BAE Systems Detica Awarded a "Best-in-Class" in Two Categories in Anti-Money 
Laundering Technology Analysis 
Research Shows That Anti-Money Laundering (AML) Is the Top Area of
Focus for Compliance Executives and Leading Financial Institutions
Are Developing an Enterprise Strategy for Anti-Money Laundering
NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 02/26/13 --  BAE Systems Detica today
announced that its Detica NetReveal(R) enterprise risk, fraud and
compliance solution has been named a "best-in-class" by CEB
TowerGroup analysts in its latest Anti-Money Laundering Technology
Analysis report. 
The solution came top in the categories of Detection Tools and
Enterprise Support. Detica NetReveal is a unique AML offering in
several respects, but the most notable differentiator is the
solution's handling of false positives. 
By understanding that in money laundering, false positives are
assessed to be those alerts with specific end states showing that an
investigation was not worthwhile, the system is able to continuously
refine its models through the application of theoretical modeling and
optimization techniques such as predictive and descriptive analytics,
resulting in improved efficiency and effectiveness. 
The report further states that BAE Systems Detica developers possess
such nuanced understanding of the space that the Detica NetReveal
solution easily stands out, even in such a competitive field as AML
CEB TowerGroup research director Andy Schmidt said:
laundering is the top compliance pain point for banks, regardless of
size. Regulators have become more aggressive in enforcing AML
compliance, levying fines that can reach into the billions of
dollars. Financial services institutions looking to safeguard their
operations from money laundering activity will deploy solutions that
combine robust analytical and predictive tools, rich graphical and
workflow capabilities, and a nuanced understanding of this
increasingly complex space."  
Joe Friscia, President of the Americas, BAE Systems Detica, said: 
"As the AML and compliance panorama continues to evolve, financial
institutions have to develop and embed a corporate culture that
embraces enterprise-wide AML risk management. They have to
continuously gain the knowledge to prepare for regulatory mandates
efficiently and cost effectively and this can only be achieved with
the support of leading edge technology supported by deep industry
