Searchspace introduces V5 of its leading Anti Money Laundering software

London and New York - 31st October 2005. Searchspace has released V5 of its market leading Anti Money Laundering solution taking its power of detection to another level. Searchspace examines all transactions while minimizing the number of false positives and delivering the industry's highest quality alerts. It has been built on the back of over 10 years experience of delivering AML solutions to global, national and regional financial institutions around the world.

Today Searchspace monitors almost 500 million accounts and 300 million daily transactions in the fight against global money laundering and financial crime. The product uses dynamic risk rating of all transactions in order to build an understanding of each customer as an individual. Uniquely the Searchspace Operational Data Store allows fast management and analysis of all transactions stretching back over months and in some cases years. The dynamic nature and rich catchments of the analytics lead to lower false positives and insights not available through manual process or rules based products.
