Just scroll down the many client testimonials crowding the website of Tom Powers’ company Powered Protection — and you can see for yourself that the man knows what he’s doing. He’s gathered a team of physical and computer network security professionals in Buffalo who know what today’s companies need, relative to their size, industry, and infrastructure, and they help us assure our clients truly “get secure”.
That’s why we’ve “adopted” his company as our go-to third-party security firm that does it all — from surveillance systems and security alarm systems to fire alarm systems, all the way to computer network security that, taken together, is “all of a piece,” which enables Buffalo small businesses and larger enterprises alike to say, “We have complete security for our business.”
In the world of IT security, the focus for many companies has been just on cyber or network security. Most people don’t give an extra thought to the physical protection of their expensive hardware and premises. But, we’re here to make the very important point that businesses need both physical security and computer network security in a combined, concerted defense against all threats to their IT infrastructure.
You Need More Than Just Computer Security
When business owners realize that they’re only covering half their security contingencies, they start looking around for security camera sellers and other additional security services to supplement their computer network security.
Well, no longer do you Buffalo businessmen and women have to shop around for physical security services, because, through our partner Powered Protection, we can now offer a Total Security package that’s feasible and within reach of the average small business owner!
What is Physical Security and Why Is It So Important?
Physical security is the protection of personnel, hardware, software, networks, and data from physical actions and events that could cause serious loss or damage to an enterprise, agency or institution. This includes protection from fire, flood, natural disasters, burglary, theft, vandalism, and terrorism.
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 and little or no technical knowledge on the part of an attacker.
Physical security has three important components: access control, surveillance, and testing. Obstacles should be placed in the way of potential attackers and physical sites should be reinforced against accidents, attacks or environmental disasters. Such hardening measures can include fencing, locks, access control cards, biometric access control systems and fire suppression systems.
Second, physical locations should be monitored using surveillance cameras and notification systems, such as intrusion detection sensors, heat sensors, and smoke detectors.
Third, disaster recovery policies and procedures should be tested on a regular basis to ensure safety and to reduce the time it takes to recover from disruptive man-made or natural disasters.

Here’s Lorenzo N., talking about what an awesome job Tom and his team did for his company:
“Powered Protection Inc. did an outstanding job with the installation of our surveillance system. Their salesman was very knowledgeable and provided a competitive price. The installers arrived on time and completed the job as described to me. When the job was complete, they cleaned up and showed me how to use the system. I would highly recommend Powered Protection Inc.”
And, hear it from the horse’s mouth belonging to Scott L.:
“All I can tell you is that Powered Protection was recommended to me by a friend… and now I cannot wait to recommend them to another friend. Never had a better experience. In a world of craziness… Tom and his employees KNOW the business… they get the job done right the first time. Just an all around wonderful experience!”
