SS8 and Ocient Partner to Empower Law Enforcement with Needle-in-the-Haystack Insights at Petabyte Scale

Identifying new patterns of life across network metadata, communication information, geo-location and mobile activity 10x-50x faster

MILPITAS, Calif. and CHICAGO, Illinois – November 30, 2021SS8 Networks, a leader in Lawful Intercept, Lawful Intelligence and Monitoring Center platforms today announced a collaboration with Ocient, a data analytics solutions company enabling law enforcement agencies (LEAs) to harness petabytes of data for lawful intelligence in interactive time.

When conducting law enforcement investigations, speed is of the essence. The difference between detecting criminal activity in the digital space in seconds versus hours or days has a massive impact on addressing crime and protecting public safety. Together, SS8 and Ocient provide LEAs a highly scalable analytics platform and visualization engine capable of ingesting 10’s of millions of records per second and returning actionable intelligence in seconds. The partnership enables LEA use cases across:

  • Lawful Intelligence Gathering
  • Cyber Security
  • Network Monitoring
  • Financial Crime
  • Dark Web Crime Investigation

“We couldn’t be more excited to partner with Ocient on this hyper-scale network visibility solution for our law enforcement and government customers,” said Dr. Keith Bhatia, CEO of SS8 Networks. “It’s more important than ever to deliver high-performance solutions at scale while weeding out the noise across disparate data types and sources. Ocient brings efficiency to the complex problem of bandwidth growth with a solution enabling LEAs to better protect citizens from digital crimes and security breaches.”

SS8 and Ocient enable LEAs to create “digital fingerprints” across historic and real-time data for forensic analysis. From location-based intelligence to 5G and Internet of Things (IoT) data sources, LEAs can not only collect meaningful intelligence, but also run rapid analytics on massive data sets to achieve new levels of visibility for lawful intercept.

The SS8 and Ocient joint solution also enables limitless scale analytics while delivering a low cost of ownership. LEAs can leverage full resolution data sets with typically one-fifth of the storage footprint of copy-based data management solutions and joint customers benefit from simple and efficient deployment with SS8 and Ocient experts enabling every point in the data flow.

“It’s been a true pleasure collaborating with the team at SS8 to deliver hyper-scale network visibility monitoring and threat detection,” said Chris Gladwin, CEO of Ocient. “From network metadata collection and optimization through to ingest and insights, this collaboration combines the best of SS8’s LI platform with the unprecedented speed and limitless scale of Ocient’s enterprise data warehouse platform to enhance public safety around the world.”
