Helios and Matheson Analytics Inc. and RedZone Map™ Launch Zone Intelligence™
Data-Driven Technology to Enhance Global Security for Individuals and Organizations
MIAMI & NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Helios and Matheson Analytics Inc. (NASDAQ: HMNY) and RedZone, creator of the RedZone Map™ navigation app, a tool for situational awareness and enhancement of personal safety, announced today the launch of Zone Intelligence™, a new global security concierge for high net worth individuals, their families and corporations.
Zone Intelligence™ seeks to enhance the personal safety of its clientele using threat mapping, geospatial awareness, geofencing and alerts based on client proximity to terror, crime and other threats. Zone Intelligence™ will analyze the data collected in real-time, provide real-time threat intelligence for both domestic and international travel, and advise clients on where and when to travel and when to leave.
“Zone Intelligence™ is the preventative and proactive solution for secure travel in an increasingly threat-filled world,” said HMNY CEO Ted Farnsworth. “When a client enlists Zone Intelligence™, we will be with them, not only with human intelligence on the ground, but also with our big data analytics and real-time intel of the present threats. We’re there with geofencing if the child of a high net worth individual, quite literally, pushes boundaries; we’re there if a corporation has executives doing business in a dangerous area and needs them extracted.”
The launch of Zone Intelligence™ follows in the footsteps of RedZone Map™, which guides users to their destinations along the safest routes based on crime data – which the app tracks in real time. RedZone plans to make Zone Intelligence™ the premier global security service and use its data-driven software to provide the most rigorous security enhancement possible for its clients.
“The key factor in effective global safety is proper security proportionate to the risk – which is heightened when protecting corporations and high net worth individuals,” said renowned global security expert Paul Viollis, CEO of Viollis Group International. “A company is only as good as its intel – and the reliability of that intel is paramount. Zone Intelligence™ can provide its clients with the most reliable data in real time, helping those clients to make the best decisions for their individual and corporate safety.”
Zone Intelligence™ expands HMNY’s preventative crime and terrorism technology offerings, which include technology of Israeli facial recognition company IsItYou and Israel-based technology company Trendit Ltd.
