The global monitoring company, Netwatch Group, was formed following the merger of four market leading monitoring companies with the backing of global private equity firm The Riverside Company. Netwatch Group, formed in 2018, includes leading monitoring companies NMC (United States), Netwatch (Ireland), CalAtlantic (United States) and Onwatch Multifire (United Kingdom). The focus on:
leading the consolidation of the proactive visual monitoring industry starting with the combination of Netwatch, Onwatch Multifire and CalAtlantic
bringing the innovations and reliability of the visual prevention capabilities perfected by Netwatch over the last 15 years to thousands of the Onwatch Multifire, CalAtlantic and NMC end-users through their valued dealer partners around the world
The new group is protecting hundreds of thousands of sites in the United States, United Kingdom, Europe, Middle East and Africa in a wide variety of segments including government, transportation, critical infrastructure (utilities, communications, energy), manufacturing, education, stadiums, finance, retail and residential.
Netwatch Group will be headquartered in Carlow, Ireland. Its North American headquarters will be located in Lake Forest, California with satellite offices in Boston, New Jersey, Dallas, Houston, and Chicago. The company’s UK headquarters will be in East Sussex, United Kingdom. The company will immediately have a network of six advanced Global Monitoring Centers, connected by the Netwatch proprietary CRATOS technology platform.
The Netwatch system is more effective than CCTV, an alarm and a security guard combined, as it allows visual recognition to determine a real crime from a false alarm. Netwatch can remotely alert the authorities to any unauthorised activity at a client's property, which negates the necessity to place a business owner, key holder or security personnel in danger.
