Vigilant Security was founded by Felix A. Perumal (current Chairman) in 1973 with his wife Chitra Perumal as a partner. At the time Felix Perumal was an Inspector of Police in the Sri Lanka Police Department. He had served 19 years in the department at the time and decided to retire early based on the Sinhala Only Act of 1956. He was 37 years old at the time.
While thinking about career options, he saw the potential in Sri Lanka for Private Security. There were only four other companies involved in private security at the time. So Vigilant Security & Investigation Services were born in the room of his house with 8 guards. The first client was Colombo Gas & Water Company. Over the years we have serviced major corporate and Government entities.
In 1989 Vigilant became a Limited Liability company. Subsequently Surani, Roshni & Mario Perumal, the children of Felix and Chitra became shareholders and Directors of the Company. Mario joined the company as a working Director in 1994 and currently serves the company as its Managing Director.
International Investigators Network was established in 2002 after carving out the investigation division of Vigilant Security for that company to become the only company in Sri Lanka at the time to provide investigation services as its core business. Today it has become the leading agency in Sri Lanka with a worldwide reach through its partner network and country wide presence.
Vigilant Security Technology Division was established in 2003 upon seeing the potential and the growing demand in the market for electronic security solutions. In 2004 we were appointed the Distributor in Sri Lanka by Brooks of USA (now TydenBrooks), the oldest security seal manufacturer in the world, to market Tamper Evident Security Seals. Today we represent many other leading companies in the industry as well. We are the number one security bag distributor and the number two tamper evident security seals distributor in Sri Lanka.
In 2005 we were appointed as the distributor for Bosch Intrusion products in Sri Lanka and started a Bosch equipped Central Alarm Monitoring Station. Today Vigilant Premium is one of the leading security systems solution providers in Sri Lanka with a large corporate client base and some key projects under its belt.
