Protection/Security Augmentation Teams 

Security Augmentation Teams are commonly referred to as \”SAT.\” SAT teams are used to supplement existing security teams. These teams are often used to support/supplement security teams for foreign dignitaries, celebrities, government officials, high-profile individuals and corporate security teams. This is commonly done for multiple reasons. The existing teams are often shorthanded, the teams are faced with an active threat, require an increase in capabilities, the existing teams are commonly smaller and don\’t require larger full-time teams. SAT teams are typically security teams from the area in which the existing team is traveling to. However, it is not uncommon for a Protection firm like, VIRTUS to be retained and requested to travel nationwide or even internationally to keep their clients safe while traveling, attending training\’s, national sales meetings or other meetings outside of their normal footprint.

VIRTUS Protection Specialists Advance Teams

Dedicated Advance Teams are designed for clients to whom time represents money. If you need the fastest, most seamless movement possible while incorporating the best available security, then this is the go-to option.

A dedicated VIRTUS Advance Team has prepared the ground ahead of you. They have expedited immigration and customs. The Advance Team has fast tracked movements to the hotel, where check-in has already been completed. The conference center is booked, vehicles rented, communications set up and security posted. All you have to do is show up and focus on the mission at hand.

Behind the scenes, long before you arrive, the VIRTUS Advance team will have discretely visited every venue prior to your arrival. Your dedicated Protection Specialists, who traveled with you, will have already received precise details on layouts, seating and emergency exits. You will never need wonder again which way to the bathroom.

The Advance team will have coordinated with local Police. The Advance Team will ensure you are not troubled and your time is not wasted. The Team will have already de-conflicted with any agencies or departments we might come in contact with. In short, it’s almost as if you never left home, or as near to that as possible. For those who are at the top of their game, where intense focus is required without distraction, this option is absolutely the way to go.

The interesting detail about VIRTUS Advance Teams is that the client rarely gets to meet these meticulous individuals. Once the client arrives at the first secured destination, that is the cue for the Advance Team to depart to the next location. We strive to be one city, one country or one continent ahead of those we serve, so as to never get caught short.

Advance team members are detail driven, meticulous and trained to be, above all things, efficient. These are the ultimate \”make it happen\” individuals who realize that one small mistake can have the client wrestling with administrative details, when he should be concentrating on the task at hand. The lack of focus can cost millions in the conference room. Distracted clients are bad for business and bad for VIRTUS. The Dedicated Advance Team mitigates that risk. It would be fair to state that our Protection Specialists are primarily results driven.

VIRTUS Advance Teams are the only section of the company which is process driven. Process in this case refers to the mission execution checklists they all adhere to with unswerving passion and commitment. They are their own niche clique within a very small niche of professionals. 

Special Operations/Projects 

On occasion, we all wish we had a trusted confidante to undertake some important task that is best handled with discretion. For a wide variety of reasons, high profile or high net worth individuals occasionally are in a position where it makes more sense to deploy a personal envoy.

It could be as simple as making arrangements for delivery and or signing for a substantial purchase for a client, while he or she is away on business.
Other needs might be be family based, where outside publicity is not in the best interests of the client or their family. In other cases, the client cannot be seen to be active or involved in the process.

There are a few are integrally complex situations, where teams may need to be deployed from one country to another or one continent to another. At times there may be one single mission where the stakes are enormous. 

In this vast sea of variables there exists only two constants-

  • The first is the level of professionalism you can expect to receive is extraordinary.
  • The second is the level of confidentiality, which is nothing short of absolute. That is the end of the story.

Special Operations are discussed on a case by case basis with the client in conditions of the utmost discretion.

Evacuation/Rescue Services  

Evacuation services extract people who are at risk due to difficult conditions and transport them safely to a more secure environment. Evacuation services are used to extract people from regions that are unsafe due to civil unrest, war, natural disasters or other factors that make normal travel methods too dangerous or impossible. There are extractions that involve medical emergencies where a clients require immediate evacuation and transport to a medical facility.  Evacuation needs may also stem from environmental or vehicular/recreational equipment accidents, sudden onset of an illness or could be due to any combination of all of the above reasons.
