NEW YORK, August 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

NICE Actimize, a NICE Systems (NASDAQ:NICE) business and the largest and
broadest provider of a single financial crime, risk and compliance software
platform for the financial services industry, announced today that the company
was positioned as a leading vendor in theAite Group 2013 Impact Report, "The
Trade Surveillance Compliance Market and the Battle for Automation" for its
offerings in Trade Surveillance and Communications Surveillance. Aite Group is
an independent research and advisory firm focused on business, technology and
regulatory issues and their impact on the financial services industry.

NICE Actimize has more than a decade of experience in providing global
compliance and regulatory solutions to tier one and tier two financial
institutions. The NICE Actimize Trade Surveillance solutions suite is a
full-service compliance offering for brokers, asset managers, and clearing
firms for firm-level and trader-level monitoring and market surveillance.
Deployment options for the solution include an on-premises installation, a
hosted solution through cloud technology, or a hybrid deployment combining the
two. The report highlights the breadth of the offerings and quality of the
solutions' analytics.

The solutions are designed to monitor the full trade life cycle including
related communications, with the ability to analyze relevant news events,
coupled with the capability to run trading activity through advanced
algorithms to determine suspicious activity, stated the report. NICE Actimize
offers a variety of data-sourcing options; data may be drawn directly from
client trading systems, proprietary systems, market data vendors, or via data
warehouses deployed by the client.

NICE Actimize also offers Communications Surveillance, available as an
additional standalone product or via full integration with Trade Surveillance.
Communications Surveillance includes voice, email, Instant Message, and social
media monitoring to provide a holistic view of all trade-related activities.

"Growing demand for holistic, all-inclusive, front-to-back solutions -
including hosted options - means that many firms are looking to consolidate
vendor solutions across the front, middle and back offices," said Danielle
Tierney, research analyst, Aite Group LLC, author of the report. "One area of
recent development has been efforts to provide integrated analysis of social
media and unstructured data and NICE Actimize provides this."

According to the report, the global regulatory overhaul of recent years caused
compliance initiatives, and thus the need for compliance and market
surveillance technology, to move to the forefront of financial market
priorities. Aite Group's research indicates that compliance technology
spending is likely to grow by 35 percent from 2012 to 2015.

"NICE Actimize's combination of trade and communications surveillance provides
a holistic view of the full trade lifecycle. We are noted in the market for
the way in which we tailor the implementation to our client's workflow and
needs, and our marriage of comprehensive algorithms with high-quality data,"
said Amir Orad, President and CEO of NICE Actimize. "NICE Actimize remains
committed to addressing the market's changing requirements for trade
surveillance and compliance solutions."

The Aite Group Trade Surveillance Compliance Market Impact Report, authored by
Danielle Tierney and Sang Lee, is based on interviews with companies
representing the buy and sell side of the compliance technology marketplace,
including global compliance technology vendors and large sell-side brokers.
