On our Team, we understand and respect the value of each member. We think of one another as Colleagues.

We Are One VTI

Our clients and our industry see the full VTI enterprise as One. We pledge to be trustworthy, respectful, and accountable.


We hire Colleagues with the capacity to make decisions on behalf of our Clients and our Business.


“Collectively, our Colleagues set and guide our vision – creating an environment where a culture of trust, mutual respect, and accountability can flourish. Our leadership team is entrusted with building upon our foundation and serving our Colleagues, our Clients, and the communities we live and work.”

VTI Security was formed in 1980 in response to client needs for a quality integration partner in the Minneapolis/St. Paul market. Privately owned, we have focused on strategic growth built upon Trusted Business Partnerships, investment in our Colleagues, and remaining at the forefront of applications. Our development is a direct result of our ability to support and deliver on customer performance expectation. Expansion to CO, NE, TX, WY, and WI has been in collaboration with key clients – mutually building our businesses in the markets we serve and live.

Today, our Company is consistently recognized by our global industry as one of the Top Integrators. Our focus remains squarely on what got us here with additional emphasis on future-proofing solutions, leading the migration of technologies, and empowering our Clients with the information necessary to be in front of the curve when operating in their stakeholder environments.
We believe this kind of value is at the foundation of our responsibility.


Philanthropy is more than just a charitable donation. In collaboration with our Colleagues and the organizations they champion, we work to create a personal, measurable difference in the communities where we live and work.
