SOS Security celebrates 50 years in 2019. It all began in 1969, when Edward B. Silverman, CPP, founded the company as “Security Operations Systems.” The name was an offshoot of his father’s window cleaning company, called “International Services,” which also provided a little “Watch Guard” services for their window cleaning clients.
As he listened to feedback from clients, he knew we could be doing much more. In 1972, he changed the company name to SOS Security Incorporated (and later to “LLC”), positioning us to compete for the long haul, and we began providing security personnel and related services.
2019 will be a year to reflect on our storied legacy, and celebrate how it defines our history and shapes our future.
