Kiana Featured in Gartner’s Use of Location Services to Mitigate COVID-19 Spread

23 April, 2020 |

Sunnyvale, Calif. – April 15, 2020 –Kiana Analytics, Inc., the IoPSec™ solutions company that provides proximity and physical security services to organizations worldwide, today announced its new COVID-19 Rapid Containment program reducing employee health risks after COVID-19.

Kiana also announces today it’s been selected as a representative vendor in the Gartner “CIO Guide: How Location Services Can Help Mitigate COVID-19 Spread” report. Many governments are focusing on population confinement as a way to stop COVID-19 propagation, but often with slow progress. CIOs can use this research to explain how location-based technologies can be leveraged to track virus spread, inform the population and raise enforcement measures.

Kiana was the only US company highlighted in this report.

Kiana’s solution uses real-time data collected from mobile and WiFi signatures that identify presence and movement of people based on their mobile phones and presence on WiFi access points. It analyzes the social transmission vectors of the Coronavirus – or any other communicable disease – in facilities such as corporate buildings, campuses, military bases and care facilities – anywhere WiFi can be made available to mitigate the spread of the virus.  Kiana’s real-time contact tracing containment system uses device-based detection and location-based analytics to help stop the spread of virus. It leverages existing infrastructure, and no new equipment needs to be installed.

“Kiana is dedicated to expanding the boundaries of presence analytics, expanding its site management solution to also mitigate COVID-19 spread at enterprise buildings,” said Nader Fathi, CEO at Kiana Analytics. “Gartner’s recognition of Kiana as a representative vendor helps establish our company as a thought leader in the industry. With advanced IoT technology, advanced analytics and actionable insights, we can win against COVID-19 and other pandemics in the future.”
