the only security optimization software to receive a DHS SAFETY Act Certification

Whether you manage the security of a small facility with a limited security profile or a large enterprise that must address all types of hazards, AVERT Physical Security can help protect your critical assets from threats that suspend operations, increase costs and compromise the well-being of personnel. AVERT Physical Security has multiple modules that can model a variety of risks including intentional acts, natural disasters, and other disruptive events to address the needs of your unique operations. Designed to enable informed decision making based on quantitative risk assessments, AVERT Physical Security creates 3D models of your current facility to analyze and quantify the performance of your security configuration. The software then applies “what if” scenarios to assess different security configurations so you can prioritize future investments and operational procedures. 

AVERT Physical Security’s intuitive user interface quickly creates realistic 3D models of your facility that include interior and exterior features or structures, access points and entrances, natural features, and the placement of both active and passive barriers and detection tools. Once your site is modeled, the solution uses Monte Carlo simulations in order to attempt to defeat the security systems by determining the pathways of adversaries or natural hazards. These simulations provide you with a complete understanding of any possible vulnerabilities at your facility. The parameters can easily be changed within the model to address a wide range of security system configurations, threats and targets. Once the vulnerabilities and pathways have been identified and analyzed, you can change and test new modeled defenses and procedures to optimize your facility’s posture and thoroughly understand your return on investment. This quantitative approach provides a cost effective means to continually assess risks and optimize your security’s effectiveness against your budget.

Adding Value to Your Organization

Answer “Why?”

AVERT Physical Security provides security and response officers with a data-driven optimization tool that can answer the difficult question of “Why?” a project or modification is required. The government-validated reports provided from the assessments allow officers to determine the effectiveness of their overall security or response plans and show in detail how a change will increase effectiveness and at what cost.

Cost Savings & avoidance

AVERT assessments allows clients to gauge the effectiveness of their overall security or response plans as well as the individual systems, staff & procedures. Clients can constantly validate the ROI of their entire security and response operations or run as needed cost-benefit analyses for new acquisitions or projects to improve effectiveness while reducing cost.

Plan for All threats

AVERT Physical Security enables clients to model existing, new or temporary threats quickly to properly manage and respond to new scenarios. Clients using AVERT Physical Security can assess their current security operations, improve their plans and train on those new plans for how to address any type of security threat, such as Active Shooters, Natural Disasters, IED’s and Drones, at any type of facility. 

AVERT Risk Assessment Products

AVERT Physical Security assessments can be purchased through multiple different licensing options which provides flexible pricing to our customers. Pricing can vary greatly depending on the size and complexity of the facility and assessment. Using a Project License customers can gain all the benefits of an advanced assessment without having to perform the work themselves. Whereas, Site or Enterprise Licenses allow our customers to contribute to the assessment and own the model afterwards in order to perform additional assessments on their own whenever needed.

AVERT Physical Security

AVERT Physical Security provides a user interface that allows you to easily configure multiple distinct simulations capable of running in serial. The results of each simulation are then stored in a customer provided MS SQL Server Database for quick and simple reporting. AVERT Physical Security is capable of simulating countless types of threats from terrorist attacks and lone shooters to cyber attacks and drone intrusions. With the capacity to run countless simulations, AVERT Physical Security is perfect for facilities who need to prepare for any possible threats or are looking to evaluate future purchases.

AVERT all hazards

AVERT All Hazards adds the capability to simulate the effects of natural disasters (Wind, Flood, Seismic, and Fire) at your facility. With the All Hazards Framework customers are able to add any of the Advanced Behavior or All Hazards Modules that can be purchased separately to accommodate more advanced security and response designs or other hazards. Adding the All Hazards Framework to your simulations allows you to run parallel simulations capable of calculating critical response times and pathways throughout your facility or region.

The AVERT Difference

There are many different modeling and simulations tools out there, but only the AVERT products allow you to generate completely different simulations from a single file. Previously, modeling and simulation programs relied heavily on analysts to create entirely separate models to compare one variable to another. These analysts had to gather their data from separate studies, which not only could lead to human error but is also a time-consuming and expensive process.

With the creation of the Simulation Controller, you now have a way to utilize a single AVERT model to create as many different simulations from one model as desired. As each individual simulation is executed, real-time results for Percentage of Effectiveness P(e) are displayed while the simulations are running. Once all the simulations, are completed the results are automatically stored into a Microsoft SQL database, where you can choose to display the results in customizable HTML, PDF or XLS reports. This process removes the potential for human error and allows you to generate any number of customized reports that can accurately display aggregate results from thousands of simulations with complete accuracy.
