Description Of Site
Security By Design's work with Adobe began in 2004 with a request to create global security standards. Adobe's goal was to achieve uniformity
in its security systems worldwide. Security By Design proposed an approach to include the standardization of products and systems not only in the
US, but also in Europe, the Middle East and Asia. Such a standardization is ambitious since not all systems are available in all countries. Further,
power requirements and life-safety codes differ from region to region.
Despite those challenges, SBD succeeded in creating standards for specifications and details so that Adobe can now issue its own RFP packages.
This resulted in huge cost savings for Adobe because the equipment design work needs to be done only once.
Now, Adobe facilities and security staff around the world can plan and design their own security equipment configurations simply by consulting the
SBD also provided consulting assistance to Adobe for its facilities in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. This project entailed security video systems and
access control (including elevators) design for seven floors in the Preston Square building.
SBD provided full consulting services for the design of a new campus in Utah. The first phase is now complete and a second phase is due to start construction soon. We also provided the same services for a new, free-standing data center. SBD provided design and construction support. The work included biometrics, a new security operations center and network integration.
