Group History

Being Protege means always being ahead – everywhere. It is more than just being prepared at that time; it is being prepared at all times. It is more than following an example; It is becoming one. It is more than overcoming obstacles; It is overcoming oneself. It is more than leading; It is knowing how to serve. It is more than an attitude; It is a life style.

It is always being ahead – everywhere. Thus, it is necessary to foresee movements, actions, and opportunities, which is what happened almost 40 years ago, in 1971, when the leaders of the Protege Group decided to start a successful security services company. A small team and a few armored cars gave birth to the Group, which currently has 16,000 employees and 1,700 vehicles.

It is more than just being prepared at that time; it is being prepared at all times. The importance of properly training and refreshing its security agents has always been a priority in the Group. That is why Provig Formação de Profissionais was set up, in 1988, to assure the proper technical preparation of its staff, thus assuring quality in the activities performed by each one of them.

It is more than following an example; It is becoming one. Present in 14 States and in the Distrito Federal, the Protege Group currently is one of the largest private security companies and has been among the best corporations in Brazil for years, according to several renowned media, such as Exame, Isto É, and Valor Econômico.

It is more than overcoming obstacles; It is overcoming oneself. All seven companies which comprise the Group have their Quality Management System deployed and ISO 9001:2008 certified.

It is more than leading; It is knowing how to serve. The company offers various services: valuable logistics, security, treasury, bank automation, document processing, training of security agents, auxiliary air transportation services, among others. But the most relevant are the many social actions carried out by the company, which stimulates staff’s children in social & educational programs, advertises good environmental practices, and takes part in projects around the country.

It is more than an attitude; It is a life style. The growth and consolidation of the Protege Group has only been possible thanks to the ongoing investment in its human resources, without which nothing would have happened. Human capital: that is its main reason for existing, the purpose, and the cause of being Protege.

Protege: excellence made by people, for people.
