About Us

TSU is a Private Security Company that has exceptionally high standards and service levels and is used by blue-chip companies across South Africa that recognizes the value that the right security partner brings to their business.

TSU Protection Services

One of the Leading Private Security Companies in South Africa

Formed in 1999, to address a gap in the private security market in South Africa for highly trained professionals in the Security industry. Minimizing security risks is crucial in today’s business environment.

Failure to choose the right security partner can result in situations where your assets, property, and even the lives of your personnel are placed at risk.

We pride ourselves with the knowledge that our members undergo a strict selection and training process based on the methodologies used by specialized units in the South African Police and military.

Our comprehensive blue-chip client base bears testimony of our ability to ensure that our clients’ needs are met and their security risks reduced. A broad base of expertise, experience, and resources ensures that we deliver the best results attainable for each assignment.

Our highly qualified team of experts, sophisticated skills combined with their commitment to excellence, further add value and often creates additional opportunities for our clients.

Company Reputation

TSU operates within a niche market and has, over a relatively short period of twenty years, become highly regarded and recognized within the market as a leader, offering a world-class service. We provide a more personal approach to our clients. Our firm’s extensive experience in the public, private and non-governmental sectors, supplemented by our national support structure, our specialist training skills, and knowledge of the security industry gives us the necessary insight and experience to deliver the right solution to meet the client’s requirements.

We will commit to a potential project or a contract only if we are sure that we can deliver the requirements to our own unique high standards and service levels. We will never accept projects unless we are sure that we have the resources to deliver. We only provide those services where we know we have the required sustainable competencies to be a market leader.

Our strategy is to offer a comprehensive and integrated package of security services, almost like a one-stop shop to the client. Should we need to use outside vendors we ensure that they understand our ethos and comply with our service standards.
