WHY WE MATTER
Verified Threat Intelligence Directly from the Source
The public is on watch. Every year 240 million calls are made to 911. Within minutes, first responders are dispatched to gather on-scene details. Further resources may be deployed, leading to resolution.
Beakon monitors police radio and turns 911 radio transmissions into actionable threat intelligence in seconds.
Traditional threat intelligence sources trade reliability for speed
The media is a reputable source of information, but they can take hours to report events.
Social media is rife with inaccuracies and a bad actor can easily generate a series of tweets to spoof an active shooter situation.
Fast and unreliable — or slow and trustworthy. These have been the choices until now.
