Universities don’t want to ask people to carry an extra device to ensure they get any emergency communications: you need to find an easy-to-deploy solution which integrates with what staff and students already have in their hands – mobiles and laptops.
John Durbridge Campus Security Manager, Property from Sydney’s Macquarie University, says: “Knowing that the AtHoc solution we have in place is used by US and Australian Defence Forces gives us peace of mind, but better still, we found the ease of deployment, ongoing management, scalability and multi-platform reach enables the university to keep our staff and students safe – 24/7”.
Eddie Herchert, Systems Engineer, Pentagon Force Protection Agency, says: “BlackBerry AtHoc enhances our capability, visibility, and scalability and they never sacrifice security. The software is solid. The system is there and ready to expand as needed.”
