Acquisition Delivers End-to-End Security Solutions Globally

Washington, DC, September 13, 2016 – The Mariner Group has recently been fully acquired by ARES Security Corporation (ASC), who has held a majority ownership in The Mariner Group since 2013. As a result of the purchase, the Mariner team will gradually be transitioning into ARES Security. This acquisition builds on Mariner’s expansion while strengthening ASC’s position to serve the global security market by providing comprehensive end-to-end physical and logical security solutions.

ARES Security will incorporate Mariner’s CommandBridge™ platform into their suite of risk management and security optimization solutions to provide sensor integration and real time command and control capabilities. Throughout the transition ARES Security will continue to deliver the exceptional situational awareness and response management solutions that are the hallmark of The Mariner Group.

Along with the transition, Mariner has also had a change in leadership. Steve Dryden has officially left the Mariner team to start a new venture and Ben Eazzetta, President of ASC, will be taking his place as the Mariner CEO.

“The acquisition will realize ARES Security’s vision to become the leading provider of advanced situational awareness and risk management solutions worldwide. CommandBridge, which currently is deployed in 40% of the top ports in the US, not only opens new infrastructure security markets for ARES Security, but also is key to our vision of deploying real time security optimization solutions,” said Ben Eazzetta, President of ASC. “Most importantly, we believe this acquisition benefits the customers of both businesses because it expands the depth and breadth of our security offerings, providing our clients with solutions to plan, prevent, detect, assess and respond to all types of incidents.”
