Electronic Control Security, Inc. (ECSI) EKCS 0.00% ( www.ecsiinternational.com ), a global leader in entry control and perimeter security systems, on May 22 announced it has teamed with STS Security, LLC (STS) ( www.SpecTacServ.com ), a veteran-owned small business with extensive experience providing weapons, munitions, ballistic protection, tactical training and physical security services. Together, the two companies are offering a total solution to piracy at sea.
Arthur Barchenko, President of ECSI, states, “Piracy is an ongoing hazard in the Gulf of Aden, along the Somalia coast and south coast of Africa as well as other areas in the Near East and Southeast Asia. In a six-month period, 78 vessels were boarded worldwide with 561 crew taken hostage and over 20 kidnapped, killed or missing. Violence against crew members continues to increase and the threat remains pervasive.”
Barchenko then stated that APT is a comprehensive integrated application of ECSI’s proprietary security systems in concert with its over 35 years of expertise protecting sensitive installations. Compliant with applicable international law and protocol, STS security specialists are selected from the best of our nation’s military, special operations and law enforcement professionals. Each expert brings years of real world operational experience to protective operations and anti-terrorism/force protection missions.
