FORTIFEYE’s multiple layers of integrated protection security begins with The Electric Guard Dog™ Fence, an intimidating 10-foot-tall barrier looming behind an existing perimeter fence.

FORTIFEYE, the Gold Award Winner in the 2020 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards Program for Best Perimeter Protection System, 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.

In less than a year since the launch of FORTIFEYE in August of 2020, AMAROK has installed more than 30 FORTIFEYE solutions throughout the United States, with an additional 20 scheduled for installation in 2021.

This is a testament to the current climate and rise in property theft and need for a unique solution like FORTIFEYE.

Criminals move along when they encounter a well-maintained, full-perimeter, solar-powered electric fence with clear warning signs.

If they persist, contact with The Electric Guard Dog Fence discharges 7,000 volts of memorable, non-fatal shock.

It’s no surprise that 98% of customers with The Electric Guard Dog fence experience no external theft after installation.

(Named after the wolf-like creature of legend that was said to guard villages from intruders. This name pays homage to our heritage and positions us to bring our company into a new era that will include growth, innovation, and new perimeter alarm or electric fence solutions. Our goal is to protect commercial properties such as truck yards, recycling properties, auto dismantlers, and more.

FORTIFEYE enhances this 24/7 protection with video surveillance: Cameras capture and record every second in real time, from the would-be thief’s first approach to flight.

Then, it performs remote video monitoring to validate any breach and dispatch authorities. Sirens and alarms add to the deterrent.

Although the COVID-19 pandemic severely disrupted business plans in 2020, FORTIFEYE proved its value by protecting property as employees were required to work remotely – leaving many sites and businesses empty and un-monitored.

FORTIFEYE customers gained considerable peace of mind knowing that their properties were safe from theft and vandalism, due to the integration of The Electric Guard Dog Fence, 24/7 video surveillance, and remote monitoring.

As a historical note, 2020 was the year the company changed their name and branding to AMAROK, and continued that rollout despite the impact of COVID-19 on their markets.

The company felt the new name reflected the intensity, aggressiveness, dedication, and innovation they offer daily to their customers, despite challenges.

It also indicates the full-service perimeter security organization they have become, while building on the legacy of The Electric Guard Dog Fence.

AMAROK Takes Home the Gold in 2020 ‘ASTORS’ Awards Program

American Security Today’s ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards program is now in its Sixth Year and continues to recognize the Outstanding Innovations of top firms and agencies in the Homeland Security and Public Safety fields.

2020 was a very challenging year for everyone due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the much heralded AST ‘ASTORS’ Awards Winners Presentations and exclusive Luncheon at the Jacob Javits Center in NYC had to be canceled and rescheduled for 2021 due to the virus.
