The risk-management firm iJET International has been rebranded as WorldAware. The change is motivated in part by iJET's recent acquisitions of red24, which specializes in crisis-management assistance, and Prescient Traveler, an incident-reporting solution. The companies' combined services will be integrated under the WorldAware name, focused on helping clients and partners around the world effectively manage security and the safety of their people, facilities and businesses.
"WorldAware is heading in an exciting new direction as we continue to grow and innovate the best solutions for our clients," said WorldAware president Bruce McIndoe. "Today's leaders want to partner with a risk-management company that has a nuanced worldview and teams of forward-leaning experts standing at attention around the globe. WorldAware has had these capabilities for two decades, and our new brand reflects that."
Among the services offered by the company are integrated risk and travel risk-management planning and training, risk and threat awareness through regular intelligence alerts and reports, and global response and assistance in the event of emergencies. Their areas of monitoring and risk analysis include health, kidnapping, terrorism, environment, transportation and geopolitics.
WorldAware operates out of Annapolis, Md.; London; Cape Town, South Africa; and Singapore. The full WorldAware team is comprised of more than 130 intelligence and security experts, who monitor more than 21,000 sources in more than 25 languages.
