AtHoc, Inc., a company that deals in network-centric emergency mass notification systems (EMNS), recently announced that its IWSAlerts solution has been selected by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency (CBP) to alert, account for and protect 60,000 of its agents.
AtHoc’s IWSAlerts mass notification solution enables large private and public enterprises to extend their alert reach to thousands of personnel across widely dispersed buildings and facilities in an emergency. AtHoc IWSAlerts transforms the IP network into a 2-way, net-centric enterprise-class mass notification and emergency communications system.
"AtHoc's platform and private cloud architecture is fully compliant with government security certifications and DHS requirements for data and personnel information security," said Dubhe Beinhorn, AtHoc's VP of Operations, Public Sector. "CBP's analysis of solutions available that could meet their stringent security requirements and directly address federal mandates for mass emergency notification and accountability resulted in their selection of AtHoc IWSAlerts."
Secure and reliable, the AtHoc solution’s interoperability, scalability, and security measures have made AtHoc the #1 provider of EMNS systems across the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD). AtHoc’s next-generation life safety systems are also deployed in major federal government agencies as well as commercial/industrial, healthcare and higher education organizations, such as the U.S. Dept. of Veterans Affairs, Microsoft (News - Alert), Raytheon, Baylor Health Care Systems, and UCLA.
"Initially adopted by the U.S. Coast Guard and TSA to address their emergency alerting, staff recall and personnel accountability needs, the AtHoc system has been successfully used during the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, earthquakes in American Samoa and Haiti, earthquake and tsunami in Japan, and most recently hurricane Sandy. It is a privilege to be a trusted partner to DHS agents who daily, are the front line of America's defense against threats, terrorism and natural disasters," said Guy Miasnik, AtHoc President and CEO.
