Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority Selects AtHoc for Business Continuity and Crisis Communication
Nov 3 15
BlackBerry Limited announced that Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) has selected AtHoc, a division of BlackBerry, for its new highly secure alerting and crisis communication system. WMATA's primary objective for this stage of deployment within the IT organization is to be able to distribute certain actionable information to and from the Information Technology's (IT) Metro Enterprise Monitoring Center (MEMC), Helpdesk and Customer Services sections within the Office of Data Center and Infrastructure (DCI). The new AtHoc system enhances how alerts and critical events are shared with key staff members, on call personnel and decision makers. Protecting Personally Identifiable Information (PII) was a critical requirement, which AtHoc's highly secure infrastructure and technology was able to deliver. Serving the Washington Metropolitan area, WMATA must coordinate with a number of internal departments and external agencies in times of crisis. Leveraging this deployment, WMATA will use AtHoc Connect(TM), AtHoc's platform for secure interoperable crisis communication to create secure, unified crisis communication network that enables rapid communication between internal teams, first responders, local facilities, and key decision makers. Such information sharing includes cross-agency exchange of messages results in improved situational awareness and rapid coordinated response.
St. Louis County Launches AtHoc Networked Crisis Communication Platform
Oct 19 15
BlackBerry Limited announced that St. Louis County Emergency Management selected AtHoc to provide a highly secure alerting and personnel accountability solution. The selection and deployment of the AtHoc solution was made in preparation for the one-year anniversary of the shooting and consequent demonstrations that gripped the streets of Ferguson in August 2014. The system was deployed rapidly and was in operation on August 1, 2015. The County's selection and implementation of AtHoc paid off immediately as the County Executive declared a state of emergency when gunfire erupted on the fringes of demonstrations commemorating the anniversary weekend in August 2015. The County immediately used the AtHoc system to actively communicate and coordinate with first responders dealing with vandalism, looting, arson and other acts of civil disobedience or confrontations with police. The selection of AtHoc was led by the Emergency Management team in the St. Louis County police department under the guidance of Paul Dupuis, Emergency Management Specialist.

AtHoc looks forward to building a model of innovation for others based on this vision.
