Evolv Technology Awarded SAFETY Act Designation for Evolv Edge™
Evolv Technology today announced Evolv Edge™, its people screening system that detects weapons and bombs, has achieved the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) SAFETY Act Designation. Following a rigorous application and due diligence process by DHS, the Evolv Edge is now a Qualified Anti-Terrorism Technology (QATT).
Part of the Homeland Security Act of 2002, Congress enacted the Support Anti-Terrorism by Fostering Effective Technologies Act (SAFETY Act) to provide incentives for the development and deployment of anti-terrorism technologies. The Act’s purpose is to ensure the threat of liability does not deter any likely manufacturers or sellers of effective anti-terrorism technologies from developing or commercializing technologies that can save lives. To obtain the SAFETY Act Designation involved comprehensive review of the product, its use as well as experience which includes a review of test results; operational, manufacturing and quality assurance practices and effectiveness; and feedback from customers.
“The SAFETY Act Designation mitigates the impact of terrorism related lawsuits, allowing our customers to focus on what’s most important: providing a seamless experience for their visitors and employees that helps keep them safe,” said Mike Ellenbogen, CEO at Evolv Technology. “This Designation provides further validation and reassurance for Evolv Edge customers that the technology can be used effectively for its intended purpose of detecting and preventing physical security threats – ultimately helping people feel safer in places they visit.”
Evolve Technologies Corporation launched in 2013, has four distinct divisions, each is inspired by the same commitment; to the health of our environment; to well-being of community members; and to the safety of professionals who serve the public good. Evolve understands the diversity of need within the fields of expertise we serve.
