SAS® tackles crime with powerful public security software
New solutions help modernise public safety worldwide, prevent and deter threats
Mumbai, India (Sep. 26, 2013) – SAS, the leader in business analytics software and services, announced the launch of powerful new software suite which will help modernise public security organisations worldwide, in managing both big data and big budget deficits.
The new platform combines SAS® Analytics and SAS Security Intelligence with Memex's secure search and intelligence-management technologies. The new offerings are the culmination of SAS' 2010 acquisition of Memex, a worldwide leader in intelligence management.
"Across developed and developing worlds alike, public security budgets are being slashed and resources cut," says Ian Manocha, Vice President for SAS Europe Middle East and Africa (EMEA) and Asia Pacific (AP). "Yet pressure mounts for improved results against increasingly sophisticated, globalised and technologically advanced criminals and terrorists. SAS is the first packaged offering to help agencies manage and connect intelligence silos, dip into open-source data streams and apply big-data analytics to stay one step ahead of the criminals – all cost-effectively and securely."
Commenting on the occasion, Sudipta K. Sen, Regional Director – South East Asia, CEO & Managing Director - SAS Institute (India) said, "Ensuring national security and public safety has always been an area of top priority for nations. SAS' world leading Public Security Solution empowers government agencies across geographies to efficiently predict, prevent and respond to threats in real time. We are excited by the positive responses received from government agencies in India and we are confident that they will harness the power of analytics to further enhance public safety and national security."
Part of a broader suite of security intelligence solutions that address fraud, financial crimes and cybersecurity, the new SAS portfolio covers four critical areas of public security: law enforcement, national security, fusion centres and border control.
