Retail crime has led the news in 2014. Identity theft, skimming, data breaches, and credit card fraud are in the common lexicon. In blog posts published this year we covered a range of topics: The need to fight retail loss on multiple fronts; preventing internal loss resulting from employee theft, fraud and mistakes; and the importance of protecting your business, customers and partners from cybercrime. A common thread among these topics is the need for businesses to deploy safeguards, counter measures and processes to combat seemingly relentless attacks.
An article by Peter Johnston on the National Retail Federation website quotes former Department of Homeland Security Deputy Undersecretary for Cybersecurity, Mark Weatherford, from his NRFtech 2014 presentation: “Cybersecurity has evolved. It is now a critical business issue, not just a security issue.” Recognizing that security attacks are not just perpetrated by rogue governments, terrorist organizations, and shadowy crime syndicates, Weatherford continued, “We need to pay more attention to the people to whom we give the keys to the kingdom.”
We completely agree. Dunbar Armored invests in developing new technologies, products and services to protect our clients from external and internal threats. Our innovations are evident in advanced cybersecurity services and some unexpected areas. These include our safes. Yes, safes.
Just as the automobile has developed from iron and sheet metal into a computer on wheels, today’s safes have advanced in ways unimaginable just a decade ago. Dunbar Armored Cash Manager Safes are at the apex of 21st century safe technology. Physical deterrence remains a safe’s frontline defense. Multiple layers of hardened steel resists heat, concussive and explosive forces, drilling and other physical attacks. That is the brawn. But as in the human body, Cash Manager Safes have a brain – software – that controls the brawn; giving the hulk of steel cognition and the ability to communicate. Seriously.
Dunbar Armored Cash Manager Safes are manufactured just for us using patented designs and technologies. Features include:
- Wireless communication that eliminates the need for a dedicated phone line, broadband access or network integration
- Secure reporting down to the transaction level, including audit and reconciliation to deter and detect internal shrinkage
- Remote monitoring and alerts, including mobile device support
- Permission-based access
- Web diagnostics, maintenance and upgrades
- Counterfeit detection that recognizes and flags bogus bills
- Dual-door access that reduce service calls by 65 percent
Cash Manager Safes not only maintain the safety and integrity of cash management, they also increase productivity. By eliminating deposit preparation and expediting cashier checkout, more time can be allocated to higher value activities.
This sophisticated technology does not compromise reliability. Cash Manager Safes average only one service call per year. And if the unlikely occurs, field support is available 7 days a week.
