Our range of security services can be tailored to ensure the most appropriate solution for you


Discreet and highly effective Protective Surveillance

We understand that an overt Close Protection or Security presence may not always be appropriate in a corporate or personal setting. In such instances, Protective Surveillance, a specialist covert process, can be used. At Mobius International, we have extensive experience in protecting individuals, buildings, areas, or assets through discreet security methods. You can be sure that our personnel will not draw attention or make themselves known during the protection operation.

  • A specialist covert process to protect an individual, building, area or asset
  • Our skilled team members will not make themselves known during the operation except when required
  • Our teams can liaise with your existing office building security team
  • The service can include real-time reporting for your peace of mind and be used in conjunction with standard Close Protection
  • Our people have experience in delivering Protective Surveillance to business leaders across a broad spectrum of industries and sectors

Covert security tailored to corporate life

While a noticeable security presence may present an added barrier to colleagues or associates, knowing you have protective personnel ready should you need it can provide important peace of mind for those at the very top of the corporate ladder. Whether you are seeking day to day security yet do not want an overtly visible Close Protection operative by your side or want undercover security for a specific event or meeting, our operatives can give you the invisible protection you require.

Our people have delivered Protective Surveillance to Chief Executive Officers, Chief Financial Officers, Chief Operating Officers, Chief Information Officers, Chairmen and Board members. This service is particularly suited to the following:

  • Sensitive business meetings where the presence of security might be detrimental to the image of a business
  • Individuals that require Protection but wish it to be unobtrusive
  • Individuals that do not want Protection but a concerned party does on their behalf
  • Additional cover to an existing protection team
  • Family members reluctant to accept a security presence

If required, we can provide real-time reporting of movements and the situation of the Principal under our Protection as per standard surveillance operations.
