ATLANTA -- Vumii announced it has formed a strategic partnership with The Cohen Group to provide global advisory services and business development resources to meet the growth in demand for Vumii's award-winning, advanced threat assessment technologies.

The Cohen Group is an international business advisory firm based in Washington, DC chaired by former Defense Secretary William S. Cohen. As part of the partnership, Secretary Cohen will serve as Chairman of Vumii's Advisory Board to bring his knowledge of international markets and global threats to help ensure Vumii's continued success in protecting vital economic, military, and national security interests.

"The need for intelligent and actionable threat assessment is of paramount importance as governments, and industries look to secure their high value assets from intrusion or attack," Secretary Cohen said. "Vumii's detailed visual solutions represent a new standard in situational awareness, especially at night. The more a threat is visible and understandable from a far enough distance, the better the chances to intercede, reducing risk and loss of property and life."

To further extend the relationship between Vumii and The Cohen Group, Kevin Cohen will serve in the role of Senior Advisor to Vumii, and lead joint business development activities between Vumii and The Cohen Group. Kevin is based in Atlanta and has a long background in cutting edge technology-based ventures, both from his career at Turner Broadcasting as well as his current firm DoubleMan Media.

Randall Foster, co-founder and CEO of Vumii, said "Vumii is excited to have the extensive resources of The Cohen Group and Kevin Cohen working with us to help expand our current success in the critical infrastructure, transportation, border security, and military/defense markets and to develop more channel partners, both domestically and internationally. Vumii has expanded its active illumination technology products to now fit both long range and short/medium range requirements for most border and perimeter security environments. Our solutions are providing security professionals exactly what they need right now, especially at night - actionable details at longer distances at an affordable price."
