SAS launches its new software suite for public security organisations
New Delhi, India, September 27, 2013: SAS, the leader in business analytics software and services, launched its new software suite which will help 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.
Ian Manocha, Vice President for SAS Europe Middle East and Africa (EMEA) and Asia Pacific (AP), said, “Across developed and developing worlds alike, public security budgets are being slashed and resources cut. 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.”

SAS for Law Enforcement – Helps law enforcement combat crime and terrorism more effectively, enhance customer service, improve officer safety and ensure compliance while reducing cost.
