Thales, a trusted partner
To develop a solution that fully meets military requirements, Thales drew on its in-depth understanding of defence organisations, based on decades of experience. But performance isn’t the system's only competitive advantage.
Thales teams provide customers with personalised support at all stages of their projects, from initial design to routine management of security operations after the system is delivered and installed. A support and maintenance service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
“Our defence expertise and our deep understanding of the issues the military faces make us a trusted partner for our customers,” says Laurent Letellier, product manager for Thales.
This claim is borne out by the commercial success of a solution that is currently protecting 190 military sites around the world, including the French Ministry of Defence’s Balard headquarters in Paris. Providing security for the ‘French Pentagon’, which brings together all staff headquarters departments at a single site, is an extraordinary undertaking. The surveillance system installed by Thales to meet this challenge makes it possible to:
- Centralise a vast array of different types of supervision and control systems (visitor access, videosurveillance, intrusion detection, etc.)
- Meet the site's maximum security requirements up to Top Secret level.
Thales will be ensuring the security of people and data at the Balard facility for the next 30 years.
The Security Digital Platform ensures that the armed forces have the highest level of protection at their bases. Importantly, it frees them from a whole set of routine tasks, enabling them to focus on their main duties. As such, it plays a crucial role in ensuring their own security and guaranteeing the safety of the populations they protect.
