ZeroEyes, developers of a artificial intelligence (AI)-based gun detection technology, has announced a new strategic partnership with Texas’ Region 13 Education Service Center, which serves as a liaison between the Texas Education Agency and the local school districts.

The company says that it is now a vendor under the Center’s cooperative contract, a master service agreement that facilitates the tech acquisition process for Region 13 school districts in Texas.

Through the partnership, schools affiliated with Region 13 will have access to pre-negotiated, discounted contracts for ZeroEyes’ gun detection technology.

By leveraging the cooperative purchasing agreement, schools can avoid the expense and administrative burden of conducting their own request for proposal (RFP) process.

ZeroEyes also announced that it has earned Texas Risk and Authorization Management Program (TX-RAMP) Level 2 certification for government cloud operations, indicating that the company can now operate with confidential/regulated data in moderate or high-impact systems.

“We are excited to boost our commitment to protecting the great state of Texas against gun-related violence,” said Mike Lahiff, CEO and Co-Founder of ZeroEyes.

“The TX-RAMP Level 2 certification confirms that our cloud solution is fully secure for government deployment and our partnership with Region 13 will provide an efficient and cost-effective process for Texas schools to adopt our technology.”
