Chatham, NJ (PRWEB) February 04, 2013

Desktop Alert Inc., the leader and pioneer of 'less than one minute' notification to the U.S. Army worldwide today announced that the Department of Army has issued the company an Authority-To-Operate on U.S. Army networks worldwide for Version 5 of the companies award winning mass notification platform.

"We are pleased with this new accreditation. Our notification platform has taken the leap from an approved U.S. Army application to that of an approved U.S. Army system. In the Department of Defense, system accreditation is an arduous and lengthy process whereby only a select few systems are capable of passing the rigorous standards and testing requirements. This accreditation process took well over one year. We are now the only certified IP-based notification platform in the Army for less than one minute notification. When lives are at stake, seconds count", said Howard Ryan, Founder Desktop Alert Inc.

U.S. Army Wide Area Alert Networks (WAAN) are one of the principal tools Army installations utilize to alert personnel to destructive weather hazards, emergencies, severe traffic conditions, force protection condition (FPCON) changes, etc., both during and after working hours.

"Desktop Alert guarantees our military clientele a 100% SLA 24/7/365; if any maintenance is being done, the service would automatically fall-over to back-up servers and tele-serve dialers” Ryan added.
