CriticalArc is a leading technology innovator, designing and developing the distributed command and control solution, SafeZone, which is revolutionising the way organisations manage safety and security operations.

Founded in 2011 in Australia, CriticalArc combined a passion for high-performance cloud computing with a deep understanding of security systems, to develop technology that challenges the traditional approach to securing multi- site and dispersed facilities. The goal was to strengthen and streamline the capacity of organisations to respond to threats and incidents without adding to expensive fixed security infrastructure.
Recognising an over reliance on electronic security systems, the CriticalArc team saw an opportunity to leverage the ubiquity of cloud networks and mobile devices to empower organisations’ most important resource – its people. The mission was to deliver security and safety personnel the timely and accurate information they need to respond to any incident.
The result is SafeZone, CriticalArc’s game-changing solution for security and safety across dispersed campuses and multi-site organisations. SafeZone is a high-performance cloud service that delivers distributed command and control to security coordinators and real-time situational awareness to responders in the field, transforming their capacity to respond in any situation. SafeZone empowers first responders through real time shared location information and incident details sent simultaneously to the control- room and common off-the-shelf mobile devices in the field.
By providing the right information at the right time to staff in any location, SafeZone streamlines day-to-day safety and security operations and supports the best incident outcomes – faster, across multiple sites that may be scattered around the globe or facilities that may be dispersed through densely populated city environments.
Our friends at Texas A&M University-San Antonio (Chief Ron Davidson and Deputy Chief Roger Stearns) were featured in a local news story discussing their adoption of the SafeZone indoor positioning system, which gives campus public safety and security personnel a three-dimensional view of multi-story buildings on campus.
