About the software

SafeZone Desktop is a personal security application that makes it easy for you to alert Security. There's also a mobile phone app. When an incident occurs, a SafeZone app user can send a real-time geo-located alert to the whole response team. If working after hours, users can choose to Check-In for maximum protection from the Security team.
