Wynyard Group chosen to fight crime and terrorism

07 Jan 15

A national security bureau has chosen Wynyard Group to help fight organised crime and counter terrorism.

Specialising in advanced crime analytics software and services as well as risk management, Wynyard group already has users in the United States, United Kingdom, New Zealand and beyond.

The contract, which was signed with an international partner, has a value of more than $3.2 million in the initial term with an estimated $2.5 million to be recognised in 2014.

Wynyard Group will partner with a recognised multi-national systems integrator in order to deliver the solution.

“This is an important customer with a growing problem - big data, a rapidly changing network of organised criminals and the need to rapidly surface actionable intelligence to help protect the country’s citizens and critical national infrastructure,” says Craig Richardson, Wynyard Group chief executive office.

Richardson says Wynyard Group plans to continue to expand into the national security market and grow its global partner program. He says this win reflects the confidence users around the world have in Wynyard Group’s advanced crime fighting software.
