Support All Devices and Ownership Models

While governments are making great strides in digital transformation, and leveraging “things” in the process, they’ve tended to adopt point solutions, or a patchwork approach, to secure these innovations. That must change if they want to save money, enhance services for citizens, and reinvent processes.

It supports Entrust Datacard for user authentication – the same credential management system trusted by governments and enterprises around the world.

Grand Chief, Mohawk Council of Kahnawake

We needed a technology partner to be just as flexible, agile, and innovative as our project was. We wanted to do extraordinary things out-of-the-box without having to invent a wheel. We looked for companies that could meet our rigorous demands, and found that with AtHoc.

Senior Technology Consultant, WA-COP

With AtHoc’s capabilities, we’re able to get alerts out much quicker than we used to and coordinate a far more effective response to emergencies. When it comes to incidents where lives are at stake, that’s a level of value you cannot truly quantify.
