New York City, ISC East, Nov. 17, 2018 — Cloudastructure today announced it is the recipient of the 2021 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Award from American Security Today for its AI surveillance solution.
American Security Today’s Annual ‘ASTORS’ Awards is the preeminent U.S. Homeland Security Awards Program, and today in its Sixth Year, continues to recognize industry leaders of Physical and Border Security, Cybersecurity, Emergency Preparedness - Management and Response, Law Enforcement, First Responders, as well as federal, state and municipal government agencies in the acknowledgment of their outstanding efforts to Keep our Nation Secure.
An exclusive event featured on the opening day of ISC East the Northeast's largest security industry event, and the inaugural Natural Disaster and Emergency Management (NDEM) Expo, nearly two hundred representatives of law enforcement, public safety, and industry leaders came together to honor the selfless service of those who stand on the front lines, and those who stand beside them - providing the capabilities and technologies to create a safer world for generations to come.
The United States was forever changed 20 years ago on September 11th, and we were fortunate to have many of those who responded join us at the 2021 ‘ASTORS’ Awards Presentation Luncheon.
In the days that followed 9/11, the critical needs of protecting our country catapulted us into New and Innovative ways to secure our homeland - which is how many of the agencies and enterprise organizations that are today ‘ASTORS’ Awards Champions, came into being.
This year marks the 20th anniversary of Homeland Security as we know it today, including the 20th anniversary of the Transportation Security Administration, and we gathered to celebrate new ways of thinking about responsibility, new legislation, and comprehensive collaborations between private and public sectors that have led to developing intelligence and technologies which serve to protect our nation.
Transportation Security Administration (TSA) Administer David Pekoske joined AST and spoke to attendees who traveled from across the United States and abroad to participate, on the topics of his efforts to ensure smooth and timely holiday season traveling, COVID-19 mandatory vaccinations, how they are addressing the recent increase in inflight passenger disturbances, as well as the overall critical missions of the TSA, and innovative new approaches his administration has undertaken since taking office.
Former Police Commissioner William Bratton of the NYPD, the BPD, and former Chief of the LAPD was also live at the event, meeting with attendees and signing complimentary copies of his latest work ‘The Profession: A Memoir of Community, Race, and the Arc of Policing in America,’ thanks to the generosity of our 2021 ‘ASTORS’ Awards Sponsors AMAROK, ATI Systems, Attivo Networks, Automatic Systems of America, Fortior Solutions, and SIMS Software.
The Annual ‘ASTORS’ Awards Program is specifically designed to honor distinguished government and vendor solutions that deliver enhanced value, benefit, and intelligence to end-users in a variety of government, homeland security, enterprise, and public safety vertical markets.
“‘ASTORS’ nominations are evaluated on their technical innovation, interoperability, specific impact within the category, overall impact to the industry, relatability to other industry technologies, and application feasibility outside of the industry,” said AST’s Publisher, Michael J. Madsen.
