AMAROK Wins Two ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards In 2021

First-Time Accolade—AMAROK Merits ‘ASTORS’ Extraordinary Leadership & Innovation Award

AMAROK™ has earned the ‘ASTORS’ Extraordinary Leadership & Innovation Award for 2021—the highest distinction that American Security Today (AST) offers.

AST’s annual ‘ASTORS’ Awards Program honors vendor solutions that deliver enhanced value, benefit, and intelligence to end-users in a variety of government, homeland security, enterprise, and public safety vertical markets.

This prestigious award specifically recognizes AMAROK for exhibiting continued innovation in the field of advancing deception technology and advanced network security threat detection.

“Winning the ‘ASTORS’ Extraordinary Leadership & Innovation Award is a unique privilege,” says Mike Dorrington, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing for AMAROK. “As an industry leader that strives to keep our nation secure from crime, we are one of two companies in the world to win this coveted award in 2021.”

Now in its sixth year, the Annual ‘ASTORS’ Awards is the preeminent U.S. Homeland Security Awards Program, highlighting the most innovative and forward-thinking security solutions coming onto the market today.


“‘ASTORS’ nominations are evaluated on technical innovation, interoperability, specific impact within the category, overall impact to the industry, relatability to other industry technologies, and application feasibility outside of the industry,” says AST’s publisher, Michael J. Madsen.

“This specific, prestigious award is a clear indication that AMAROK as a company helps enable security leaders and commercial business owners to protect their property and stop crime on a large scale before it occurs,” says AMAROK CEO Mark Wesley.

Known for innovation, AMAROK continues to achieve technological advancements that keep its patented security systems steps ahead of the criminal mind. Although The Electric Guard Dog™ Fence is the key product that AMAROK offers, other important innovations include enhancements in lighting, alarms, video surveillance, perimeter detection systems, and FORTIFEYE™—which won an award of its own from AST in 2021.

AMAROK is the Third-Time Winner—‘ASTORS’ Best Perimeter Protection System Award

It’s just getting more inspiring to make this annual announcement.

For the third consecutive year, AMAROK’s FORTIFEYE™ perimeter-security solution has won a coveted ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Award for Best Perimeter Protection System, and a second time for Platinum distinction.

FORTIFEYE remains the first-and-only perimeter-security and crime-prevention solution of its kind, integrating electric security fencing, video surveillance, and video monitoring for commercial and industrial sites. FORTIFEYE deters the most-tenacious criminals from attempting a break-in.

“There is a growing market to protect commercial businesses that store valued property outdoors from theft and vandalism—especially in these times of limited inventories and interrupted supply chains,” says Dorrington. “It continues to be a great honor for American Security Today to recognize AMAROK as the best in the field of perimeter protection.”

FORTIFEYE is superior to other perimeter security solutions because it has multiple layers of integrated security to protect commercial businesses.

  • First, The Electric Guard Dog™ Fence delivers 7,000 medically safe, but memorable volts of electricity to would-be thieves.
  • Second, cameras capture and record every second of activity in real time, from the initial approach to flight.
  • Third, remote video monitoring validates any breaches and alerts authorities.

And the entire system is solar-powered.

“FORTIFEYE delivers maximum peace of mind to our customers,” says Wesley. “Now, we offer strong prevention with our electric fence as well as additional layers of protection to ensure an even more robust security solution.”


AMAROK is a full-perimeter security company based in Columbia, South Carolina that provides commercial security services throughout the United States and Canada. Specializing in solar-powered electric fencing and perimeter security systems for commercial properties, AMAROK also provides supplemental surveillance solutions, including cameras, lights, and alarms. Together, these business security services form the ultimate crime prevention solution for any business.
