Because your security program deserves flexibility

The distribution and logistics industry has become a significant target for theft, workplace violence, property damage or vandalism and a host of other crimes.

We also provide a range of guarding services through our network of high-quality vendors across the nation. Security programs can be customized specifically to your locations and needs. You’ll have the ability to scale your security program to distribution centers and site needs. Whether your program is long- or short-term, all Protos clients receive access to our client portal, a dedicated service agent and access to our 24/7 security operations service center.
