In recent years, the challenge of mitigating threats and maintaining the integrity of worldwide operations has grown in exponential fashion. Today, you are faced with a flood of problems brought on by:
- the changing dynamics of market globalization
- unstable political climates
- increasingly wide-spread supply chains
- the mounting reliance on outsourcing
- the expanding complexities of regional, national and international economic regulations.
These are just some of the daunting realities facing organizations today as they work to keep assets safe and secure and operations running smoothly. There is information available that can signal harm to physical or human assets. From natural disasters to acts of terrorism and criminal activities, information of real and potential threats is continuously growing. How can you find the ever-growing accumulation of data that exists in disparate locations throughout the Internet?
Leaders in the intelligence community from the Office of National Intelligence and the FBI believe that upwards of 95 percent of the information required to do their jobs is available on the Internet. Every hour of every day, information becomes available on events and conditions that could affect planned operations and result in a logistical nightmare, ultimately preventing shipments from safely reaching their destinations. Intelligent, persistent web monitoring – especially of sites outside of traditional sources – is essential to heading off problems developing in select parts of the world.
The most precious resource in finding information of interest is time. RiverGlass is the only solution that allows users to decide what information is important before collecting it – as opposed to after. By leveraging user context to zero in on information of interest, decision-makers can act more quickly, yet with greater effectiveness.
Information can have crucial impact and access to immediate information is imperative to address or prevent events that can easily become catastrophic. RiverGlass not only searches according to criteria that is relevant to you, but we do so continuously. We identify key locales, actors and events with entity extractions. And we deliver that information to you automatically, in a manner that is efficient and relates data points to each other, drawing conclusions and making connections. Urgent data can even be sent over directly to your BlackBerry or other communication device.
