Pressing need for improved security combined with innovative screening solutions and trusted customer partnerships drive Evolv’s continued industry-leading position
Waltham, Massachusetts – November 13, 2023 – Evolv Technology (NASDAQ: EVLV), the leader in AI-based weapons detection security screening, today announced that it has further extended its leadership position in helping to make places safer where people live, work, learn and play. As of September 30, 2023, the Company has:
- Surpassed 1 billion visitors screened since the launch of Evolv Express® in 2019.
- Detected nearly 300,000 guns and knives through the first nine months of 2023.
- Surpassed averaging over 2 million people screened per day.
- Surpassed 4,000 active, long-term subscriptions of Evolv Express weapons detection systems.
With over 1 billion visitors screened and counting, Evolv’s growing detection data allows its systems to get more accurate over time. As a result, Evolv is now stopping an average of approximately 1,000 weapons each day from entering venues where they do not belong.
Evolv’s Express offers a non-intrusive screening process for visitors while empowering security professionals with an integrated suite of digitally enabled sensors, analytics and communication that is designed to deter, detect and orchestrate response to weapons that can cause injury and loss of life. Evolv’s advanced approach to weapons screening has been a welcome innovation to security professionals around the country who have embraced the technology as an added protective layer into their safety plans.
“With the metal detectors, we got complaints that we were violating the rights of students and that we were overly intrusive with our secondary checks. That has gone away with Evolv,” commented
Mark Laurrie, Superintendent, Niagara Falls City School District in New York. “We ultimately concluded that the Evolv Express system was the least intrusive, most thorough, and most comprehensive weapons detection system out there.”
“We looked at a lot of different systems. We traveled throughout the country to a lot of different security shows. Evolv really is the best out there,” said Danny Mulligan, Director of Security, Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts in New York City.
“Evolv is invested in making our environment at the Boch Center safe and secure. Unlike some other vendors, they didn’t sell a solution and then walked away from it in the hope that everything worked out for us. They’ve been here from the start—just like they have been with their other customers across the country,” noted Eric Neill, Director of Theater Operations, Boch Center in Boston.
“We look forward to continuing to innovate, improve, and expand our solutions for the communities we serve and are grateful for the continued partnership we share with security professionals across the country,” said Peter George, President and Chief Executive Officer of Evolv Technology. “By every meaningful dimension – including customers, subscriptions, visitors screened, and weapons tagged – we continue to see growing evidence of our market leadership position."
