About ARES Security Corporation
Since 1999 when we began developing the AVERT risk assessment solution as ARES Corporation with the support of the US Department of Defense, our mission has been to provide solutions that safeguard our clients’ 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 invest in future technologies and continue delivering the AVERT solutions to our growing government and commercial clients. We have since grown our AVERT family of products, which are currently being utilized in 67% of the North American nuclear reactors and a third of the top-tier seaports, to provide assessments for physical security, responses and natural disasters as well as incorporate tools for situational awareness, decision-making, tabletop and virtual reality training. In 2013, ARES Security acquired a majority ownership interest in The Mariner Group, a company that provided advanced situational awareness solutions to the critical infrastructure sector, and fully acquired the company in 2016.
Mariner, founded in 2001, had become a thought leader in applying situational awareness principles to unique challenges using a context-based approach. Their legacy CommandBridge platform integrated systems and sensors to create a common operating picture that replaced information clutter with intuitive visualizations allowing decision makers to generate quick, informed decisions. The incorporation of CommandBridge into our portfolio of risk management solutions, allowed us 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 the nuclear and maritime industries, but it became clear that our emphasis on providing data-driven assessments, in-depth training, and awareness through context directly translated to a variety of other industries and applications.
As a result, we have expanded and enhanced our suite of products over the years to apply our experience to a variety of industries. Within the past decade we have built a completely new product based off our experience with CommandBridge, called AVERT C2, which transformed the common operating picture software into a full command and control platform that is applicable to numerous industries. We have added countless product enhancements to our AVERT Physical Security software which is helping clients around the World improve their security’s effectiveness while reducing capital expenditures. We have also built immersive training solutions, Virtual Tabletop & VR Training, that revolutionize traditional training approaches by using quantitative data from our propriety assessment software, saving customers both time and money on security and response training.
Today, ARES Security is proud to provide 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 our customers’ needs along with best-in-breed technologies to develop new innovative solutions. This translates into consistent, enhancement-rich versions of our software and new solutions that help tackle our customers’ most difficult challenges. Our vision is to become the leading provider of advanced situational awareness and risk management software worldwide.
