Our heritage and leadership About SEAK

Our mission is to enhance the physical and mental wellbeing of personnel within organisations. Our technology delivers this via a centralised cloud platform and integrated app.

SEAK provides sophisticated cloud technologies to organisations and their personnel. Via a centralised platform and integrated app for iOS and Android, SEAK enables organisations to: know where their people are and coordinate safe work practises; send messages securely across any scale; schedule wellbeing check-in requests and receive location check-ins anytime; and to provide its personnel with discreet personal support at all times.

Founded on the expertise and security nous of highly experienced operators from elite military and police backgrounds, SEAK benefits from a dedicated in-house onshore development team with decades of ingenuity in software engineering.

SEAK’s products and services have been designed to integrate with customers’ existing security provisions, partners, and protocols to protect and enhance their current personnel safety and security investment.

SEAK Global was founded by a group of highly experienced operators consisting of former Special Forces personnel, police and security specialists with UK parliament and government backgrounds. Along with our in-house software development team, we have designed and created tailored security focused technology solutions for the past 5 years.

Our unique combination of in-depth market expertise and state-of-the-art technology platforms enables us to deliver effective solutions that enhance our customers’ existing security and personnel safety provisions.

We identified four specific areas in which architectural upgrades could improve the performance, reliability, and scalability of our products for our clients.

Autonomous sign-up – our technologies are accessible from any device at any time.

App-first architecture – core functionality and alerting features are accessible even when connection is intermittent or unavailable.

Near limitless scalability – serverless architecture automatically handles increasing traffic.

Unified identity providers – a single SAFE sign-in can be used for the app, platform, and additional SEAK services, enabling the sharing of assets between and within companies.
