Patriot One Technologies Inc., (OTCQX: PTOTF) (TSX-V: PAT), developer of the revolutionary PATSCAN concealed weapons detection system, has been invited to partner with Cisco Systems (NASDAQ: CSCO) on its global innovation program. The partnership aims to assist effective commercial deployment of the PATSCAN family of threat detection solutions.
Cisco Systems’ innovation program includes a variety of engagement opportunities. The program will provide co-innovation and co-creation efforts for the integration of Patriot One’s PATSCAN threat detection solutions alongside Cisco security and network solutions, including framework architecture, installation, and data management. The proposed efforts target joint customer presentations leading to planning and implementation of integrated threat detection and security solutions with end-clients. In addition, Patriot One will acquire access to Cisco’s global network, potentially multiplying deployment of its PATSCAN family of threat detection solutions.
“We are very excited to partner with Cisco Systems on its innovation program, as it will accelerate our efforts to bring much needed threat detection solutions to the marketplace,” expressed Martin Cronin, CEO and President of Patriot One. “Our company’s vision is to create a world safer from acts of violence on our global citizens. This partnership will play a key part in our mission to be the foremost proponent and provider of innovative threat detection and counter terrorism solutions and services for public safety.”
Patriot One’s partnership with Cisco is underway. Engineers from both companies have been reviewing the PATSCAN threat detection solutions and evaluating ways to advance framework architecture and data management. In addition, last week, Patriot One engineers joined other Cisco partners to showcase the company’s PATSCAN family of threat detection solutions to Cisco’s largest clients and partners. The Patriot One showcase was part of the annual 2018 Cisco Connect Conference, held at the Toronto Congress Centre. Other programs where Patriot One will present and demonstrate its PATSCAN family of threat solutions to Cisco’s global network and client base include Cisco’s Global Partner Summits, which take place around the world including Las Vegas, Barcelona and Toronto.
As referenced in its mission, Patriot One looks to deliver a layered, multi-sensor approach to threat detection to secure public and private spaces. From the parking lot to inside a building, Patriot One’s goal is to help today’s security personnel Deter, Detect & Defend as required. The partnership with Cisco will directly aid the Company in achieving this mission globally.
