Apr 08, 2024

AUSTIN, April 8, 2024 – Ontic, a software provider delivering Connected Intelligence to unify how security professionals manage physical threats, mitigate risks, and strengthen businesses, today announced a partnership with AlertMedia, a leading provider of threat intelligence, emergency communication, and travel risk management solutions. The agreement gives security teams a comprehensive technology solution, integrating AlertMedia’s emergency communication capabilities into the Ontic Platform. The partnership adds to the more than 60 integrations within Ontic’s Connected Ecosystem Program.

“Combining AlertMedia’s multichannel, two-way communication capabilities with the Ontic Platform gives corporate security teams the consolidated solution they need to be operational and cost-effective during a time of increasing and wide-ranging risks,” said Manish Mehta, Chief Product Officer, Ontic. “This partnership represents a significant step forward, enabling us to broaden our offerings and better address our clients’ demands for enhanced situational awareness and seamless emergency communication—all within a connected platform.”

Notifying employees of critical information is key to keeping people and organizations safe. This partnership provides Ontic and AlertMedia clients with seamless connectivity and fast, reliable communication to inform the right people at the right time. By leveraging AlertMedia in the Ontic Platform, users can:

  • Access human-vetted intelligence about potential risks near employees, facilities, and company assets
  • Create a notification from any Ontic signal to inform specific user groups or individuals
  • Select from multiple communication channels, including text, email, voice, WhatsApp, desktop alerts, and in-app messaging
  • Connect situational awareness and emergency communication to intelligence feeds and investigations

“Unlike legacy systems that lack agility, are too complex, and take months to deploy, both AlertMedia and Ontic are easy to use and can be implemented quickly,” said Christopher Kenessey, CEO of AlertMedia. “AlertMedia’s emergency communication solution is designed to improve employee safety, mitigate loss, and ensure business continuity during an emergency when every second counts. When paired with Ontic’s investigations and intelligence capabilities and end-to-end workflows, organizations can make more informed decisions and take action when potential threats arise.”

“As users of both solutions, it was exciting for us to see them come together to help streamline our efforts,” said John Robert, Director, Global Intelligence & Protection Center at Dow. “Given the constantly evolving threat landscape, it’s critical to have mass notifications integrated within the same platform where we manage our intelligence feeds and conduct investigations. It saves us valuable time and resources. In our field, where every second counts, that’s a game-changer.”

Ontic users can purchase AlertMedia’s emergency communication and vetted intelligence solutions for use within the Ontic Platform, and mutual clients of both companies can purchase the integration between their existing AlertMedia products and the Ontic Platform.
