As one of the largest providers of security nationwide, Protos is uniquely qualified to address and better meet the unique challenges that security and facility managers face.

Protos clients can easily request security service in one of three ways: phone, email or online. Requests are processed through our 24/7/365 dispatch team in Roanoke, VA. Once our dispatch team receives the request, an email is sent to the client confirming that dispatch is working to obtain coverage. Each request is also immediately placed into the Protos purpose-built queue so it is prioritized with the proper amount of urgency.

Protos' proprietary workforce management software platform was designed specifically to fit the needs of national companies and is unrivaled in the security industry.

With Protos, you receive security services at a national level while being serviced by locally owned and operated businesses passionate about security. Typically, our vendors are small to regional service providers founded by former police or military. As entrepreneurs, they live and thrive by their business succeeding and they have vast experience and leadership across the spectrum of security. Like Protos, they have a vested interest in making sure clients are not only happy but are being heard and understood.

Full data transparency into all aspects of your security program is available to all Protos customers through our unrivaled and innovative client portal.

Protos’ proprietary client portal technology captures real-time, accurate data from your officer program, spanning from timekeeping to incident reporting. We deliver improved transparency, accuracy and efficiency of your security program so you can focus on other priorities.

Invoices are based on confirmed time worked rather than projected time or estimates because an effective security program shouldn't come with surprises.

Through Protos’ technology, all security officers are required to clock in using their smartphone or an onsite caller ID verified phone along with a unique 4-digit pin. Protos can GPS verify that the officer is at your site and our system then sends a link to their smartphone to finish the clock in the process. The officer must be within 400 yards of the client’s location to successfully clock in. These steps ensure that officers only clock in when they arrive. In addition, billing is handled in real-time and offers options to fit the client’s individual needs. For example, Protos can provide one invoice every week including all sites covered or an invoice per location each week.

To uphold our service first culture, Protos has several measures in place to simplify our client’s jobs as well as to check in on satisfaction levels. Each client is assigned a Service Agent as their main point of contact and, as our clients’ programs grow, we add additional support through a Strategic Account Manager (SAM) to function as a client advocate and offer security program guidance. These account team members are also backed by our 24/7 dispatch team meaning assistance is always available.

Protos has always delivered what they say. When we call for emergency service, they constantly communicate with us until the request is filled. Compared to our previous provider, they are great communicators and I have and would highly recommend them to anyone.
