Guardian Professional Security is one of the largest Celebrity Protection Agencies in the world and the largest in the Eastern United States.
Our Directors of Security (see below) have been with Guardian for an average of 10 years each. Each has protected & led protection teams for high profile celebrities and artists worldwide.
We provide the following services…
- Directors of Security
- Advance Teams
- Touring Venue Security
- Close Protection Officers / Bodyguards
- Central Intelligence / H.Q.
- Estate Security/Surveillance
We also have career long relationships with trusted and licensed Protection Specialist throughout N. America, Europe, Asia, South America, Africa and Australia with access to armored vehicles, armed guards, medics and local intelligence. We also have relationships with foreign Military and Law Enforcement alike. This allows us to not only gain local intelligence from a trusted source but also helps in scenarios where we as Americans cannot carry firearms in other countries due to law and we will have physical back up at our disposal. We live in an ever-changing world and keeping a pulse on the environment our principals will venture into is of utmost importance.
Through experience, we also know that every principal is different in regard to their comfortability with their bodyguard(s). While we never get too close to the clients (relationship wise) we are not naive to the fact that we must be around them at all times and there has to be a good vibe or connection, so we provide flexible styles of protection and bodyguards to better fit the Artists/Celebrities wants and needs.
We are very aware of the threats that exist for our profile of clientele. We not only understand but have vast experience dealing with crowd control, stalkers, terrorist attacks, property crimes and personal attacks. We “think like the bad guy” in everything we do. We train for physical fitness, strength, Mixed Martial Arts as well as our most valuable weapon…education in our exclusive Training Center in Dania Beach. Here we receive the knowledge and training necessary to protect our clients in the real world. We have letters of recommendation and referrals upon request which we are happy to share.
Technology and Social Media are both a blessing and a curse. We understand the benefits for our clients, but we also are fully aware of the risks they present. We know that it’s important to not only protect the client’s well-being, it’s also important we protect their and their family’s’ privacy. We do so in a respectful manner in which not to jeopardize the client or paparazzi’s safety.
All of our Bodyguards are highly trained in Advanced Emergency Medical Care which covers…
- Medical and Trauma Emergencies
- EMS Operations
- Pharmacological Intervention
- Chemical Attack Response
- Hemorrhagic control of trauma induced injury. This includes gunshot wound treatment, edged weapons attacks, IED blast injuries and general profuse bleeding.
- Blunt Force Traumatic Injury such as weaponized vehicles
- Airway Ventilation
- Scene Safety and the movement & treatment of the injured to a safer environment.
We sharpen our skills and perfect our craft both on the road and off at our new and exclusive Training Facility in Dania Beach where we receive “Guardian MMA” training, License Courses, Medical Training and hands on “real life scenario” training from our most experienced Bodyguards.

“In our business, security is of upmost importance. Just one violation can leave an artist vulnerable to serious safety risks. I hired Anton because I believe him to be the best there is in our industry. I trust in his ability to protect just as I do for all of Guardian’s employees because I know he only hires the best personal protection guys in the business. I have worked very closely with Anton during his tenor with Alicia Keys and in my observation, I have found him to be extremely alert, detailed-orientated, punctual and an excellent on-the-fly decision maker which are all vital elements in his line of work. Perhaps, my favorite of Anton’s attributes is the same reason why I would recommend Guardian to any management firm or artist…his work ethic. He strives to exceed his own, high expectations in all that he does. He is strong-willed and strong-bodied yet also kind and caring and is as trustworthy as they come. When you combine all of those characteristics with his experience in high-risk security it makes for the perfect person, to protect even the most at-risk clients. I strongly recommend Guardian to any artist that is serious about security.”

"My name is Derrick “E.I” Lawrence, I am the VP of Young Money Entertainment. For the last 5 years of my time at Young Money, Anton Kalaydjian was head of security. While under his watch we did not have a single incident, accident or allegation that could have put any of my artists in harm’s way while Anton and his Guardian staff was on security detail. I admire his professionalism his principals and his work ethic, I look forward to working with Guardian in the future and wish him all the best.”

“Guardian Security is by far the best security company we have used for our Artists. You and your guards have served them extremely well and we have never felt more safe about their well being then we do when they are with you, Joe, Frank etc. I would strongly recommend Guardian to anyone who values their safety or the safety of their clients. If I ever needed someone to protect my family or me, you know who I am calling.”
