AtHoc and DISA Partner on Mass Notification System

AtHoc announced that the Defense Information Systems Agency (News - Alert) (DISA) has deployed the AtHoc IWSAlerts EMNS. The DISA deployed those solutions in order to safeguard and account for the 4,500 personnel that are working and stationed around the Ft. Meade, Maryland headquarters of the agency. The deployment means that AtHoc and DISA are only further strengthening a partnership that works well when it comes to mass notifications.
AtHoc has long been considered one of the top providers of mass notification systems for agencies that deal with the US military and government agencies. The mass notification system is currently working to protect more than two million personnel. These people are the ones who are being stationed at places like garrisons, installations and bases located around the globe.
"Today's U.S. military operations are global in nature and demand IT and networking capabilities that deliver next-generation crisis communications. DISA is the organization responsible for providing the requisite infrastructure and enterprise services to users like the Combatant Commanders, all branches of Military Services and Defense Agencies, the Office of the Secretary of Defense, and the Joint Staff," stated (Ret.) Army Colonel David Brown (News - Alert), Director of Army Operations for AtHoc.
"Our ever-expanding prevalence across the DoD is testament to both the strength and resilience of our platform and the focused impact our team puts forth every day to ensure our customers achieve their missions."
AtHoc has worked well with DISA because the company has managed to fully integrate with the existing IP network. DISA’s network works incredibly easily with the IWSAlerts platform. That platform consolidates a ton of different emergency communication capabilities. The integration is so clear and easy that notifications can be sent out to numerous agencies with the single press of a button. The notifications can be sent to pretty much any device the companies would want. Computers and tablets as well as smartphones can all be included on the notification network.
