You've seen the headlines. Financial firms are fined millions of dollars when just one employee does something they shouldn't. It can be as serious as insider trading or as seemingly innocent as an inappropriate instant message. Keeping track of who is saying, doing, and trading what is a pretty daunting task for compliance officers, especially with the explosion in the volume and variety of data produced by communications and trading platforms.

Our multi-tenant cloud processes 300 million messages daily and stores about 90 billion archived objects and we are looking to grow significantly in the next two years. That’s where you come in.
