Sarasota, FL, October 21, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Rapid Security Solutions, the leader in end-to-end security and asset protection solutions, today announced a new addition to its line of Security solutions, Protect Your Museum. Protect Your Museum is the first integrated solution of its kind designed to secure and protect art specific to museums. Its revolutionary five-part security solution ensures the utmost protection for museums from their smallest to most valuable pieces.
Art theft is a blossoming industry that is recorded by the FBI Art Theft Program to be an estimated $6 billion business. Such an amount would put art theft among the top three highest grossing illicit trade industries, alongside drug and arms trafficking.
It’s no doubt that stolen art is serious business. Internationally, museums suffer from the loss of nearly 50,000 classical and irreplaceable pieces of artwork yearly.
“When most people think of a Museum heist, a famous piece of artwork from Picasso or Matisse comes to mind that was stolen in Europe somewhere,” said Steven Paley, President of RSS. “In reality, a large number of small-to-medium size museums in America have security related issues. This is due to malfunctioning or outdated security systems, poorly trained guards, or no system in place at all.”
Using Protect Your Museum’s innovative security technologies and over 100 years of field experience creates an “integrated solution” that protects the classical and modern arts found in museums nationwide. Protect Your Museum technology includes two-way audio detection systems, web management control, interactive digital video surveillance, intelligent access control, and fire detection solutions, to ensure the most secure museum premise possible.
"With Protect Your Museum, we provide state-of-the-art security solutions for museums of all sizes. Our 'solutions-approach' to security and service assures the highest and most sophisticated level of protection of your people and property,” adds Paley.
