MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Knightscope, developer of advanced physical security technologies focused on significantly enhancing US security operations, and Securitas AB (SECU-B.ST), the world’s second largest private security company, announced today that the parties are extending their channel partner agreement through February 2020. The agreement gives Securitas Security Services USA, Inc., a subsidiary of Securitas, rights to offer Knightscope’s technologies to its significant existing customer base, while Knightscope continues to develop new technologies and provide operational support.
Knightscope and Securitas have been working together over the past year and have successfully deployed Knightscope’s security robots at several key Securitas accounts in California.
“The move toward digitalization is very fast, but I am convinced we’re right on time,” says Alf Göransson, President and CEO, Securitas. “The security company of tomorrow will, to a much larger degree, consist of higher use of technology and knowledge content, and there are big opportunities going on in many sectors of society.”
“Knightscope is re-defining physical security with our technologies,” says William Santana Li, chairman and CEO, Knightscope, Inc. “Imagine delivering capabilities to the fingertips of security guards that may appear almost ‘superhuman’, providing greater situational awareness and a tremendous advantage over what could be accomplished without Knightscope’s technology. Our software+hardware+humans approach is working and we look forward to continuing to collaborate with Securitas.”
