Afribiz Invest partners with RSS Security Services
June 2018, News, Security Services & Risk Management, Retail (Industry)

South African investment company Afribiz Invest has announced a joint venture partnership with RSS Security Services. The partnership will see the launch of a new specialist security company, RSS Commercial, which will service private and public-sector organisations.

RSS Security Services has a 16-year track record in the South African security sector and has excelled in combining its technological and operational expertise to offer a service to residential clients. The formation of RSS Commercial will allow the company, in partnership with Afribiz Invest, to establish a presence in the key commercial and government spaces.

“It’s an exciting partnership with significant growth potential,” says Cecil Mashawana, director of Afribiz Security, a division of Afribiz Invest. “Together, Afribiz and RSS have established a highly experienced executive team able to exploit opportunities across the South African economy. We see a significant gap in the commercial market and we’re confident we can make a positive impact on our clients’ operations, including on their ability to maximise the value of their security investments.”

RSS Security Services’ sustained success in the residential security segment saw increasing market demand for the company to deliver its services to commercial and government organisations. As an investor on the lookout for high quality assets, Afribiz Invest saw a natural fit – capable of securing national market share – between the two entities.

Central to RSS Commercial’s push into private and public sectors will be its ability to introduce new tools that allow organisations to improve their security performance while decreasing annual costs.

“It’s the combination of manpower and technology that is really important,” says Brett Fisher, CEO of RSS Security Services. “The RSS Commercial partnership is unique in its ability to offer new, productive ways of approaching security. The company will educate organisations on new technology developments and will help them to grow a security approach that allows their business to concentrate on its key functions in a secure, controlled environment featuring leading technology, supported by high level intellectual capital.”

RSS Commercial will offer a wide range of services to South African organisations, including guarding, access control systems, IP camera solutions, forensic investigations and armed response teams. Crucially, the company’s tactical services are supported by a strategic capacity that includes off-site control room monitoring and state of the art analytics.

“Security in the South African context is as much about sharp thinking and effective data use as it is feet on the ground,” concludes Afribiz Invest’s Mashawana. “Yes, you need strong physical presence and ability, but you also need the capacity to access and analyse the data. If you get both aspects right, you can dramatically improve performance and cost efficiency. RSS Commercial will allow clients to approach this challenge positively, while also keeping up with all the new opportunities constantly evolving technologies offer.”
