SAS® Anti-Money Laundering named best compliance solution

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

The readers of Waters magazine have selected business analytics leader SAS as the best anti-money laundering (AML) compliance solution provider which is part of the 2013 Waters Rankings program, 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.
