Since then, ADT merged with Protection 1, building upon their commercial capabilities and customer focused approach with over 10 strategic acquisitions that include ASG, Aronson Security Group offering risk management consultancy and Red Hawk Fire & Security providing leadership in fire, life safety and integrated security solutions.  ADT is focused on decades of experiences serving commercial and national account clients across North America and Canada.
