Defense Systems was created in response to the growing security
concerns expressed by the clients of DataWorld. In reaction
to acts of domestic and international terrorism, businesses
are searching for better ways to protect their buildings,
and more importantly, to better protect the people who work
in or visit these locations. DWS will offer one such solution
-- high quality, state of the art security glass and the associated
security system that will have numerous potential applications.
Glass currently used in many buildings may potentially cause
significant injury if shattered. The DWS solution can minimize
this problem and provide greater security to the building's
occupants. The in-house architect and engineering team at
DWS, who have over 80 years of combined experience in the
security and defense field, will be able to assess and customize
a turnkey security solution for any type or size of business.
DWS Defense Systems and its highly skilled team will design,
develop, install and market specialty products and equipment
for the security needs of domestic and international businesses.
The company is already in negotiations with a number of Fortune
1000 companies to provide security solutions that will be
tailor made to suit each company's particular needs.
