French deal for Cambridge Intelligence
Technology from a Cambridge UK business that helps organisations fight fraud and terrorism has won its first major deal in mainland Europe.
Startup Cambridge Intelligence says the client is an industry-leading French company but is offering no further clues.
The cross-Channel contract represents the young company’s 10th significant new account for its network visualisation software, Keylines.
Founder and CEO Joe Parry, a speaker at the inaugural Nerve disruptive technology conference in Cambridge, said that as companies worldwide struggled with the challenge of Big Data management, they had been turning to Cambridge Intelligence to help make sense of their information.
Current users of KeyLines network visualisation software include organisations in the fields of law enforcement, military intelligence and information management – including the US Army and the UK Fraud Prevention Service.
Parry said: “This addition of a significant new customer in mainland Europe cements our position as one of the industry’s hottest new companies and will provide us with the opportunity to expand even further into a rapidly growing global market.”
In April, Cambridge Intelligence was added to Business Weekly’s Killer-50 list of the most disruptive science and technology companies in the region.
