Here is background to this release. The recent New York Times feature of FoneTrac is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to growing awareness of not only the need but also the opportunity of travel security apps. Many corporations, for example, send key personnel such as employees, executives, and VIPs overseas for assignments and many of these personnel bring along their spouses and children. Corporate types, unfortunately, make excellent targets for everything from terrorists to thieves, and everyone abroad is vulnerable to risks as mundane (and yet important) as medical emergencies or natural disasters. Nearly everyone has a smartphone, however, and the clever integration by FoneTrac of the mobile phone, push or pull alerts to or from the device, and back office support from GlobalSecur mean that travelers truly have an end-to-end solution. For this reason, not just journalists such as those at the New York Times are taking note of FoneTrac; so are major corporations and universities seeking to up their game vis-a-vis the cornucopia of threats that exist in foreign environments.
