Our company name, logo and its significance
Our company is named after the kestrel, a type of falcon bird that does very well in urban environments. It is a quiet bird with a unique method of hunting which gives rise to two older names - ‘windhover’ and ‘stand-gate’.
Its peculiar way of hunting its prey has also given the kestrel the nickname of ‘policeman’.
We are inspired by the characteristics of the kestrel and its nicknames which aptly describe the duties and responsibilities of our work.
True to form, we keep a low profile and advance in a quiet, discreet and skilful manner when we ‘hunt’ for adversaries/risks. While unobtrusive and seemingly “invisible” when we are carrying out our security work, the results we produce stand apart and reveal themselves.
Our brand logo depicts a stylised form of a kestrel in flight, which symbolises our soaring ambition to be a leading force in the security industry.
The name of our company in bold capital letters and in strong red reflects our passion for our tradecraft and determination to give our best in whatever we do.
The logo is completed by 2 curved strokes that encompass the kestrel symbol and name, reflecting our all-round methodology and holistic approach to consider all factors in any solution we deliver to our clients, so that the optimal outcome is achieved.
