    The times they are a-changin’: legal cannabis in California presents brand-new security challenges

    Medical cannabis manufacturers have so far endured the scrutiny of State regulators while barely keeping their ware safe from users and abusers. But their trials of guarding the substance are becoming acuter as the complete legalization date of January 1, 2018 is looming: anybody will be able to buy the ‘stuff’ legitimately, inviting a crop of new growers to the golden state. But no worries, Virtual Guard is up to the task.

    The Company has over 15 years experience in designing, installing and video monitoring security systems customized for perimeter security of high-value inventory. Virtual Guard developed and perfected proprietary software that activates upon detection of a perimeter intrusion, a technology that relies on the same video surveillance equipment currently used by the Department of Defense and the Department of Homeland Security.

    From Virtual Guard to Hollywood Stars: Use It or Lose!

    What’s common to such diverse types of celebrities as Kendall Jenner, Derek Fisher, Niki Minaj, and Cesar Millan? Not much, except that their homes have been burglarized this year. And just a few summers ago, US magazine reported that Paris Hilton’s Malibu home was robbed for the seventh time. The heiress is quoted lamenting, “I have bad luck…” But it’s not bad luck Ms. Hilton; it’s a bad security company.

    As this rash of celebrity burglaries and break-ins sweeps both coasts, police and city officials are at a loss in explaining the not-so-abnormal activity. Media outlets as diverse as TMZ and Page Six cover 2017’s unfortunate events, bringing a myriad of explanations to the forefront.

    “Virtual Guard signs on to the effort to halt this drift by introducing a software-centric service, tailor-made to combat these crimes before they actually occur,” announces the company’s President, Owen Dvir. “We have developed a crime prevention technology suited to protecting Hollywood stars and other VIPs from crime and paparazzi. Enough is enough! Our system is designed for one purpose: peace of mind for our clients.”

    Preventing Crime Before It Happens: Virtual Guard Recruits a Police Commander

    Retired police Lt Colonel Avishay Bar-Tal is a strategic addition to senior management designed to greatly enhance the company’s monitoring capability, drawn from his distinguished service of over two decades in various investigative and intelligence aspects of police work.

    Following a military tenure as a combat officer in the Israeli Defense Force, Mr. Bar-Tal embarked on a 25-year career in the Israeli National Police in both investigation and intelligence efforts, culminating in a five-year stint as Israeli Police liaison to the US and Mexico. His joining Virtual Guard represents Mr. Bar-Tal’s first civilian position following his extensive police service.

    “I spent a career investigating crime, only to join Virtual Guard, where our key objective is to prevent crime” chuckles Avishay Bar-Tal. “The challenges we have faced in both areas, however, are quite similar: management of enormous amount of data, guiding personnel in making quick decisions, and leading a constant improvement of software development. We are currently undertaking an assimilation of police standards and procedures as they relate to security operations and our control center”
