Conduct more efficient, targeted investigations.

An easy-to-use interface empowers intelligence analysts and investigators to work cooperatively and conduct thorough investigations. Dynamic workspaces provide interactive visualization and search capabilities for building, gathering and exploring information relevant to investigations. You can easily document findings by capturing views from investigations and search visualizations, as well as your own notes and images.

Turn insight into action. Fast.

Alerts are intelligently prioritized for expedient triage, investigation and disposition. Powerful entity analytics highlights potential areas of interest and provides insights that enable fast action with virtually no time lag. Intelligence analysts can import their own data, perform free-text or geospatial searches across data sources, then filter and visualize search results in different ways to identify key patterns, connections, people and events hidden within complex data. And with a scenario-fired event model, including scenario context, it's easy to manage alerts and events.
