New Accelerators Increase Public Safety by Securely Sharing Data Between Existing Government Information Systems

London, UK – February 24 2003 – iWay Software, an Information Builders company that accelerates business integration, is launching a series of technology solutions that help government and public-sector organisations implement homeland security applications that leverage existing disparate systems. Specifically, iWay Software now provides accelerator solutions to address four common security issues currently faced by government organisations – bioterrorism detection and response; transportation, border, and port security; secure information sharing; and international student tracking (SEVIS).

iWay Software is the only company that addresses the requirement for vertical integration between different levels of government to support the critical domestic security mission.

“Post 9/11, the government has been under severe pressure to rapidly evolve IT standards and strategies to efficiently track potential domestic security threats,” said John Senor, President of iWay Software. “So we are pioneering creative solution accelerators that enable organisations to aggressively comply with public-sector mandates for the time-sensitive exchange of data, delivery of critical information, and notification of exception conditions. We have a proven track record within government. Over the last 27-years we have helped every agency within the federal government at some point with one or more of their IT systems. We understand the infrastructure, and we have the solutions to tie it together departmentally and globally.”

Solutions to Accelerate Integration of Government Systems
Thanks to technologies that can XML-enable practically any information system without extensive custom coding, iWay's Integration Superhighway facilitates the collaborative exchange of information without compromising security. iWay's rich infrastructure furnishes the foundation for the fastest, easiest, and most cost-effective integration of government solutions available today, including:

• iWay Bioterrorism Response Suite, an integrated solution for early detection of biological threats that collects and analyses public-health data in diverse formats from many different sources.

• iWay Integrated Justice Suite, a solution that removes impediments to collaboration among federal, state, and local law enforcement and judicial agencies by seamlessly integrating existing information systems and providing Web - and e-mail-based information delivery.

• iWay Transportation, Port, and Border Security Suite, a Web-based system using graphically oriented GIS-based mapping and analysis technologies to track and report suspicious maritime vessels.

• iWay SEVIS Compliance Suite, integration technology that enables higher education institutions to access, integrate, transform, and report foreign student information in specified XML-format to the Immigration and Naturalisation Service (INS).

iWay has already achieved successes in key regions such as New York City and the State of Missouri with components of the iWay Bioterrorism Response Suite. The company is now actively engaged with numerous states and major municipalities to supply technology for similar homeland security solutions.

These suites are part of the iWay Security Exchange, a solution set that solves many problems related to secure information sharing in support of homeland security initiatives.
