Coras, Verizon to deliver secure operations management application for OCR 2017

Coras, a provider of software for managing your business teams, is partnering with Verizon Communications to develop a software application that will be highlighted during Operation Convergent Response 2017 (OCR2017) in Perry, GA, the company said.

OCR2017 is an interactive event that will showcase the single largest, real-world Internet of Things (IoT) test environment. The event simulates real-life hazardous locations and disaster scenes and tests how the IoT environment supports such extreme situations.

The application is built on CorasNow, which is Coras´ a highly secure on-demand rapid application development platform. The platform leverages an open interface and visual design tools so users can quickly and easily build and/or modify applications to meet their precise needs.

The application is designed as part of a first-responder kit developed by Verizon that can be air-dropped and used in the field in emergency situations.

The kits include a highly-secure server with all the required software already installed, including the CorasNow management application. The servers also include Verizon´s proprietary, highly-secure Software Defined Perimeter (SDP). The SDP is “invisible” except to those devices with visible DNS information or IP addresses and mitigates the most common network-based attacks.

Coras is a provider of software that manages business teams. Customers in both the federal and commercial sectors trust Coras to help them drive better decisions, work more efficiently, and rapidly adapt to change.
