App proves no risk for security team

Shaun West Managing Director of WF Special Projects and David Frame of DEF Apps

A South Tyneside software company has recently completed a ‘James Bond style’ top security iPhone application after being selected by a Russian firm that provides global security for high profile VIP’s.

Boldon-based technology experts DEF Apps designed and developed the app for WF Special Projects, which protects VIPs, diplomats, sports stars and high profile business people.

The new iPhone app gives the company’s team leaders access to data that allows them to plan and control detailed client protection operations across Europe and in some of the world’s most dangerous hostile environments. 

David Frame, head of DEF Apps, said: “Many of WF’s clients include famous, wealthy, or politically important people.

“Providing security advice and protecting individuals and their families involves a lot of detailed planning work and highly sensitive data, which has to be instantly available and updatable by all the authorised users.  

“This is a true business app and is deployed by the team whilst protecting some of the most high profile individuals on the planet.”

Teams of up to eight close protection officers are managed by a team leader, who needs access to all live project data on the clients - right down to their blood group - plus the protection team’s CVs, radio details and information on the kit they will be carrying.
