The Security Overview section gives you a visual representation of the static and dynamic locations of all your organization’s assets (end-users and facilities). To detect any threats to your assets, you can plot the alerts on the map as well and see which assets might be at risk. Finally, select recipients from the Security Overview and communicate with them to ensure their safety.
You can choose between several map views — including the Risk Map, Default Map, and Satellite Map — onto which you can add information layers to customize your view and focus on relevant threats to your organization.
When selecting the Risk Map, all countries are given a color based on their overall risk level. You can click on a specific country to get more in-depth risk information. Our country risk assessment methodology comprises ten risk categories and five risk levels.
You also have the option to edit risk information to align it with any requirements you might have. Click here to see how to edit a country’s overall risk level to comply with any standards or requirements you might have.
You can customize the information on Risk Map through filtering and clustering.
Filtering – alerts
In the section for alerts, you can customize the display of alerts based on:
- Location – country
- Scope – time interval
- Severity – low, medium or high-risk alerts.
- Publisher – either Safeture or an external organization
Updates has also been made to the dashboard where you now can find a link to edit the countries you would like to see alerts from in the dashboard’s incident feed from the last 24 hours.
Filtering – incidents
In the section for risk categories, you can choose to see the risk levels for each country given a specific risk category.
Filtering – end-users
In the Users section of the new filtering menu, you can filter your people based on:
- Customer – choose the desired account.
- Subscription – subscription number
- Location – countries
- Groups – groups of users
- Status – active or inactive
- Home – home or traveling users
You can also manually add people by searching for a name, phone number, or country.
Get a better overview by clustering the elements displayed on the Risk Map.
When zooming out on the map in the Web Portal with the cluster option is enabled, incidents, users, and facilities will be displayed in clusters.
The cluster of incidents is given the color of the highest severity out of the clustered incidents and will display a blue polygon presenting the outer bounding border of all incidents when hovering the icon.
Note: All filters and options are stored in the browser’s local storage, which means they will remain as they were between sessions and when navigating back and forth on the Web Portal.
One information layer you can plot on the map in the Security Overview section is alerts, which are notifications about incidents.
All alerts are also assigned a risk level and impact radius by Safeture’s analysts. The impact radius is represented by a circle around the incident on the map, which is dynamic and varies depending on whether it is seen as a local or country-wide incident. The radius can be set to a distance between 10 km and 1000 km. An incident can also have multiple impact locations.

If any employee or facility is located within the radius of the incident, the Safeture Platform will identify the threat and notify Administrators immediately. The end-user will get an alert and information about the event, and advice on how to act. For medium- and high-risk alerts, end-users are also requested to confirm that they are OK in the Safeture Mobile Application.
If you tick the end-users box, the system will plot all users on the map. The icons representing your users are given different colors based on their position accuracy, which reflects the privacy levels set in the Safeture Mobile Application (exact location, city level, or region/state). Locations are divided into states, regions, provinces, counties, or similar.
- Position older than 24 hours
A striped icon signals that there is no up-to-date location report for that user. The threshold for when a location report should be marked as old can be configured in the Settings section of the web portal, but it is 24 hours as default.
When an end-user has activated the emergency button, the icon will turn red and flash as a configurable audio alert is activated.
- Missed Scheduled Check-in
In any case of a missed check-in, the user’s icon will turn yellow.
- Airport/Hotel Position
In addition to phone locations provided through the Safeture Mobile Application, the Safeture Platform can also position employees through travel booking data. This is done by integrating with your Travel Management Company (TMC) to stream the travel data to the platform.
Any static location, such as your offices, factories, warehouses, stores, etcetera, can be added as a facility and plotted on the map to identify any potential threat to the people working there.
Travel Warnings are all geographical areas where you currently are advised not to travel by ministries of foreign affairs.
With the Quick Selector, you can easily draw a shape on the map and message all users located within that area. The selected area can be part of a country, city, or even multiple countries at once.
Scheduled Check-ins enable a systematic way of making sure your employees are OK. As an Administrator, you can set specific dates and times when you want individuals or groups to check-in. A missed check-in will trigger notifications to selected Administrators, and a new widget to appear on the Dashboard. The check-in time is automatically set to each end-user’s current time zone.
