Halo Solutions, a safety and security communications specialist, is teaming up with Horus Security, a global intelligence expert. Together the companies plan to aid venues in their response to organised/violent crime, terrorism, extremism and strategic protest, as well as standard health and safety threats.
Horus delivers bespoke intelligence-led services and security solutions via its global team of experienced multilingual researchers, analysts and investigators. Halo Solutions said the partnership would see the Halo System become the first C3i platform on the market with a direct feed to real-time information from a bank of intelligence experts. The system is designed to streamline bio-security, counter-terrorism, health and safety, communications and tasking for an infinite range of incidents and procedures.
“At Halo, we believe the best decisions are made when people have the best information and intelligence to base them on,” said Lloyd Major, CEO and co-founder of Halo Solutions. “This makes Horus a natural fit for us as we expand into new markets. Downstream, as businesses receive intelligence products, the Halo System is far superior to email for managing real-time decision-making as strategic, tactical and operational managers implement their action plans.”
“During my policing career, I have had an awareness of Horus going back to 2012,” continued Major. “I have regularly observed, from the outside, the positive difference the team can make to their clients’ lives and businesses. Providing reassurance, context, expert advice and information on a broad range of subjects, their professional ethics are second to none and I’ve always been impressed with their dedication to helping others. They are the best at what they do and this is a great partnership for both companies.”
This is the Halo System’s third new integration to launch so far in 2021, and Halo Solutions said many more are to come.
“The partnership between Horus and Halo will aim to combine our many years of experience and intelligent security solutions to guide businesses, organisations and their associated projects through a new era of security requirements at large-scale events,” said Jonathan Whiteley, managing director at Horus. “We see the Halo platform as being the most reliable and efficient solution to deliver our intelligence product.”
Halo Solutions said the Halo System has so far kept millions of event-goers safe, reduced insurance premiums and other costs as well as been credited with saving lives at carnivals, marathons and skiing events across Europe since its inception. The three-part system includes a mobile app. The system can provide digital, tamper-proof logs for use as evidence in investigations.
