The Leading Safety, Security & Emergency Management Solution for Universities

CriticalArc’s first customers were in the higher education market, so we understand you face some of the most complex, wide-ranging security challenges with large open campuses, multiple cities, thousands of students, faculty and staff. And when University administrators are expanding areas of responsibility and freezing budgets, safety and security leaders turn to technology like SafeZone® to act as a force multiplier.

Higher Ed Security Challenges


With the growth of internationalisation, the use of the SafeZone app outside of the UK is proving an invaluable management and safeguarding tool. Being able to contact users abroad and provide them with a comfort level of personal security is a major consideration and mitigation when managing international travel.
Denis Fowler, Director Health, Safety & Security Department
Staff and student well-being and safety is of the utmost importance at the University of Washington and a critical component of the Husky student experience. The SafeZone solution enables us to respond more effectively and efficiently to students and staff who need emergency support. We have been consistently impressed with the benefits SafeZone can deliver, along with its ease of use and deployment.
