New Partnership to Support Special Operations Forces in the Detection and Management of Global and Networked Threats
NEW YORK – Sept. 6, 2017 – Boundless, the leader in open GIS, today announced that it has partnered with the Global SOF Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that aims to build and grow an international Special Operations Forces (SOF) network of military, government, commercial and educational stakeholders. The Foundation fosters SOF objectives and partnerships to confront both global and networked threats.
“We’re honored to partner with an organization that supports national and international Armed Forces in such an important way,” said Andy Dearing, CEO of Boundless. “The work conducted by Global SOF plays an integral part in safeguarding national security and supporting critical decision-making; two initiatives that we’re proud to stand behind.”
The Global SOF Foundation is recognized as the leading organization aiding the support and growth of the international SOF network. Aside from working with its partners to promote SOF capabilities, it contributes to the unification of the SOF community through a variety of annual convening forums. The Foundation additionally informs national security policy to ensure the proper development, sustainment, and resourcing of SOF.
“We are thrilled to have Boundless on board,” said Stu Bradin, President and CEO of the Global SOF Foundation and U.S. Army Special Forces COL (Ret). “They were recommended to us by one of our long-term partners, so we know they are the real deal. We are excited to see what they can bring to the international SOF community.”
