Security & FM service providers

Securing your World, 24/7.
Providing safety and protection to your people and clients

With the growing demand of high, proactive standards of security services, within holistic security models, it is critical for Security and FM organisations to have a solution that protects its own staff, but also the vested interests of its clients.

Central to this is the provision of a Security Operations Centre (SOC) acting as a central hub for monitoring, detecting, responding to, and managing security threats and incidents.

Zinc Synapse delivers both a centralised solution for SOC operations, as well as the ability to become a reseller of tailored implementations of Critical Event Management platforms for clients. All of which, help to maintain secure environments and contribute to the overall success and reputation of the providers and its client-base.

Are you and your clients prepared to manage events that can disrupt business and the welfare of people?

The digitalisation and unification of critical event management is mission critical, driving compliance and efficiency in the prevention, detection, response and recovery of an incident.


We protect complex property environments.

The World's Largest Security Company"I measure Zinc’s value around our sales and our retention. There was some market research done a couple of weeks ago;... It’s what we’ve commissioned internally so we went to market to 50 security specialists in London to ask, basically what’s most important to them. They weren’t clients of mine, no pre- judged...three things came out of the London markets of what’s important to the end user, the end user being my clients. That was customer service, sustainability and command & control and intelligence. So one third of the most important things coming out of the end client is what Zinc is providing, so to me it’s fundamental to our service offering."

- Allied Universal

One of the World's largest FM organisations
Working in partnership with ISS and The Corporation of London, Zinc has implemented a tailored critical event management platform across this prestigious estate, including iconic locations such as Mansion House, the Guildhall, Barbican, Leadenhall Market, as well as many other key sites around London. The platform has been structured to accommodate the operating procedures of all assets taking into account their unique differences, providing a consistent framework for all teams to work within, including incident reporting, escalation, mass communication, assurance activities and security patrolling.

- Head of Security

“The implementation of reliable technology enablers, such as Synapse, allows us to access data in real-time and in detail. This means we can make fast decisions but also better-informed decisions. It is no longer the case that we are reliant upon the memory of individual officers or the quality of handwritten reports, but rather consistent, comparable data sets analysed over significant periods of time. This is essential in our operating environment and enables us to provide better value and service to our customers.”

Unified data is your key to
strategic success

A unified data source provides a 'single pane of glass' and enables the prioritisation of all safety and security events. This ensures proactive risk management and mitigation, reducing the likelihood of emergencies and their potential impact. Neglecting safety and security data provides increased vulnerabilities, and, in worst cases, catastrophic consequences.
