Rajant Recognized by ‘Philadelphia Inquirer’ as Best Employer

“Rajant will soon celebrate our 20th year doing business, which we founded and headquartered in Greater Philadelphia,” said Rajant CEO and Co-founder Robert Schena. “As with our entire staff worldwide, I could not be prouder of our employees and the collective successes we achieve together.”

Rajant Corporation, the provider of Kinetic Mesh® wireless networks headquartered in Malvern, Pennsylvania, and the Platinum Award Winner for ‘Best Wireless Network Security Solution’ in the 2020 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards Program, has been named one of The Philadelphia Inquirer’s “Top Workplaces of 2021”.

The honor was announced on April 11th.

The selection process is based on anonymous employee answers to 24 survey questions centering on company policies, procedures, and culture.

Greater Philadelphia entities earning the distinction in this 12th annual program are categorized by staff size.

According to Energage, the company administering the survey, “Earning the designation as a ‘Top Workplace’ signifies an organization’s commitment to developing and sustaining a culture that supports, promotes, and values its employees.

Winners provide their employees with solid benefits, a positive atmosphere, meaningful work, a culture of strong leadership. These organizations, in turn, drive growth and innovation.”

Rajant is among the public, private, nonprofit, and government sector employers receiving the Inquirer’s award.

Winner rankings in each of the large, medium, and small business categories were revealed in the Sunday, August 22nd edition of The Inquirer.

Also included will be original stories about these organizations created by the Inquirer new team.

“Rajant will soon celebrate our 20th year doing business, which we founded and headquartered in Greater Philadelphia,” shared Rajant CEO and Co-founder Robert Schena.

“As with our entire staff worldwide, I could not be prouder of our employees and the collective successes we achieve together.”

“Our business results are a testament to the quality of our people. They are smart, driven, and dedicated.”

Best Wireless Network Security Solution

  • Rajant ES1 BreadCrumb

  • Enabling highly mobile, IoT applications for public safety and security, the Rajant ES1 BreadCrumb is a compact, lightweight IP67 network node that provides Ethernet and Wi-Fi access point interfaces for critical frontline M2M and man-to-machine data, voice, and video communication.

  • Ideal for wearable technology, like the Vorbeck HD4 Harness, the Rajant ES1 connects Hot Zone to Cold Zone in the harshest communication environments in real-time.

“Hot zone” (unsafe) to “cold zone” (safe) dynamic communication is critical when it comes to public safety. Rajant with Vorbeck makes this real-time assessment for first responders possible.
  • The ES1 supports cryptographic options used for data and MAC-address encryption and per-hop, per-packet authentication.

  • With robust reliability, information is securely networked between on-site responders, their equipment, and Incident Command.

  • Deployment of the multi-band, multi-radio ES1 is easy and cost-effective.

  • Untethering emergency response, man and machine can be connected on-the-go for comprehensive situational awareness anywhere response is required – land, air, or sea – above and underground.
