NEW YORK, April 2, 2024 – Today, Dataminr, one of the world’s leading AI companies, and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) have announced an expansion of their partnership to provide NATO with Dataminr’s First Alert, the company’s product for the public sector. As the world faces the most potentially dangerous decade since the Cold War and pervasive geopolitical unrest, Dataminr’s AI platform provides global defense organizations with real-time alerts on breaking events to enable faster response and better protection of their troops and critical infrastructure.

“Now more than ever, defense organizations need to integrate advanced AI in order to protect their global forces and infrastructure,” said Leon Panetta, former U.S. Secretary of Defense. “The indications and warnings created by Dataminr’s AI platform are the gold standard for fast and accurate real-time information on breaking events.” 

“We are thrilled to expand our partnership with NATO and to support their critical global mission,” said Ted Bailey, Founder and CEO of Dataminr. “In an increasingly volatile and unpredictable world, Dataminr’s First Alert product has proven to be extremely effective for defense organizations seeking to protect their forces and keep their troops out of harm’s way.”

Dataminr First Alert serves defense, federal, NGO partners, and state and local governments in both the U.S. and across the globe. First Alert provides real-time alerts to over 145,000 users spanning nearly 200 public sector and social good organizations, including the United Nations.
