Providing Protective Services and High Level Security Services Nationwide

“The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as the lion”

By the very nature of our work, we are called upon to manage many of the most personal, private and sensitive issues in the clients’ life. We understand they expect us to honor the confidentiality of all practices, procedures and information learned during the normal course of doing business. We fully anticipate being held to those expectations. In fact, we commit to exceed them.

Within this website, you will not see client lists, references or pictures displayed exploiting our work with clients for the purpose to impress visitors or prospective clients. You will not see photographs of our Protection Specialists posted in foreign locations surreptitiously protecting our clients. VIRTUS will not, without the approval and consent of the client, display events or protection details or services we provide. VIRTUS takes seriously it’s privacy policy and the commitment to client confidentiality.

VIRTUS is a leading Personal Protection Firm in the Midwest, located in Springfield, Missouri and serving clients nationwide. VIRTUS is focused on providing a full range of Personal and Professional Security Services designed to mitigate our client’s threats. We are not the largest security firm, but many have gratifyingly called us the best. Therein lies all the difference in the world. We look forward to being of service.

We’ve been at this for well over 25 years and more than 100 years in combined leadership. When you look over the material below, it looks a lot like what every other protection or security firm does. For VIRTUS, it’s all about the people. When you take problem solvers, train them, educate them and mentor them in your craft, then allow them make decisions and give them the responsibility to resolve issues as they come up, it’s an amazing combination.

Our approach to Personal Protection is grounded in the belief that the best Protective Service is an effective blend of facilitation and security. We have consistently demonstrated that Personal Protection can be reasonably comfortable and a seamless element of the individual, family or corporate environment. Protective Consulting Services include a full-scale risk assessment and protective program development. 

VIRTUS is seasoned. Our Protection Specialists rarely encounter a situation they have not dealt with before, often in a more dangerous or dynamic environment. Our Protection Specialists are handpicked individuals who are driven to exceed performance expectations. They have not only proven themselves to us at VIRTUS, but most importantly to our clients. Rest assured that the drive for excellence is as relentless as the determination required to see the project through to a successful conclusion.

From workplace violence issues relating to layoffs, terminations and disgruntled employees, to dangerous or unstable environments for corporate travelers, VIRTUS has the solutions and the experience to provide professional and reliable protection for Dignitary’s, CEO’s, Board of Directors and other Corporate leaders. Personal Protection should never be mistaken for Body-guarding. Our belief is that the best Executive/ Personnel Protection Services are based on advance preparations and planning, timely information, liaison with local authorities and the use of highly trained professionals.
