From local level law enforcement through to national security and border management, SAS has been enabling public security organisations to address such challenges. SAS? world leading public security solutions make sense of information by combining leading business analytics software and services with intelligence management, investigation, data fusion and search technologies. This enables our customers to optimise available resources by prioritising and responding to threats ? both strategically and in real-time ? in an automated, secure and scalable infrastructure.

Industry Solutions

National Security
Every country has a number of intelligence organisations focused on homeland security ? security of their foreign interests, counter terrorism and crime prevention. Irrespective of the makeup and design of these organisations, their challenge is clear: to convert data and intelligence into actionable information and to ensure that data is available to those who require it without compromising its security and integrity.

A reduction in threats to a country cannot be realised without a national security infrastructure that enables data to be collected, fused and converted into intelligence before being analysed and disseminated in a timely manner.

SAS is the world leader in providing this complete capability through our domain-specific solutions.

Law Enforcement
Law enforcement agencies globally are under pressure to achieve efficiencies by achieving more with less. The current economic climate means many agencies have to cope with budget cuts and reorganisation whilst delivering
an equal if not higher level of service to their customers. SAS offers a complete end to end law enforcement solution from intelligence and case management through to custody, property and prosecution phases of an investigation, enabling agencies to address these new challenges whilst optimising operational law enforcement needs.

Fusion Center
A Fusion Center is a terrorism prevention and response centre that enables information sharing between multiple agencies working to deter threats. The concept is now spreading across the globe as a vital front line resource in the fight against terror.

The SAS® Fusion Center solution helps prevent and disrupt criminal activity through the generation of strategic, tactical and investigatory insight looking across a vast number of data sources and types. Furthermore, utilising a highspeed federated search approach, combined with powerful data management capabilities, a real-time single view of the suspect can be achieved without compromising civil liberties.

Border Management

An effective border management solution enables the seamless information flow between stakeholders, facilitating movement of legitimate travellers whilst identifying and risk-assessing the undesirable. SAS offers a secure and integrated solution that facilitates and strengthens the existing security infrastructure through collaboration, automation and complex risk profiling, deployed both strategically and operationally.
