DELHI & SURAT, India & MELVILLE, N.Y. -- January 18, 2013

Verint^® Systems Inc.(NASDAQ: VRNT) today announced its association with the
Safe City Project initiated by the Surat City Police Department and Surat
Traffic Education Trust to help enhance the safety and security of Surat City
inhabitants. With the successful project launch on 18 January 2013, the
diamond city of Surat in Gujarat will benefit from a state-of-the-art 24x7
video surveillance and security command center.

“There is a need to enhance the safety and security of Surat City based on its
large population and concentration of key industries, such as diamond,
textile, engineering, and oil and gas,” says Mr. Rakesh Asthana, Police
Commissioner, Surat City. “The Surat Safe City Project is an investment
designed to help ensure the safety of our people and bring a greater awareness
of security amongst our citizens. This project of the government of Gujarat
has been executed successfully as a public partnership by the Surat Police
Commissionerate,” along with Surat Traffic Education Trust, Innovative Telecom
and Verint as a technology partner.

The initial phase of the Surat Safe City Project consisted of 100+ closed
circuit television (CCTV) cameras covering all major traffic junctions along
with critical entry and exit points in the city. In subsequent phases, the
Surat City Police Department and Surat Traffic Education Trust plan to extend
the coverage in the city, which has a population of approximately forty five
lakh (or about 4,500,000), by integrating the project with the proposed state
government surveillance and command center network in Gandhinagar. The city
administration plans to increase the number of surveillance locations to 5,000
by the end of the project implementation.

At the heart of the project is the deployment of a state-of-the-art command,
control and communications center (C3) with a 280 square foot “video wall”
that can centrally monitor, aggregate and analyze multiple surveillance feeds
in police headquarters to support the proactive physical security management
of the city. The center includes a city mapping capability that provides
reports on physical security and fire alarm and water levels, along with
evacuation and disaster recovery plans.

“We are honored to be part of the Surat Safe City Project, which is designed
to provide a more secure environment for citizens,” says Manish Shah, VP South
East Asia, Verint. “Verint solutions help public safety organizations meet a
range of modern challenges, from evolving communications media to homeland
security concerns, and in doing so, help improve performance and protect
people, property and assets.”

The task of implementing a state-of-the-art command, control and
communications center (C3) was successfully executed by Surat Traffic
Education Trust in partnership with the Surat City Police Department. To
support its focus, it invested in Verint’s Nextiva^® Video Management
Software^™ and Nextiva Physical Security Information Management^™ solutions in
September 2012, taking the technology live last month as part of the overall
Surat Safe City Project rollout. According to the organizations, these
capabilities serve as critical components of the city’s overall command center
plan that’s focused on proactive approaches to help identify, analyze and take
action on security and criminal threats.

“Surat City is a commercial hub for India’s diamond and textile markets. As
such, the city is a high-security risk area for potential theft and crime. To
help proactively identify and neutralize such threats, the city administration
and police department initiated the Safe City Project to increase awareness
and security amongst the people and help ensure 24x7 surveillance,” adds Mr.
Mihir Chahwala, Director, Innovative Telecom & Software Pvt Ltd., a leading
security solutions company based in Western India, and a Verint partner.
