Combining strategic, tactical, technical, and location-based intelligence.


Our intelligence experts can locate high-level threats and offer specialized risk analysis. And as industry leaders, we strive to incorporate protective intelligence into every aspect of our service. Backed by our vast network of resources, we deliver world-class intelligence and tactical support.

Your objectives are important to us. Whether you’re simply looking for insights, or you require follow-up with tactical services, our global network will work for you. Through our multi-faceted approach, we deliver increased protection to our clients’ personnel, operations and assets. We don’t simply place ‘boots on the ground’ nearly anywhere and anytime. We leverage all our resources to keep your organization safe.


Because of our multi-disciplinary expertise and comprehensive approach to intelligence we provide the following abilities:

  • Aggregating information from our global network
  • Sifting through vast amounts of data and unstructured information, providing you with uniquely focused situational awareness
  • Applying the synthesis and analysis methods needed to properly prepare for, and effectively respond to, rapidly changing global conditions.

Our intelligence team comprises of highly-experienced and trained individuals with backgrounds in civilian and military intelligence, as well as traditional security fields. We’re now offering the same protective intelligence support previously reserved for operational field agents.


Combining strategic, tactical, technical, and location-based intelligence.


We deliver standard or highly-specialized risk analysis information on a daily, weekly or as-needed basis. Our reporting highlights global activity and major local events that can impact your organization. These events include everything from civil disorder and armed conflict to natural disasters and health warnings. Intelligence Reports include a Weekly Intelligence Summary (WIS), Executive Daily Intelligence Brief (EDIB) and Ad Hoc Reports for special events and emerging situations.


Our global incident reporting services provide our agents and clients with highly-filtered notifications of significant events occurring near personnel or facilities, along travel routes, or at other key locations of interest to you. We can include and exclude information sources, and set threshold filters for certainty, severity, keywords or phrases and a range of other options, to ensure that the information you receive is tailored to provide relevant informational value.

Our analysts use technology developed and patented by Pinkerton to scour countless information sources in real time, including social media, local news, and police/fire/EMS networks. In addition, we incorporate information and intelligence shared by members of the Pinkerton Vigilance™ Network.


We provide a secure web-based platform that allows you to quickly pinpoint specific events and situations – both globally and locally – that could significantly and adversely impact your organization.

The Threat Monitor Dashboard combines multi-media content from an array of sources and delivers near real-time perspective on dynamic threat conditions. Our intelligence specialists configure every dashboard based on the information types and sources determined most vital to your organization.


Unlike many business GPS products currently available in the commercial market, we utilize a full range of location-based services to provide monitoring, tracking, and response solutions which are dependable, accurate and tailored to your needs. We leverage close relationships with equipment manufacturers, developers and web service providers to offer you a broad range of field-tested solutions—the same solutions our agents employ in the field.

Devices may be purchased or leased as needed; they include an activated SIM card, connection to an appropriate data plan, and pre-loaded satellite airtime. Service components include:

  • A total GPS solution
  • 24/7/365 monitoring of alert conditions
  • Direct connectivity with response services
  • Smartphone applications
  • Battery-powered and hard-wired devices
  • Satellite phone capabilities
  • Personnel and vehicle transponders
  • Satellite pole-to-pole text messaging
  • SOS (Panic Button) capability
  • Peripherals suitable to most environments

These enterprise GPS monitoring products and services are used by our agents to enhance our services, such as executive protection and natural disaster response. As part of our protective intelligence offerings, our GPS Solutions can be added to your organization’s Threat Monitor Dashboard and included in our focused global incident reporting service.

This extra layer of integration can maximize your protection efforts, by providing additional information and delivering effective situational awareness — the most vital element in any effective crisis planning and response.


Building your own infrastructure that can support your risk, intelligence, security, protection, and investigation needs can be time-consuming and expensive. With the Pinkerton Vigilance Network (PVN), you have full access to our extensive network anytime, anywhere.

The Pinkerton Vigilance Network is an exclusive platform that allows you to leverage our comprehensive network of strategic, technical, and tactical services. Our global system of closely connected resources can quickly deploy action plans, informed by local knowledge of culture and landscape, when and where you need them.

How protective intelligence supports our services

We specialize in custom solutions for our clients. Our assess + design + deliver approach paired with our global expertise will work for you. It’s rare that organizations know precisely which services they want. That's why we assemble pertinent services for common solutions to modern day organizational needs. Our advisors work closely with you to build a toolkit and roadmap that are best in class. We always consider your organization's unique risk profile.


Data without context is noise. Information without relevance can waste precious time when making important decisions about the protection of your personnel, operations and facilities. We do more than just deliver reliable data; we can provide temporary or embedded intelligence analysts to help you identify actual threats and determine how best to counteract them. Our deep expertise in fusion center design and startup allows us to take a process-driven approach to establish the optimal intelligence center for your organization’s specific needs. You also gain access to our global network of resources.
