Formed in 1972 by Ted Mallon, Safeguard has expanded to become the leading security provider in the country. It consists of 4 main companies- Safeguard Security, Safeguard Alarms, Safeguard Investigations, and Safeguard Engineering. These companies have branches throughout the country.

Customer service is at the core of our business, and our training, supervision, management, and support completely sets us apart from our competitors. Our skills cover the broad spectrum of business and home security, and we have amongst our clients, the major banks, retailers, Embassies, and manufacturers, as well as over 20 000 homes countrywide.
