Armed Close Protection & VIP Service

Global Security Services Group

Innovation in Armed Security Services

Our Close Protection department aims to achieve the highest quality of professionalism on a level, which can only be achieved by our agents on the ground who have extensive backgrounds in the military or police from around the world and the relevant experience in close protection operations, offering unmatched close protection services in the United Arab Emirates.

Our Close Protection services have a nationwide presence and we are fast becoming the go-to company as we are increasingly recognized by international security organisations and approaching us to manage assignments on their behalf.

As an armed close protection service provider, we understand the need for armed protection services to high-risk, high-net-worth individuals, companies, and foreign governments when delegation members visit the United Arab Emirates.

We conduct feasibility studies and design our concept of operations for submission for approval to the authorities in the UAE – this not only increases trust in our partnership with the Ministry of Interior but also with potential clients.

We design a bespoke service concept for close protection services based on specific needs. Our management has vast experience from different sectors and countries around the world, which adds to our expertise in designing a tailored concept of operations that will best suit the needs of clients requesting our services.

We do not only deploy agents on the ground with high-profile, high-risk profile experience in high-risk zones; our mandate is also to do continual training to upskill our agents regularly on a regular basis. Moreover, our lead agents have the depth of knowledge to assist the clients with day-to-day management challenges as part of the service agreement.
We are sensitive to Privacy and Discretion, and we ensure that non-disclosure agreements are signed on all assignments and in full compliance with the relevant General Data Protection Regulations, Global Security Services Group is fully insured and holds a Public Liability Insurance Policy.
The Close Protection section of Global Security Services Group specialises in armed close protection assignments. We provide secure transportation services, mobile security escorting, residential security services and counter-surveillance services.


Our specialised operatives have vast experience in covert surveillance operations, gathering information on fraud, theft, stalkers or harassment, long-term employee sickness compensation and much more. As a private company, we can only operate with the full approval from the UAE Government.

Manned Guarding

We design plans tailored to client’s requirements, based on their specific requirements. 

All our Residential Security Team guards are fully trained in accordance with the Ministerial Resolution No. (557) of 2008 concerning the Executive Regulations of Private Security Companies Law (Private Security Firms Regulatory Department).

Event Security

We design plans customised to clients’ requirements and inputs on event security. We have the expertise to monitor events in cooperation with all UAE Police Departments whilst physically and overtly staffing the event itself with our guards, thus maintaining a secured environment for all attendees.
