International collaboration forms new site monitoring business

24 April 2018

Following the merging of four businesses, the creation of the Netwatch Group has been announced to provide international site monitoring services.

No financial details were included in the announcement and the new company's headquarters will be based in Carlow, Ireland.

The companies involved include UK-based Onwatch Multifire, Netwatch in Ireland, along with CalAtlantic and National Monitoring Center (NMC), both based in the United States (US).

Proactive visual monitoring services will be provided to sites in the US, UK, Europe, Middle East and Africa to all types of facilities.

In addition to its Ireland HQ, the group will also have UK offices in East Sussex and a central US base in Lake Forest, California and satellite offices in Boston, New Jersey, Dallas, Houston and Chicago.

Access to a network of six advanced global monitoring centres will be a feature of the new business, provided by the Netwatch CRATOS technology platform.

The newly-created group will be led by chief executive officer David Walsh, reported to be an early pioneer of proactive visual monitoring.

"There is increased demand for visual monitoring from enterprise customers, driven by the continuing evolution of technology and advances such as AI, deep learning, 5G and the Internet of Things (ioT)," said Mr Walsh.

He stated that the joining of the four companies meant that services were "immediately" available to "clients who rely on us to protect lives, assets and business operations".
