Aronson Security Group (ASG) has launched a converged security services division to serve the increased demand for physical and logical security services, and a market that many analysts are forecasting to be in the billions. According to Hunt Business Intelligence/4A International, the demand for these products and services could be as high as $11B in 2008 growing to $22.8B by 2010.

“ASG has consistently pioneered new approaches to security,” said Phil Aronson, CEO of Aronson Security Group. “With this move our clients will now have the ability to design an enterprise security architecture and strategy that allows them to increase productivity by leveraging existing infrastructure investments, lower costs by avoiding redundant assessments, products and services, and, most importantly, create strategic business advantage from security investments.”

“Physical security integrators must move from strictly implementation services to enterprise security services that improve the ability of the organization to execute,” said Steve Hunt of 4A International ( “Aronson Security Group has proven it can lead the way by approaching security as a highly leveraged infrastructure investment.”

Tim Winston, a veteran IT security executive, has been named to lead the new division. “Tim has been a trusted security advisor and enterprise security architect to Corporate Information and Security Officers for 15 years,” said Aronson. “We believe our clients will see an immediate added value in Tim’s insights into their security strategies as well as how they leverage their IT infrastructure in new and efficient ways.”
