About State Security

Security System Assessment & Installation

State Security has been providing property assessments and alarm, surveillance, and security system installation to Central Ohio customers for over a decade. Their business owners are lifelong friends and they pride themselves on honest, reliable services, fair and competitive pricing, and maintaining relationships long after the installation is complete to ensure your satisfaction and protection. They use non-proprietary equipment when installing camera, alarm, and fire security systems, so you’re never stuck using the same system for life even when it grows outdated.

The State Security Story

“We won’t allow each other to fail,” says Mike, “and the journey to get things accomplished for our customers is what’s most important.”

Mike Neff & Brian Sherman first met at ages 11 & 12 years old, playing youth baseball together at Mound City Little League in Newark, OH. They went from starting out as competitors to playing on middle school all-star teams together to ultimately becoming teammates in high school football, basketball, and baseball at Newark High School. In fact, State Security’s maroon colors are an homage to Newark High School.

Years later, Brian was working for an electronic security company and asked Mike to join him and his team. Thereafter, the owner of the company was ready to sell and Brian and Mike readied themselves to purchase the company as their own-- but it wasn’t meant to be. The company was sold to a larger group instead.

However, Brian and Mike were determined to own their own security company. They met one night in 2008, laid down 5 credit cards on the kitchen table as their only lines of start-up capital, and convinced their wives to trust in them to start their own company: State Security was born.

Being best friends for years laid a strong foundation for the initial challenges of their new start-up business. And while outsiders told them it wasn’t a good time to start a business, and that going into business with friends is a bad idea, Brian and Mike always believed they could make State Security a thriving company for themselves, employees, and clients. In the end, they were right.

To this day Brian and Mike are the sole owners and operators of State Security. They rely on their deep roots, can-do attitude, and teamwork to make State Security a place where they always do what’s right for their customers. This is proven in their commitment to using only non-proprietary equipment, and their strong client base, who rely on State Security to secure their businesses, investments, and organizations.
