SOS Security LLC has recently acquired AS Solution, a global executive protection firm for Fortune 500 corporations and other distinguished clients.
Founded in 2003, AS Solution provides customized executive protection, intelligence analysis, event and residential security, secure travel support and technological solutions to enhance individual and corporate security, productivity, and business continuity. In 2016, AS Solution, which is based in Bellevue, W,A and has more than 600 employees, performed approximately 3,000 protective details in 86 countries.
“We are thrilled to join the SOS Security family,” said Christian West, founder and chief executive officer of AS Solution. “We will continue to serve our clients with the same approach and dedication as we have for many years, only now as part of a larger global team with extensive operational resources.” West will continue to lead AS Solution and will become executive vice president of SOS Security.
“Our investment in AS Solution is an exciting strategic collaboration that will provide our clients with complimentary, critical security solutions from a single provider,” said Edward B. Silverman, chairman and chief executive officer of SOS Security. “Together, we will provide clients with extensive security solutions – from personal protection and intelligence analysis to fire and safety operations to guarding and special services – both domestically and abroad.”
“I look forward to working closely with Christian and his exceptional team to expand our global special services offerings to our clients,” said Silverman. “With the launch of SOS Security’s global security operations center in Parsippany, combined with the AS Solution operations center in Seattle, we are capable of providing global 24/7 security support.”
