Sadara Chemical deploys AtHoc for crisis communication solution

Sadara Chemical Company has deployed AtHoc’s Networked Crisis Communication solution to protect chemical complex in Jubail Industrial City, Saudi Arabia.

The AtHoc system securely delivers physical and cyber security alerts to all personnel through a fully integrated crisis communications system.

According to AtHoc, it has helped the Sadara Security Operations Center to send critical alerts instantaneously via IPTV, networked PC desktop pop-up alerts, push-to-talk radios, SMS text messaging, email and to other communications assets throughout the complex.

Additionally, Sadara can now reach and account for personnel and visitors across a vast geographic area in the event of threats like severe weather hazards, man-made or cyber related.
