We’re the eyes that watch the backs of our country’s most elite watch dogs.

Ariel Secure Technologies was founded in New Mexico in 1989. Like many small businesses, we relied on the relationships we fostered within our own communities to develop and support our company. We’ve grown a lot over the decades, but the importance we place on the people we work with and work for has remained as critical as ever.


When the alarm bells go off, we stick around.

The hearts behind a more vigilant eye.

Al Perez, President

Al Perez


Al formed Ariel Secure Technologies in 1989 with the conviction that the IT and security industry could do better. It’s an experiment that’s paid off, as Ariel is now a leader in enterprise security solutions for the nation’s most elite intelligence organizations.

With over 37 years of experience in the business, Al remains excited each day about the evolution and advancement of security technology, and how being an agent of innovation can help make a real impact on people’s lives. When not at work, Al enjoys visiting new places, exploring hiking trails, or settling in for a night of board games with his wife.
