bravo, and thanks for such a great solution, I am very impressed...especially the automatic updates, and link to MASAS."
- Dan Metcalfe, EW-EMS President OAEM - 2011
“Amazing work and support during all phases of initial IT consultation to long-term implementation. I could not have asked for a better level of service and professionalism which is ongoing. Never had a more client-focused and attentive service provision from any company before or since.”
- Sgt. C. Zelezney, Emergency Preparedness Coordinator - University of Windsor, Campus Community Police - April 21, 2010
