Trusted to Safeguard Florida's Most At Risk People, Properties & Places

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

Our guarantee is supported by our unwavering client focus, the ARDENT culture of screening, interviewing, continuously training our staff, leadership development, and exceptional customer service.

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.
