Real-Time Technology Group Earns DHS Safety Act Designation
Real-Time Technology Group (RTTG), a provider of secure and hosted Identity and Risk Management solutions, is proud to announce that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has awarded its Real-Time Verification (RTV) technology with SAFETY ACT Designation. This designation program was established to reward invention and commercialization of anti-terrorism technologies.
RTTG received DHS SAFETY ACT protections for RTV as a Qualified Anti-Terrorism Technology (QATT) following a rigorous review and evaluation process. The Secure Worker Access Consortium (SWAC), driven by RTTG's RTV technology platform, was one of the key considerations in this review process. SWAC is a unique Trusted Community of contractors that support the construction and maintenance of the World Trade Center complex and NY-metro region’s critical transportation infrastructure. This innovative and secure information-sharing program helps to ensure that workers who access sensitive facilities are known, safe, and threat-free.
Specifically, RTV is a web-based Software-as-a-Service ("SaaS") application that provides comprehensive personnel assurance through the secure collection and audited need-to-know sharing of sensitive personal information. The technology is designed to assist Risk Managers in evaluating and assuring employee and contractor compliance with local safety and security procedures. RTV supports the following secure processes: Online Enrollment, Positive Identity Verification (including document validation), Threat Screening and Monitoring, Compliance Measurement, and Credential Issuance and Authentication. RTV’s real-time data analysis delivers continuous evaluation of compliance criteria, including Terrorist Watch Lists, civil and criminal Public Record Alerts, and continuing education requirements.
“This prestigious designation assures our clients that DHS has thoroughly reviewed our technology and hosting infrastructure, and deemed that it meets the high standards required as a designated Qualified Anti-Terrorism Technology,” stated Daniel Krantz, managing director and CEO of Real-Time Technology Group.
“The result of more than 15 years of hard work, it’s very rewarding for our team to receive this recognition,” Krantz continued. “We all come to work knowing that we contribute to our nation’s safety and security. Our office features many 9/11 reminders: the Flag of Honor, WTC Memorial artwork, and a treasured piece of steel from WTC given to us in appreciation of our charitable efforts on behalf of The Feal Good Foundation. We’re now leveraging expertise gained in critical infrastructure protection to benefit all kinds of sensitive facilities and public landmarks. And we’re helping First Responders assure the proper training and optimal allocation of specialized resources. It's a great honor to have earned this DHS distinction, and a privilege to lead our team in providing world-class Anti-terrorism and Emergency Preparedness and Response technologies."
