SAN MATEO, Calif. March 15, 2012 - AtHoc, Inc. (www.athoc.com), the pioneer and leader in network-centric emergency mass notification systems (EMNS), today announced that Gartner, Inc. has positioned AtHoc in the “Leaders” quadrant of the Gartner “Magic Quadrant for U.S. Emergency/Mass Notification Services” (1). The report, published March 8, 2012, ranks AtHoc as a leader for its ability to execute, which it defines as “A vendor's ability to provide to the market an EMNS product that meets customer feature/function capability requirements, as well as their ability to deliver and service the product with a high level of service guarantee and customer support.”

Attesting to its leadership, AtHoc is the number one provider of unified network-centric emergency mass notification systems to the U.S. federal government, protecting more than two million military, homeland security and federal government personnel at thousands of locations worldwide.  AtHoc’s customers include Microsoft, Boeing, UCLA, Department of Veterans Affairs, Baylor Medical, Kaiser Hospital, Coast Guard, TSA, Pentagon, Navy, Air Force, Army, Marines, USDA, and many more.

In the final analysis, Gartner positioned AtHoc in the Leaders quadrant of the report based on a complex set of evaluation criteria. The Magic Quadrant for Emergency/Mass Notification Services states that, “Leaders have products that work well for Gartner clients in midsize and large deployments. They excel in the combination of market understanding, product features and functions, and overall viability as a firm. Their EMNS products are well-known to clients, and are frequently found on RFP shortlists, have presence at tradeshows, publish market-related white papers and conduct webinars.”

“At AtHoc, our unified EMNS has been developed, refined, tested and proven over the years by the most demanding customer in the world—the United States federal government, including every branch of U.S. Armed Forces and major Homeland Security agencies. The knowledge and advanced technologies garnered from that experience now benefits our diverse roster of blue chip customers across other market verticals,” said Guy Miasnik, AtHoc President and CEO. “We believe our proven track record deploying the market’s only truly integrated, enterprise-class emergency mass notification platform to protect personnel under the most extreme emergency conditions is clearly deserving of Gartner’s assessment of AtHoc as a leader in its category.”
