With a foundation in technical surveillance countermeasures (TSCM), Esoteric specialises in proactively protecting sensitive conversations, information and assets from threats, attacks and espionage. Its services include bug detection, counter surveillance, radio frequency-shielded rooms, security risk analysis and physical security penetration testing. The team identifies potential vulnerabilities and implements threat mitigation, with additional expertise in evidence collection, allowing organisations to take action against theft, fraud or espionage.

Highly-experienced, accredited experts

Esoteric is the only UK company with an accreditation from the National Security Inspectorate for both electronic sweeping and covert investigations – a hallmark of excellence. With customers around the world, the company supports blue chip companies, government organisations and individuals.

This acquisition builds on our existing capabilities as the UK’s leading provider of technology and intelligence-led security services. Following the acquisition, we created Mitie Intelligence Services (MIS), which now delivers all specialist and bespoke security solutions.
