Our Security and Detective Company "Vikhr" Izhevsk, has been providing its services since 1998.
It was established by former officers of the Udmurt Republic’s Ministry of Internal Affairs’ Organized Crime and Terrorism Prevention Directorate.
At the moment “Vikhr” consists of two subdivisions:
• LLC Private Security Company "Vikhr-Izh" - a private security company providing personal security and physical security for private and public property in Izhevsk.
• Detective Agency - one of few detective agencies in Izhevsk that provides privately licensed services in this particular field.
Except for the main types of private security services, we also provide secret shopper service in Izhevsk, which allows the employer to examine the service level of his workforce, as well as polygraph service – which is the correct term for a lie detector.
Another strategic partner of “Vikhr” is the law firm "Business–Analytics". It provides legal services and groundwork.

Why are we called "Vikhr"?
Vikhr (in English whirlwind) is an air element of nature. Air is something which always surrounds you, it is where you exist. Air is invisible unless it turns into a force - a whirlwind. It encounters no obstacles and no power can stop it. By taming this force of nature it is possible to make it a reliable form of protection which will guard you and your interests.
The name fully reflects the essence of our work. On the one hand, we are like air, something that is always with you, something that you are used to, something you cannot do without. But should you face any danger, "Vikhr" will use all its power to protect you.
Our credo is "Only those have honour who managed to gain it…"
