Silicon Valley Security Guarding Startup (Bannerman) Examined

Author: Brian Karas, Published on Aug 24, 2017

Innovation in security guard services has been limited (or comical, i.e., robots to date).

One Silicon Valley startup, Bannerman has been targeting the security guard space. When they first emerged in 2014, TechCrunch called them 'bouncers on demand' and 'uber for security'

Now Bannerman is expanding to offer the 'Salesforce of guard services', a software platform for managing and monitoring all aspects of guard deployments.

Bannerman shared details of their guard business and software platform with IPVM, in this report we analyze their potential to disrupt the guard industry and challenges faced.
