Mitie Security moves to acquire niche building-focused security technology specialist Global Aware International Group
Mitie Security has acquired the Global Aware International Group (GAIG), the provider of niche intelligent software and security solutions, for an undisclosed sum. This bold move further accelerates the growth of Mitie’s premium technology-enabled and intelligence-led security solutions and bolsters its credentials in providing truly connected security services for clients.
GAIG’s solutions are specifically designed to support the management of building security across client estates and are now the products of choice in some of the world’s most iconic high-rise commercial buildings. Mitie Security already has a long-standing partnership with the GAIG, which currently provides bespoke technology solutions to a number of Mitie’s major retail security clients.
The cloud-based technology solutions designed by the GAIG allow clients to manage, communicate and audit security activity across their estates online via desktops or hand-held devices. This includes everything from managing routine tasks through to dynamically creating tasks based on incidents or situation changes.
The technology also enables the assignment of tasks to individual users, ensuring actions are completed within defined timescales or escalated to a supervisor where appropriate.
The technology can be used to guide companies through the management of major incidents, providing business continuity support without having to refer to operational procedures when time is critical. Information is automatically captured and shared with appropriate parties on a wholly secure basis.
