The PACSmen are an elite group of technologists in the Northland Controls Professional Services team devoted to optimizing end-user security systems. Every month we host an hour dedicated to a specific access control system. Participants are encouraged to bring their greatest challenge, questions, and curiosity to the PACSmen. Whether it’s conducting audits, sniffing out 40,000 orphan records slowing down a system, hardening security systems to keep data in and bad guys out, or unlocking the full potential of a security system to provide impactful data like space utilization so businesses can make smart decisions—these are the technologists who have embrace the challenge. If you have questions or issues with deployment, migration, upgrade and hardening, remote health checks, customized reporting, analytics or integration, join us for a lively discussion on how to optimize your system.

Milpitas, CA—Northland Controls, a global security systems integrator and managed services provider to the world’s top high-tech and financial institutions, opened a new headquarters space today. In the past decade the company has grown from $1 million in revenue to almost $70 million with locations all around the world.
“Our new Milpitas headquarters is the direct result of the rapid growth we’ve been experiencing and part of our deep roots in the tech sector,” says CEO Pierre Trapanese. “With the expansion to Milpitas, our first-of-its-kind outsourced global security operations center can expand in our existing Fremont location to accommodate growing client demand.”
Although the company is keeping its existing Fremont, Calif. location, which houses its global security operations center and managed services programs, CEO Pierre Trapanese said that there was a need for additional space to meet the demand.
“Finding another office in Silicon Valley was part of the company’s long-term strategy,” Trapanese told Security Systems News. “So we found an architect that many Silicon Valley companies have used to create a high-tech and more open feel that allows for increased interaction and collaboration among employees.”
What happens when a company with a poor reputation and low morale aligns around five core values? Spoiler: it becomes an industry leading company and grows from $1.5 million to $60 million in 10 years.
Read how Pierre Trapanese, CEO of Northland Controls led a remarkable turnaround for the company without financial backing or marketing investment.
