Amika Mobile Announces Security Summit Award for Most Innovative Emergency Notification Solution
Ottawa, Ontario -(Marketwire)- Amika Mobile was selected as one of 2010's Most Innovative in the Category of Communications Interoperability & Hastily Formed Networks for emergency communications at the San Diego Security Summit. Judges included top-level officials from government, military, defence and first responder organizations, representing, NATO, NSA, TSA, TSWG, DRDC, US Navy, INSA, California Emergency Management, UCSD, San Diego Police Services, plus Port and Airport Authorities.
"Amika Mobile impressed our judges in the area of communication interoperability with their solution and its very innovative auto-discovery capability", said Michael Jones President of The Security Network.
"This is an incredible honour for Amika Mobile to be judged as most innovative with competing companies from the US, UK, Australia, New Zealand, and Europe", stated Amika Mobile CEO Dr. Sue Abu-Hakima.
The Amika Mobility Server ensures people are found in an emergency due to its unique auto-discovery capability, which finds anyone on the wired or wireless network even if they are not pre-registered in the database. Database pre-registration has been described as the Achilles' heel of emergency mass notification systems.
According to Gartner's February 2010 Market Scope report, the emergency mass notification market is growing rapidly - closing 2009 at $520 Million with a projected growth of 29% for 2010.
