MELVILLE, N.Y. & WEYBRIDGE, United Kingdom -- November 19, 2012

Verint^® Systems Inc. (NASDAQ: VRNT) today announced that it is leading and
providing key technologies to the first Total Airport Security Solution (TASS)
proof-of-concept at Heathrow in London. TASS is comprised of a multi-level
video and situation intelligence offering specifically designed to help
airports advance their threat detection capabilities.

Verint, the TASS consortium initiator and coordinator, along with several key
partners from leading European technology companies, launched the field
testing of the TASS prototype in October 2012. During the trial, three
pre-identified security threat scenarios are being tested, allowing members
within the airport community to observe and evaluate the TASS system.

Part of the Seventh EU Framework Program (FP7), TASS is a four year project
that is expected to run until March 2014. The TASS consortium is led by Verint
and composed of 20 leading European technology companies, research institutes
and end-user organizations.

The purpose of TASS is to enable an advanced, integrated approach to airport
security by creating an entire airport situation intelligence solution that
provides real-time, accurate situational awareness to airport authorities.
Based on integrating and fusing different types of real-time sensors and
sub-systems for data collection, TASS operates in a variety of modes,
including fixed and mobile, and under any environmental condition. TASS
represents a significant step forward in developing the model for integrated
systems at airports, which typically have a range of systems and sensors not
natively designed to interoperate or share intelligence in a coordinated

Heathrow security officials will continue to conduct several simulated
scenarios testing the system’s functionality and interoperability with the
integrated technologies. Among the technology being used in the field trial
are Verint’s Nextiva^® Video Management Software^™ (VMS) and Nextiva PSIM^™, a
physical security information management solution. The Verint VMS solution is
a powerful video management application designed to view video, monitor system
health and export information for investigative purposes. Nextiva PSIM
captures information from a variety of security, safety and building
management systems; enables users to view, correlate and analyze the
information to identify situations quickly and efficiently; and helps initiate
and manage responses to security situations in collaboration with local
authorities and agencies. The Nextiva solutions are open-standards based and
have been integrated with the other consortium key partner technologies.

“The TASS consortium is pleased to execute and monitor its first
proof-of-concept testing at Heathrow,” says Gideon Hazzani, TASS project
coordinator and director of business development, Verint Communications and
Cyber Intelligence Solutions^™. “Heathrow’s sophisticated environment made it
an attractive candidate for the trial. Upon integrating the various systems,
the consortium will continue its field trial to validate the Total Airport
Security Solution’s ability to deliver real-time data to security authorities,
enabling them to quickly identify and assess situations, and effectively
respond to alerts within pre-defined parameters set forth by the airport.”
