SecureWaters, Inc. today announced it will join Cisco Entrepreneurs in Residence (Cisco EIR), a technology innovation program of Cisco Systems, Inc. supporting early-stage startups. Cisco EIR extends SecureWaters the opportunity to work with Cisco and its global partner ecosystem to build a next generation water quality and security solution for Smart Cities through the power of the Internet of Everything (IoE).
SecureWaters, http://www.securewatersinc.com, develops and manufactures the AquaSentinelTM water security toxicity monitor. The AquaSentinel provides smart cities, municipalities, and utilities with autonomous real-time monitoring of surface waters by continuously gathering and transmitting water quality data to the cloud. The AquaSentinel enables intelligent response to accidental or intentional spills, terrorist attacks and natural disasters that adversely impact monitored bodies of water.
The AquaSentinel is being recognized as one of the 50 most promising global environmental products by the Kauffman Foundation, winner of the IBM Smartcamp and finalist of the Katerva Awards in 2013 and 2014.
