Joint Solution is First Personal Panic Button and Security Service of Its Kind
NORWALK, Conn., June 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Defentect Group, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: DFTC), a developer and provider of rapid response software applications for safety and security purposes, is pleased to announce that the Company has joined forces with MayDay360, LLC, a corporation formed by Manhattan based Investigative Management Group and Beth Holloway, mother of Natalee Holloway who disappeared in Aruba in 2005.
Leveraging Defentect's communications technology and SmartPhone application, DefenCall, Defentect and MayDay360, have created a unique personal security and emergency response solution. DefenCall is the first program for a SmartPhone that enables a user to broadcast his or her location in the event of an emergency. When the user presses the MayDay360 panic button, the user's geospatial coordinates and other pertinent information are sent to Defentect's proprietary DM3™ response system and relayed to MayDay360. A phone call is automatically placed from the user's SmartPhone to MayDay360's support team, allowing the user to speak with someone who can provide assistance. MayDay360 is accessible worldwide; so no matter where a user is, the potentially life-saving information will reach first responders so that action can be taken within seconds.
James Ackerly, CEO of Defentect Group, Inc., commented on the agreement by saying, "Partnering with MayDay360 is a perfect example of how our messaging system can facilitate a timely response to a wide variety of situations. Our software platform combined with MayDay360's expertise and resources in this market has produced a security service that will offer priceless peace of mind to users and their families. We are excited by the potential that this opportunity holds for us both."
"We are pleased with the way that Defentect's technology brings to life our concept of providing security assistance quickly and from anywhere in the world," stated Ross Thompson, founder of MayDay360, LLC. "This agreement brings us another step closer to providing as many people as possible with the resources that they need to get help fast in a crisis situation."
Beth Holloway, Executive Director of the Natalee Holloway Resource Center and principal of MayDay360 reiterated, "I have dedicated my life to the protection of traveling young people and this alliance between Defentect and MayDay360 gives us all an important tool with which to accomplish that."
