Perimeter security is no longer solely a concern for military facilities, government offices, and other hard target sites. Since 9/11, advancements in access control technology and changes in the cost of security solutions have pushed perimeter security to grow in both scope and objective. Like never before, there is an increased focus on perimeter security for construction projects at industrial and commercial sites, as well as ports and harbors. With an increased risk of attack on infrastructure, traditional access control systems and physical barriers like turnstiles and guard booths play an ever-growing role in perimeter security solutions. Analytics such as those found in access control technologies have allowed an increase in security coupled with reporting and time-keeping functionalities. This evolution of security and security concerns has led to the creation of portable perimeter security solutions like the patented Modular Access Control (MAC) Portal.

Combining access control technology, turnstiles, and guard booths into one portable unit, the patented MAC Portal has made the installation of physical barriers turn-key and easy to install. With the ability to integrate the Patented MAC Portal into existing security systems or to act as a stand-alone unit, virtually any access controlsoftware and/or hardware may be integrated into these portable perimeter security solutions. With the increased sophistication of access control technology available to security customers and its combined integration into the Patented MAC Portal, MSSI has been able to change the world of perimeter security on construction projects at power plants, refineries, chemical plants, major ports and harbors, and commercial construction projects such as those found at the Freedom Tower in New York City and the McGill University Health Centre in Montreal, Canada.
