About Us

Since 1997, Intersecurity-Georgia has been operating in the Georgian market and is one of the first and largest privately held security companies, offering to customers a wide range of security services

Intersecurity Georgia Ltd. was founded in 1997 by a group of dedicated individuals with a distinguished record of service in law enforcement and military. Launched initially as a security firm with Tbilisi as its primary service footprint, ISG’s leadership soon established a major regional office in Adjara region, setting the company on a path toward becoming a full-service security leader. With a staff base of over 400 highly trained and skilled security personnel, we provide highly effective physical and electronic security services to a wide range of public and private sector clients across the country. We have 20 years of experience of working with companies, organizations and charities. Our clients can rest assured that when they deal with us they are dealing with a professional company. We are fully licensed by LEPL Security Police.
