GardaWorld, a Canadian private security firm based in Montreal, Quebec, was established in 1984. The company has more than 200 office locations around the world and is the fifth largest private security firm in the world, with operations in the United States, Canada, Africa, Asia and Europe. The company also operates in the Middle East, serving markets such as Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Somalia and Yemen.
GardaWorld's close protection services are provided by teams of highly trained, former special forces personnel from the United States and the United Kingdom. Much of the company's business focuses on physical security guard services and armored car services. However, it no longer provides guard services in the United States or Mexico, as it sold these guarding services to Andrews International in 2009.
