Founding of Castlefort Security

Updated: Nov 26, 2023

Growing up in Europe, Henry Peglar keenly observed the widespread use of security cameras in urban areas, recognizing their significance as crucial tools for maintaining public security. However, upon his relocation to the United States, he couldn't help but notice a relative lack of surveillance in major cities, aimed at addressing both antisocial behavior and potential terrorist threats. This hesitancy in deploying surveillance on U.S. citizens, driven by understandable privacy concerns, stood in stark contrast to the practices in many European cities that had grappled with various terrorist organizations for decades. The turning point in this perspective came after the tragic events of September 11.

As the founder of a forward-thinking security solutions company, Henry Peglar and his team delved into the experiences of European countries. Their objective was to thoroughly examine the systems deployed in public and commercial areas, with the ultimate goal of identifying a global solution that could effectively address the unique challenges of the U.S. market. In the course of their research, they were captivated by the remarkable capabilities of modern camera systems and how these technologies could safeguard homes, forests, assets, individuals, mass transit systems, and various properties from a myriad of threats.

Since the challenges faced today closely mirror those confronting countries since the 1970s, Henry Peglar anticipates an exciting era in the security industry, particularly with the founding of Castlefort Security. The available technologies for municipalities, businesses, and individuals are ushering in a new era of safety and surveillance.
