Nuix, a global technology provider has launched Nuix USG – a government services subsidiary. Nuix has supplied digital investigations, incident response, and eDiscovery technologies to U.S. Government agencies for more than 10 years, and has recently added cybersecurity and intelligence capabilities.
Nuix USG will be headed up by Keith Lowry, Senior Vice President, who was previously a law enforcement officer and High-Technology Crime Unit detective with the City of San Jose California. Kevin Frank, Al Nieves, Tim O’Rourke and Jesse Rauch will make up the rest of the team.
Nuix USG was born out of the company’s U.S. Federal and Public Sector practice, formed in 2014.
Protection against ransomware, a type of cyber attack that holds users information hostage for money or other goods, will be a key focus area for the unit. The group will also work on solutions for big data analytics and incident response.
Nuix has made some recent partnerships on the analytics front. This month the company announced that it would work with Teradata on an enterprise analytics solution that integrates Nuix’s data processing and indexing engine with Teradata’s Aster Analytics. With the integration, users can structure unstructured data and feed it into the analytics engine to find patterns and other insights. The initial customer set for integration will be financial services, although the company says that customers in investigation, litigation, cybersecurity, intelligence, and information governance can also use Teradata Aster Analytics.
