SAN MATEO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/05/12 --  AtHoc, Inc.
(www.athoc.com), the pioneer and leader in network-centric emergency
mass notification systems (EMNS), today announced that the United
States Marine Corps (USMC) has standardized enterprise-wide on the
AtHoc emergency communications platform. The AtHoc-based capability
will be deployed worldwide to protect 225,000 active duty Marines and
civilians across all Marine Corps bases, camps, depots, and stations. 
The AtHoc system leverages the Marine Corp's existing IP network for
a unified, multimodal private-cloud mass notification solution.
AtHoc's solution will alert personnel across the USMC's entire
enterprise through multiple redundant personal and mass communication
devices including networked desktop alerts, mobile phones, landline
phones, Giant Voice/public address systems and social networks. HP
and AtHoc will collaborate to deploy this system for all USMC
locations globally.  
"The U.S. Marine Corps now joins the vast majority of Defense and
Homeland Security agencies in selecting AtHoc as the system of choice
for their enterprise-wide emergency communication and mass
notification requirements," said AtHoc President and CEO Guy Miasnik.
"Furthermore, the USMC's deployment strengthens the DoD's overall
readiness to meet the mass notification system requirements laid out
by the Secretary of Defense (SECDEF) for full operational compliance
by the January 2014 deadline."
