A new security firm will set up shop in Kenya in two weeks as it seeks to secure a share of the competitive market.
Global Watch says it is betting on the use of latest technology in communications and surveillance coupled with well-trained emergency medical response and security team to ensure safety of its clients.
Dr Hoorla Chishti, the firm’s managing director, said the firm will use the Business Processing Outsourcing model, with a call centre to enable surveillance of business premises and homes through CCTV cameras.
“We are offering the third eye that serves to provide critical and intelligent solutions,” said Dr Chishti.
