Piracy suppression

And they're not talking about pirating software:

Background Asia Risk Solutions (BARS) is the leading provider of armed escorts in South East Asia for maritime assets. We have conducted a number of complex operations safely guarding oil and gas floating assets and their convoys. We have also provided armed escorts to other slow moving convoys including ocean going tugs and barges.

Piracy in the Malacca Straits of southest Asia is so prevalent that Lloyd's Market Association has declared it a high-risk area and are raising insurance premiums.
