We currently offer a suite of software applications for integrating, visualizing and analyzing the world's information. We support many kinds of data including structured, unstructured, relational, temporal and geospatial. We are also strongly committed to building technology that can support a rigorous legal and policy regime that protects privacy and civil liberties. Our products are built for real analysis with a focus on security, scalability, ease of use and collaboration.
