Lansing, MI and Richmond, VA – May 5, 2015 – IDV Solutions, LLC and Sea Island Software, Inc. today announced that the companies have formed a technical partnership and completed an integration of Sea Island’s HurricaneMapping.com storm tracking data with IDV Solutions' Visual Command Center® enterprise risk visualization (ERV) platform.
The combined technologies provide enterprise security teams with real-time, worldwide tracking and alerting for hurricanes, tropical storms, and typhoons, enabling them to assess and mitigate the risk to employees, facilities, and operations.
For National Hurricane Preparedness Week, the companies will host a webinar at 1 p.m. EST on Wednesday, May 27 on the forecast for the 2015 hurricane season, plus information about the various tropical cyclone seasons and how storm data is tracked and used by organizations.

Visual Command Center helps organizations take command of risk by providing a real-time, common operating picture of their personnel and operations in relation to potential threats. It unites information on global sources of risk, like weather, terrorism, and natural disasters, with data from an organization's internal data stores and physical security systems, visualizing the consolidated information on an interactive map and timeline. When a risk is detected near an asset or employee location, Visual Command Center automatically generates an alert and provides tools that enable security operators to assess and mitigate the threat.
The HurricaneMapping.com service collects hurricane, tropical storm, and typhoon advisories within minutes of their issuance. It combines and normalizes advisories from the U.S. National Hurricane Center, the Central Pacific Hurricane Center, and the Joint Typhoon Warning Center for total global coverage.
When connected to the HurricaneMapping.com service, Visual Command Center visualizes current and forecast storm locations and directions, wind speed swaths, advisories, and zones of hurricane, typhoon or tropical storm risk. It provides organizations with up-to-date risk assessments for all active storms, and alerts them when their assets may be threatened.
“Hurricanes, tropical storms, and typhoons are a major threat to life and property. Connecting Visual Command Center to HurricaneMapping.com offers organizations the most complete and timely information on which to base critical decisions to protect their people and facilities,” said George Siegle, Director of Product Management, IDV Solutions.
“We’re very pleased to partner with IDV Solutions to bring HurricaneMapping.com’s robust tropical storm data into Visual Command Center,” said Karen Townsend, President, Sea Island Software. “Visualization of tropical storm data in the context of a company’s facilities, employees, travelers, and supply chain routes is critical to mitigating risk from these powerful storms.”
