Executive Protection & Bodyguard Services

Our Close Protection Teams have extensive worldwide experience, which includes diplomatic protection as well as Executive Protection and includes a robust network of Agents around the world.

ARDENT’s Executive Protection services are executed in three layers of security, each geared at proactively protecting persons exposed to risk.

Executive Protection & Protective Intelligence

Protective Intelligence is the non-physical, outermost layer of our EP framework, it employs Intelligence Analysts and systems to identify and assess geographic, general, and targeted risk. The middle layer is the Protective Advance layer, It does a lot of the logistical heavy lifting necessary for any protection detail’s success. The Close Protection layer is where skilled protectors, overtly or covertly, safeguard their protectees from physical threats, harm, and embarrassment.

Bodyguarding & Close Protection

Armed with data collected from intelligence analysis and plans designed during the advance planning phase, Close Protection Agents use their knowledge of non-verbal cues & pre-attack indicators, advanced first aid, verbal persuasion, defensive tactics, and protective firearms skills to keep our clients safe, productive, and unhindered throughout each day.

The key values of an ARDENT Protection agent are maturity, integrity, emotional intelligence, decisiveness and professionalism.

Corporate Security is one of the essential elements to keeping an organization’s executives and employees not only safe but also productive in the workplace. Operating a corporate office, unfortunately, brings many common unavoidable risks and vulnerabilities.

     Our corporate security & protection strategies are custom-designed to address our clients needs at every level.

  • Workplace violence
  • Active shooters
  • Domestic violence issues brought from home
  • Opportunistic criminal acts i.e. theft, burglary, or vandalism
  • Hostile surveillance
  • Competitive surveillance

     It’s simply impossible to eliminate 100% of risk, for that reason it becomes much more crucial that organizations have A-Z policies and procedures for staff to follow, a thoroughly designed safety & security plan to keep their staff safe, and a team of security professionals who can tactfully carry it out.

Protective Intelligence is used to determine risks, threats, and vulnerabilities to our principle before they touch ground. Data collected by Protective Intelligence agents is securely analyzed, processed for credibility, and delivered to the executive protection team leadership with mitigation recommendations for consideration.

Close Protection is the critically important, physical element of the Executive Protection program. It is the safeguard against physical attacks, risks of embarrassment, or diminished public perception for clients. Close protection is always necessary as it is the only layer of security that can address the opportunistic attacker. Bodyguarding falls directly into that role.

Executive Protection, when performed properly goes well beyond its obvious protective functions. A respectable Executive Protection Agency understands their role in ensuring client confidentiality, ease of movement, time management, desired public perception, and overall productivity.

Executive Protection services can be grand in scope and are a useful solution across many demographics. EP agencies provide solutions for people exposed to risk, these are most often high net worth individuals (HNWIs), corporate executives, celebrities, dignitaries, political figures, or any person or organization under direct threat of disruptions, embarrassment, or physical harm.
