Critical communication and collaboration platform Rave Mobile Safety has acquired mobile safety app provider AppArmor. The transaction combines Rave’s scalable and robust platform with AppArmor’s customer-focused quick app customization.

AppArmor uses a proprietary approach to develop custom branded safety apps and emergency notification services. The company has a robust customer base in higher education and healthcare and has developed services for statewide K-12 anonymous tipping systems in Florida and Hawaii. With this acquisition, Rave will now provide 75 percent of the North American higher education population with services for campus safety, critical campus communication, emergency alerts, and anonymous tipping services.

“AppArmor shares our mission to disrupt and innovate critical communications and incident collaboration and has established a robust customer base that speaks to their ability to deliver technology that makes a difference,” said Todd Piett, CEO of Rave. “With the addition of AppArmor, the combined company can now offer our clients an even broader suite of market-leading solutions to enhance safety and response for higher education institutions, public safety agencies and private enterprises.”

“At AppArmor, we set out to become the innovators of public safety and joining with Rave is a major step forward in that mission,” said David Sinkinson, co-founder and CEO at AppArmor. “The integration of AppArmor into Rave’s leading safety platform will benefit all our customers as we combine technology to provide a better suite of safety products and further strengthen our industry-leading customer service.”
