Ashburn, Va. and Leesburg, Va. – March 2, 2021– Telos Corporation (NASDAQ: TLS), a leading provider of cyber, cloud and enterprise security solutions for the world’s most security-conscious organizations, and Omnilert, the innovation leader and most trusted partner in emergency communications, today announced the integration of the Telos Ghost virtual obfuscation network into Omnilert Gun Detect, the industry’s first AI-powered visual gun detection solution.
“Adding network obfuscation and misattribution capabilities to Gun Detect enhances our ability to prevent loss of life in the event of an active shooter situation,” said Ara Bagdasarian, co-founder, Omnilert. “Blending Telos Ghost’s capabilities with our own allows for a more robust product, greatly increasing security.”
Omnilert Gun Detect reliably and rapidly recognizes firearms and immediately triggers multi-channel alerts and automated pre-defined safety protocols.

“Mission is incredibly important to us at Telos, and we couldn’t be more gratified that our cybersecurity technology will be leveraged by Omnilert Gun Detect to keep people safe, and ultimately, save lives,” said John B. Wood, CEO and Chairman, Telos. “Integrating Telos Ghost into the company’s innovative visual gun detection offering will ensure safety and security.”
In January 2018, Telos launched the cloud-based Telos Ghost network to provide security and privacy through obfuscation and encryption. The platform operates under the philosophy that you can’t exploit what you can’t see, enabling organizations to work securely over the internet without giving away their identity or their presence.
