NICE to Enhance Security Offering With the Acquisition of Lamda Communication Networks Ltd

Unique Satellite Communication Interception Technology Complements NiceTrack Comprehensive Capabilities for Helping Law Enforcement, Internal Security, and Intelligence Agencies Fight Crime and Terror

RA’ANANA, Israel, May 25, 2010/PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — NICE Systems Ltd. (NASDAQ: NICE), a leading global provider of advanced solutions that enable enterprises and security organizations to extract Insight from Interactions, transactions and surveillance to drive business performance and ensure safety, today announced that it has acquired Lamda Communication Networks Ltd., a provider of satellite communications interception technology based in Israel. Lamda’s unique technology addresses the growing demand for satellite communication interception capabilities and enables law enforcement, internal security, and intelligence agencies to fight crime and terror more effectively. The company does not anticipate material impact on its financial results, as a result of the acquisition, in 2010.

The addition of Lamda’s satellite communication interception technology will enhance NICE’s existing capabilities and complement the current offering of advanced applications such as monitoring, traffic analysis and voice analytics. It constitutes a flexible, software-based platform for satellite communications interception, with automatic analysis capabilities and advanced system management at a relatively cost-efficient infrastructure deployment. The technology is the culmination of twenty years of domain expertise and the team’s experience in building satellite systems for customers worldwide. This transaction will further enhance the comprehensive NiceTrack solutions portfolio.

The NiceTrack solutions portfolio provides interception, delivery, monitoring, collection and advanced analysis of telecommunication interactions and generates comprehensive intelligence. The solution provides a comprehensive suite of operational tools and applications, which ensure that meaningful, mission-critical information is delivered on time to security decision makers and operational staff, enabling them to detect threats and achieve a fast and appropriate response and mitigate threats.

“NICE is committed to delivering leading-edge technology and providing the most complete and advanced end-to-end, security solutions to our growing base of customers worldwide,” said Israel Livnat, President of the NICE Security Group. “The acquisition of Lamda strengthens NICE’s market leading position and will enable us to address the growing demand for satellite communications interception as part of the security solution deployment.”

“NICE’s security business is an important component of NICE’s growth strategy and we are committed to continue to develop it. As we continue to win and implement large scale security deals, and as we see positive momentum in the market for our recently added situation management solution, we will continue to expand on these successes and to focus on this market and its opportunities,” added Zeevi Bregman, President and Chief Executive Officer of NICE.
