The Protection Agency Trusted to Safeguard Florida's Most Risk Exposed Executives & Dignitaries

ARDENT's Executive Protection team has 40+ years of experience designing and providing high-quality security solutions to clients across multiple industries.

In today's environment it's crucial that organizations have a thoroughly designed safety & security plan to keep their staff safe, and a team of security professionals who can tactfully carry it out.

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.

ARDENT Protection

Every ARDENT armed agent is skilled in defensive firearms skills. They understand if forced to deploy weapons, that their task is to quickly and safely evacuate their principal.

 Every ARDENT Agent is a contingency planner, they account for the unaccountable to ensure safety and productivity. 

Our agents are primarily problem solvers, they bring the calming presence needed during tense situations. They have experience using verbal and non-verbal persuasion techniques as often as necessary to ensure our client’s needs are met, and have been expertly trained to assess and mitigate any range of risks or threats before they occur.

Our Officers also create value for their clients in tangible and intangible ways. Tangibly they reduce the cost of loss, damage or sabotage to their clients property by professionally carrying out the tasks above. 

The foundation of any Safety & Security program is to identify the general risks, targeted risks & common hazards. After identifying the list of possible risks and hazards our team then prioritizes each one in preparation for step two.

Designing a comprehensive Safety & Security plan involves using the identified risks to determine key goals and objectives for mitigating and responding to each. 

     Further, it involves painting a clear and realistic picture of each risk-based scenario, determining the time and resources needed to address them, identifying decision points, and selecting viable options for an effective response.

Our Officers understand the appropriate use of emergency services like 911 and Fire Rescue and are trained in responsible detention techniques of violent intruders. 

Contingency plans are necessary for unlikely or catastrophic events. It’s near impossible to develop a detailed plan for each and every possible, however unlikely event. Contingency planning helps fill those gaps to allow for clarity even in chaos.

At this stage, we ensure the plan is adequate in its ability to meet your organization’s key objectives and is a feasible approach to responding to your specific and non-specific concerns. 


It is important that anyone who has a role within any part of the plan knows that role thoroughly. We help ensure your security plan is adequate in its ability to meet your organization’s key objectives and is a feasible approach to responding to your specific and non-specific concerns. We’re dedicated to building you a plan that is cost-effective and practical, but most importantly, complete.
