Feb 11, 2010 (04:02 PM EST)

Enhancements to leading intelligence software means more deployment options, better combat effectiveness and broader applications within defense community

MCLEAN, Va., Feb. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- i2, the leading provider of intelligence and investigation management software, today announced a set of customized enhancements to its signature software application, Analyst Notebook, as part of strategic partnership with the United States special operations community that will mean greater effectiveness and versatility for thousands of existing users.  

"Special Operators continue to upgrade to the most recent versions of i2 software," said Tom O'Neil, i2's senior vice president of Sales, "This update has given them enhanced capability to move the decision point to the left and arm the human sensor at their point of need while retaining the same outstanding Operations Security that attracted them to our product in the first place."

The desktop version of i2's software has been available with multiple license validation technologies for several years, including a hardware key version and a software key version. With this upgrade, the special operations community has decided to adopt the software key version because of its ability to significantly reduce vulnerability to single point of failure incidents.

"Our primary goal is to bring our customers new technologies that will enable them to accelerate their mission. We recognize what a significant customer we have in the special operations community and how the urgency of their needs — with critical missions ongoing overseas — don't conveniently tie into product release dates.  By expediting several crucial enhancements that will be standard on the new version of the software later this year, they can begin taking advantage of them immediately," said Guillaume Tissot, i2's VP Product Marketing.
