The acquisition of ESP Group will solidify NC4's position in real-time, 24/7 situational awareness and crisis management.

NC4 operates incident monitoring centers providing clients with customized alerts on breaking emergencies, as well as maps and various forms of media information on events as they unfold.

NC4 also provides the E Team crisis and incident management solution, which gives government and corporate clients the situational response, interoperability, and management capabilities to more effectively manage disasters, emergencies, other events and daily operational activities, as well as preparedness and training exercises.

The ESP (Extranet Secure Portals) Group develops and operates secure, internet collaboration systems for the public and private sector. The ESP Group will become a wholly-owned subsidiary of NC4.

"This acquisition brings together real-time content necessary for situational awareness and the capabilities for large and broad communities to collaborate and coordinate their responses," says ESP Group president and CEO William Potvin. "We share a similar client base, and the merged company will help us provide more effective and cost-efficient solutions to all customers."

ESP will be integrated into the merged organization, and their senior executives William Potvin, Ron Register, George Johnson, Matt Donlon, Cliff Gregory, and Michael Sugerman will retain their current positions within the new structure.
