G4S Technology Gains DHS Approval

April 25, 2012  | 

G4S Technology's physical and electronic security solutions were again "designated" and "certified" as Qualified Anti-Terrorism Technology (QATT) by the United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS) under the Support Anti-terrorism by Fostering Effective Technologies Act of 2002 (the SAFETY Act), the company has announced.

G4S Technology (formerly Adesta) was one of the first systems integrators to receive this prominent certification and designation for its design, engineering, construction, integration, maintenance, and training services, according to the company.

As a global systems integration company, G4S Technology designs and installs physical and electronic security solutions for critical infrastructure. The SAFETY Act Certification and Designation renewal will continue to provide G4S Technology and its customers significant liability protections.

"G4S Technology is honored to once again receive full SAFETY Act approval from the Department of Homeland Security," said Bob Sommerfeld, president of G4S Technology. "Meeting the requirements of this rigorous certification and designation process is a direct and positive reflection of the quality of service and impressive experience and expertise of G4S Technology and our employees."

The SAFETY Act was created in response to the potentially crushing liability suits that were filed after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. Congress, understanding that the existence of such lawsuits could keep important anti-terror services and technologies out of the hands of the federal government, port authorities, commercial customers, and others, created the system of liability protections offered by the SAFETY Act as an incentive for companies to buy and sell effective anti-terror goods and services, according to G4S.
