The Security and Strategy Corporation, typically referred to as SSC, is a Private Military Corporation based in Miami. Its CEO is Ernest Stockwell. Two of its Contractors, Tyson Rios and Elliot Salem, are the main characters in the game, Army of Two. During the course of the game, SSC buys Black Mountain Industries and becomes the largest private military contractor corporation in the world, and several of its employees are behind a conspiracy to make the U.S. military look incompetent and incapable, so as to ultimately have it replaced with an apparently much more capable (and profit-driven) commercial army - which would be SSC. With Salem and Rios, the SSC are shown to have very capable and effective employees. During the duo's assault on the SSC Headquarters, many former friends and associates attack the two, and as referred to by Salem as "friends" showing the corruption and selfish nature of said soldiers.
Trans World Operations (T.W.O.) is the successor to SSC.
