Our Work Philosophy

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

“A master in the art of living draws no sharp distinction between his work and his play; his labor and his leisure; his mind and his body; his education and his recreation. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence through whatever he is doing, and leaves others to determine whether he is working or playing. To himself, he always appears to be doing both.”
-Francois Auguste Rene Chateaubriand (1800’s French Writer & Diplomat)

We here at Protectus Security love this quote and it influences how we work. For us work is not just a job: it is an opportunity for us to be excellent, an opportunity for us to help our clients improve their quality of life, an opportunity to make Dallas-Fort Worth a safer place, an opportunity to make new friends and improve our lives. This is why its so important for us to provide our clients with the best technology and customer service, while operating with integrity in all we do. Hopefully this is apparent in your interactions with us.  If you have experienced this to be true or if there are areas where you think we can improve, we would love to hear from you.
