SAS® Anti-Money Laundering named best compliance solution 

Waters magazine ranks SAS as the leader in anti-money laundering category

Mumbai, India  (Aug. 14, 2013)  – SAS, the leader in business analytics software and services, has been selected by the readers of Waters magazine as the best Anti-Money Laundering (AML) compliance solution provider. The Waters Rankings program is currently in its 11th year.

"Supported by industry-leading analytics, our comprehensive regulatory compliance solution helps analysts and investigators increase investigation efficiency while providing transparency to regulators on alerts and cases," said Ellen Joyner, Global Marketing Principal for SAS Security Intelligence.

SAS Anti-Money Laundering takes full advantage of high-performance analytics capabilities to provide the most accurate, complete solution for detecting, investigating and reporting on potential illicit activity – including customer due diligence, suspicious activity monitoring, watch-list filtering, FinCEN e-filing support and case management. Through enhanced scenario tuning and what-if analysis, SAS Anti-Money Laundering helps customers dramatically reduce the time – from hours to minutes – it takes to provide investigators the relevant information, conduct preliminary analyses and identify areas that need further attention, such as suspicious transactions or unusual patterns. This gives them more time to focus on the most critical cases.

SAS also provides a user group for its AML customers, enabling them to share best practices and knowledge as a community.

SAS Anti-Money Laundering, part of SAS Financial Crimes Suite, brings together multiple SAS solutions and technologies for detecting, preventing and managing financial crimes including money laundering and fraud. Organizations can use the flexibility of interconnected modules to roll out either a single or multiple modules, decreasing implementation times and improving results.

"Safeguarding against money laundering continues to be a high priority agenda for financial institutions. At SAS, we leverage our analytics expertise to provide a unified defence against fraud, financial crimes and money laundering. It's indeed an accomplishment to be recognised as the leader in anti-money laundering category." said Sudipta K. Sen, Regional Director – South East Asia, CEO & Managing Director - SAS Institute (India).

More than 100 institutions across the globe use SAS for AML. In April 2013, SAS Anti-Money Laundering appeared in the leaders category of Chartis Research's Anti-Money Laundering Solutions 2013 RiskTech Quadrant™ report.
