Since 1999 when we began developing the AVERT solution, as ARES Corporation with the support of the US Department of Defense, our mission has been to provide solutions that safeguard your critical assets from the world’s dynamic threat environment. On October 1 2012, ARES Security Corporation was officially established as a stand-alone company to deliver the AVERT solution to our existing government clients while investing in future technologies and growing our commercial security market. In 2013, ARES Security Corporation acquired a majority ownership interest in The Mariner Group, a company that provided advanced situational awareness solutions to ports and other critical infrastructure. This translates into consistent, enhancement-rich versions of our software and new solutions that help tackle our customers’ most difficult security issues. Our vision is to become the leading provider of advanced situational awareness and risk management software worldwide.
With the incorporation of Mariner's CommandBridge platform into ARES Security’s portfolio of risk management solutions, we were able to offer the full spectrum of products and services to prepare, prevent, detect, assess and respond to the myriad of risks that threaten critical infrastructure. In the early years, we focused primarily on nuclear infrastructure and maritime domain awareness, but it soon became clear that our emphasis on providing awareness through context directly translated to a variety of other industries and applications. As a result, we’ve tailored and expanded our AVERT and ASSURE suite of products over the years to apply exceptional situational awareness to a variety of industries.
Today, ARES Security Corporation provides solutions that ensure homeland security and business continuity against an entire range of risks that jeopardize people, revenue and operations. We are continually advancing our portfolio by evaluating best-in-breed technologies and developing new innovative solutions.
