Critical messaging specialist Secapp has announced its membership of TCCA.
The company, which is based in Finland, develops and manages the eponymous Secapp critical communications and alerting software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform. The solution is designed for use in emergency and disaster situations.
According to a statement, Secapp is designed for “improving safety, managing infrastructure and processes, and keeping people informed. It works by combining all commercial communications channels – apps, SMS, automated calls, email -, and authority communication [TETRA] channels into one solution. This enables the broadcast of mass notifications, alerts to individuals and teams, as well as collection and sharing of critical data.”
Head of partnerships at Secapp, Timo Harju, said: “We have designed Secapp with the emphasis on reliability and security, both essential foundations of critical communications. The rapid dissemination of information in a crisis situation is essential, and in joining TCCA we look forward to becoming further integrated into the critical communications ecosystem that supports first responders and critical users around the world.”
TCCA chief executive, Kevin Graham, said: “Secure messaging technology is increasingly in demand to help individuals and communities in a crisis situation, to maintain essential services and to ensure critical information is accessible.
“As well as first responders, organisations such as hospitals, public authorities and key industries must be kept informed so they can operate as normally as possible to help mitigate the crisis. Secapp has had considerable success in many sectors, and we are very pleased to welcome the company as a new TCCA member.”
