T&M Protection Resources in Marketing Alliance with Rontal

Partnership strengthens T&M’s expanding portfolio of security capabilities

May 05, 2008

New York, NY — May 5, 2008 — T&M Protection Resources announced that it has entered into a marketing alliance with Rontal USA, an affiliate of Israeli-based Rontal Engineering Applications Ltd (“Rontal”), to jointly market Rontal’s advanced incident management system, SimGuard. Founded by former Israeli Air Force pilots, Rontal developed SimGuard as a comprehensive command and control system adapting today’s cockpit display technology to maximize actionable information from existing security systems for mitigating incidents and thus, reducing the threats to business continuity.

“The alliance with Rontal and its SimGuard platform further strengthens T&M’s capabilities as a premium provider of solutions-based security and investigative services," said Robert Tucker, Chairman and CEO of T&M Protection Resources. “Rontal’s technological achievement with SimGuard represents an important industry breakthrough, and will bring a transformational change to the effectiveness of both security planning and operational systems command management,” Tucker added.

For security planning, SimGuard’s 3D displays offer security and risk managers a dynamic way to evaluate and test the effectiveness of deployed systems and protocols by presenting and testing various scenarios in either virtual and/or real modes. Security designs can be developed and evaluated even at the pre-architectural stage – yielding potentially significant cost savings for security and life safety systems. For operational security, the overlay of SimGuard’s incident management platform onto existing command and control systems enhances their effectiveness by giving real-time actionable information with predefined solutions for operators, security managers and executive management. This information management approach enables the enhancement of the security staff in preparedness and training and may also provide opportunities for cost savings.

“On behalf of Rontal, I am thrilled at the prospects this alliance with T&M represents for us and SimGuard,” said Roni Zehavi, Rontal’s Co-Founder and CEO. “T&M’s multi-disciplined, solutions-based approach is a perfect fit for SimGuard’s capabilities. Its professional security and business consulting planning services unit under T&M’s consulting leader, Jim Francis, can fully leverage SimGuard’s decision support tools. Once developed, SimGuard’s implementation and integration with existing systems can be efficiently accomplished with T&M’s Technology division based in Westbury, NY,” Zehavi added further.
