Smarter Public Safety and Justice
In order to maintain public safety, agencies collect tremendous amounts of data, but without the ability to hold, analyze and disseminate that information they are unable to maximize its value in reducing crime and responding to crisis situations. IBM's solutions help create actionable insights for law enforcement and first responders. Explore our solutions to learn more about how IBM Analytics can help you maintain public safety and respond to disasters.

Criminal justice systems worldwide struggle with high rates of recidivism and poor correctional performance. IBM Analytics solutions provide powerful tools to address both challenges.
Smarter Defense and Intelligence
For today's military operations, there is a greater need for a coalition approach for a successful mission. There is a critical need to truly interoperate, by sharing information, command and control systems and business processes.
Intelligence professionals struggle under a growing load of information, both structured and unstructured, as they work to extract what is important, current and directly applicable to the operational requirements of military and government leaders.
Both these types of information require a high level of security surrounding the systems and network that provide the information-building, sustaining and regularly assessing the security of systems and information are critical. IBM i2 Enterprise Insight Analysis is a next-generation intelligence solution designed to turn overwhelming and disparate data sets into comprehensive intelligence, in near real time. Featuring world-class big data advanced analytics and multi-dimensional analysis capabilities that perform at speed and scale, i2 Enterprise Insight Analysis helps organizations accelerate the data to decision process by uncovering hidden connections buried in disparate and overwhelming data sets.
Threat Prediction and Prevention

How can I equip intelligence analysts and front-line troops with the right information at the right time and in the right format?
National security and defense organizations find themselves stuck between intensifying threat challenges, and information management capabilities that limit their ability to “connect the dots.” For these agencies, IBM offers integrated big data analytics and insight capabilities that enable analyses and cross correlation on diverse structured, semi-structured and unstructured big data sets, at rest or in motion, from a large variety of sources. These capabilities provide timely actionable and cost-effective intelligence for real-time decision support based on reliable target (person or entity of interest) and mission data. They also enable contextual threat analysis and the ability to harness and utilize third party data for extended analyses.
How can I use online analytical processing to determine which units to send in response to requests for armed forces?
Mission readiness requires close coordination of people, training, supplies and ordnance to ensure forces ready for any threat. IBM Predictive Maintenance and Quality enables better mission outcomes by monitoring, maintaining, and optimizing assets, predicting asset failure and reducing guesswork. It analyzes data from multiple sources and provides recommended actions.

Enhanced Cyber Security
Every day, our digital identity is menaced by several cyber threats that are becoming even more sophisticated. Every year, data breaches expose millions of records that are used by cyber criminals for illegal activities. Cyber threats vary greatly and so do the sources of the threats. To counter those various sources, organizations need intelligence to fortify themselves from both internal and external threats.
Cyber Threat Analysis
Protecting Your Organization from Cyber Threats: Apply advanced analytics at unprecedented speed and scale for insights into vulnerabilities and attackers in near real time.
How can I uncover hidden connections and insights to enable smarter security decisions?
Traditional security measures are no match for today’s sophisticated and aggressive cyber criminals or the frequency of their attacks. Many breaches occur because most security strategies focus solely on the perimeter and the attack, without understanding the cyber criminals behind the threats and their motivations. By using insights about the attackers and their motives, cyber threat analysis can help organizations mitigate, counter and better protect their customers and data against cyber threats.
IBM i2 Enterprise Insight Analysis is a next generation intelligence analysis solution. This solution goes beyond detecting an existing threat, enabling organizations to enhance their cyber security strategies with actionable and real-world intelligence collected from public, social and enterprise-wide data sets. The added layer of insights gives organizations the ability to identify the who and why behind threats, turning a defensive cyber strategy into a proactive one.
Cognitive Cyber Defense
Cognitive Cyber Defense is an advanced persistent threat (AVP) threat detector. It resides inside the enterprise and looks for the subtle cues, activities, and anomalies such as beaconing, fast fluxing and exfiltration indicative of an infected system. Cognitive Cyber Defense does not replace rules and signature-based solutions such as SIEM, IDS, IPS, FireEye, but rather complements them.
