Gulf Coast HIDTA Selects ISYS Search Software to Provide Intelligence Analysts With Desktop and Network Search Capabilities

DENVER - Sept. 14, 2004 - ISYS Search Software (, a global supplier of enterprise search solutions for business and government, today announced that the Gulf Coast HIDTA (High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area) has selected ISYS:desktop to provide its intelligence analysts with desktop and network search capabilities.

With jurisdiction over 20 counties in Alabama, Louisiana and Mississippi, the Gulf Coast HIDTA's charter is to measurably reduce both the impact of Gulf Coast drug trafficking on the rest of the United States, as well as violent drug trafficking within its three-state area. Critical to success in this mission are its team of intelligence professionals and their ability to access, analyze and act on information that resides across multiple internal sources. The Gulf Coast HIDTA selected ISYS:desktop to provide this functionality.

"Given the large amount of data we maintain on individual desktops, networks and records databases, we required a sophisticated search and retrieval tool that would enable our intelligence analysts to quickly and easily access relevant information," said Don Petty, Director of Intelligence, Gulf Coast HIDTA. "We determined that ISYS:desktop was more than capable of satisfying this need."

ISYS:desktop provides the Gulf Coast HIDTA with sixth-generation search technology that is easy to deploy, use and maintain. The software comes standard with multiple query types, including command-based, natural language and fielded for searching metadata. ISYS:desktop's Synonym Rings feature enables users to assign associations between standard words and industry-specific terminology, or in the case of intelligence analysts, between a person's name and their known aliases. ISYS:desktop also offers several linguistic features, such as stemming, wildcards and 'Sounds Like' or 'Starts With' search features.
