Dubhe Beinhorn describes AtHoc, Inc, winner of GSN’s 2012 award for “Best Mass Notification Solutions,” as a company that operates in one sector only: critical communications for crisis management. But it is in this business in a big way, with 50% of the U.S. federal government using the AtHoc System, including U.S. Navy and U.S. Air Force, both on an enterprise level, the U.S. Patent Office and TSA.

Covia Labs received the award for “Best Interoperable First Responder Communications” in the 2012 Awards Program for its “Alert & Respond” software platform and application that provides voice/data interoperability across a variety of platforms ranging from smart phones to police and fire department radios, embedded devices and drones. The top two markets for the company, according to CEO David Kahn, are the military and public safety.

RedSeal Networks is both a Sponsor of the 2012 Awards Program and recipient of a Winner’s trophy in the IT Security Category of “Best Continuous Monitoring Solution”.

Vanguard Security Professionals has been a multiple Winner and Finalist in previous GSN Awards Programs and was named Winner in the 2012 category of “Best Intrusion Detection/Prevention Solution” and Finalist in the 2012 categories of “Best Identity Management Platform” and “Best Compliance/Vulnerability Assessment Solution.” Steven Ringelberg argues that new language is being used to describe the threat-scape, but many threats are the same as they have been for years.

TeleCommunication Systems (TCS), which entered its “Commercial Mobile Alerts System” in the 2012 Awards Program, was named a Finalist in the “Best Mass Notification Systems” category.
