Verizon Business chosen to help secure U.S. Navy facilities

Verizon Business announced Monday that it has been chosen by the U.S. Navy to help secure several facilities in the Washington, D.C., area.

According to a statement, the company will help design and install physical security systems at Navy bases located in Dahlgren, Va., and Indian Head, Md. Verizon security experts will also help the Navy manage card readers, security credentials, cameras and intrusion detection systems.

"Physical security goes hand-in-hand with network security," said Susan Zeleniak, group president, Verizon Federal. "Government agencies can be vulnerable if they overlook simple physical security considerations, such as requiring access cards to enter a building. The Navy, by getting a handle on its physical security with the simplified maintenance and management provided by Verizon, is ahead of the game in helping to prevent possible security vulnerabilities that can lead to data breaches."
