San Francisco-based Dedrone, an airspace security company and developer of software to detect drones at critical infrastructure, has announced a new alliance with global technology integrator World Wide Technology (WWT).
By aligning with Dedrone’s platform, WWT will gain access to Dedrone’s software and will be able to provide customers with a product to further strengthen their cyber and physical security programs to include airspace security and anti-drone technology.
“Airspace security is a cutting-edge sector, and Dedrone is at the center of it,” says Jim Kavanaugh, CEO of WWT. “A big part of our job is exposing customers to innovative technology that’s disrupting the market, and that’s what we see in Dedrone.”
In addition to the alliance, the Dedrone drone detection solution will be featured in WWT’s Advanced Technology Center (ATC) at WWT’s St. Louis headquarters. The ATC is a collaborative ecosystem to design, build, educate, demonstrate and deploy technology products and integrated architectural solutions for WWT customers, partners and employees.
The ATC is made up of preconfigured components, workshops, advisory services and training sessions; all are available live or via an online portal to customers anywhere in the world. Dedrone customers can test any proposed deployment of their solution to arrive at the right configuration before it is installed – in turn, ensuring successful integration into an existing security program.
“The threat that drones pose to enterprises, financial institutions and data centers, as well as other organizations with critical infrastructure, is no longer a theory,” says Joerg Lamprecht, CEO and co-founder of Dedrone. “Malicious, terrorist and hacker drones are in our skies today and are a significant risk to the secure protection of data, as well as the infrastructure and people that protect it. WWT has always been the first to provide the most innovative technologies for their customers. Together, Dedrone and WWT provide the world’s most relevant public and private companies airspace protection.”
