Guardiar has its origins in the former Betafence High Security Projects business which specialized in delivering turnkey perimeter security solutions. Guardiar evolved out of the need to provide high-risk industries with a trusted, visionary partner to meet all their current and future perimeter security needs, reducing the risks associated with engaging multiple service providers.

Today Guardiar addresses the unique need to provide a full service total perimeter security solution to its global customers.
