Close Protection

Sometimes you may not wish a Close Protection/ Bodyguard/ Security presence to be evident for all sorts of personal or practical reasons. 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 needed
  • The service can include real-time reporting for your peace of mind
  • Can be used in conjunction with standard Close Protection

Covert security for all your needs

We understand that a prominent security presence may not feel appropriate or comfortable in every setting. Some individual clients and their families would prefer to go about daily life without Close Protection operatives in the direct vicinity. Covert security can offer many advantages on such occasions, enabling clients a greater sense of freedom without compromising safety.

Indeed, in certain circumstances, the person under protection need not even be aware their movements and situation are being monitored.

Our Protective Surveillance service is suitable for the following:

  • 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 the movements and the situation of the individual under our protection as per standard surveillance operations.

Experts in Protective Surveillance

We are recognised as global leaders in Protective Services, employing only the best of the best. For these covert services, we regularly deploy joint teams of former:

  • UK Special Forces of the Special Air Service (22 SAS)
