AMAROK Earns Top Honors at the 2022 ASTORS Homeland Security Awards

AMAROK’s innovative perimeter security products have been recognized by American Security Today (AST) among the nation’s best security solutions for consecutive years.

In the 2022 Awards announced in November, AMAROK won the Platinum ASTOR for ‘Best Fencing Solution’ for their Portable Electric Guard Dog™ Fence. AMAROK also took home a Silver ASTOR for ‘Best Perimeter Protection Solution,’ also honoring the unique portable fence.

AST’s ‘ASTORS’ Awards honor security vendor solutions that deliver enhanced value, benefit and intelligence to end-users in varied government, homeland security, enterprise and public safety vertical markets.

AMAROK has won ASTOR Awards each year since 2019, including a distinctive honor in 2021 citing ‘extraordinary leadership and innovation.’ At this year’s awards ceremony, Danielle Reaves, Account Executive, accepted the awards on behalf of AMAROK.

“We are always excited to earn these awards and the market validation they bring,” says AMAROK Senior Vice President for Sales and Marketing, Mike Dorrington. “They result from a restless search for improvement and rewarding efforts from our team. And to do so multiple years in a row is a testament to the effectiveness of our service.”

“We’re honored for a knowledgeable source like AST to cite us as the best at what we do, and that’s protect our customers whose valuable assets might otherwise be at risk.”

This year’s product of consideration from AMAROK, the Portable Electric Guard™ Dog fence, features dual-layered, free-standing fence panels, with safe isolation of electric wires from its chain-link layer, configurable to any size or shaped lot. Its common applications include:

  • Construction sites for site-wide security or creation of secure equipment storage zones.
  • Protection of seasonal inventory or overflow lots.
  • Temporarily extends the boundaries of The Electric Guard Dog™ fence line.

The core goal for AMAROK’s line of security fences, and for their portable fence, continues to stop crime on commercial and industrial properties whose security needs begin at their perimeter—even when those perimeters change or need to move.

AMAROK is known for continuous advancement in patented systems. This year’s winning portable fence is not their first product built upon the core Electric Guard Dog fence to be an ASTORS winner. AMAROK’s integrated solution, FORTIFEYE, which combines the electric fence with video surveillance and monitoring, also earned an ASTOR in its introductory year. “FORTIFEYE maximizes the inherent protection of our fence and the customer’s confidence in AMAROK,“ said Dorrington. “And now we have added the convenience of portability for large, temporary construction and other sites.”

AMAROK CEO Mark Wesley noted, “These awards demonstrate that our commercial and industrial clients can rely on AMAROK to stay ahead of the criminals who try to prey on their outdoor property. In the end, it’s our customers who reap the benefit of our efforts.”
