The compelling success story of Steve Jobs is familiar to all. When asked about his exemplary journey in the transformation of the technology sector, he often said, “It’s not a faith in technology; it’s a faith in people,” that rendered him this success. One can’t help but draw a resemblance between this statement and the core value underpinning the success of Ohio-based access control solution provider, Paladin Protective Systems. In a day and age where technology is constantly outdoing itself, Paladin rightly positions themselves not as a company that only provides leading-edge solutions in the access control domain, but as the one that cares about people.
Teamwork and customer loyalty are the two pillars on which Paladin has been built on for the past three decades. What started as a small-scale business by Cal Corsi—a veteran in the security and access control market—to help organizations, companies, and schools improve their access control systems, has evolved today to become one of the industry leaders in life safety, CCTV, access control, intrusion, fire alarms, inspection services and professional audio-video systems.
Taking this legacy forward is Cal Corsi’s son, Kevin Corsi, the current president of Paladin Protective Systems. In his judgment, due to increasing competition in the access control sector, technologies like alarm systems, biometric scanners, and RFID-enabled turnstiles are now a common sight in many organizations. However, Paladin is effectively breaking through the clutter with their passion and competence in offering services for designing, planning, procuring, and installing exceptional access control systems.
At the core of these competencies is Paladin’s praiseworthy 65-member team of employees. “Our clients have complete faith in our talented, certified professionals,” says Kevin. Boasting the proficiency of the latest security and access control technologies, Paladin’s employees are ever ready to take on a new challenge, meet the needs of today’s latest technological requirements, and offer custom integrated access control solutions for its clients. “Despite having a small team, we have successfully deployed access control solutions to some of the largest companies in the U.S.,” says Kevin.
When it comes to handling access control projects, large and high-security installments are Paladin’s forte, and the company has secured several projects for water treatment and sewage plants, among many others. Before undertaking any project, Paladin’s well-trained staff performs an extensive evaluation of the protection requirements and the client’s existing security posture, along with the assessment on budget constraints. Based on this evaluation, Paladin develops credential-based access control systems which can include: encrypted badges, biometrics, and facial recognition. These systems can be further integrated with other security systems to function as a company’s centralized security management suite. Paladin’s security solutions can also be combined with other non-security systems to streamline a company’s business workflow.

Paladin’s emphasis on delivering services that bolster a client’s pursuit of achieving organizational goals is one of the major reasons behind their countless success stories. A case in point is an industry-leading lawn equipment manufacturing company. The company was in a desperate search for an access control system that would allow them to operate the compound gates through advanced remote-controls. Gauging the requirement, Paladin deployed S2 Security products in one of their facilities, enabling the client to control the access from anywhere in the world with just a connected wireless device. Owing to the success of this implementation, the client extended their partnership with Paladin to deploy the same access control system throughout all of their facilities in the U.S.
Paladin envisions continuing its excellent work in the access control market where there is a dire need of customer-centric solutions. Paladin’s roadmap entails expanding its business in the Columbus Ohio market, with a move deeper into the Cincinnati and Dayton areas in the future.
