GeoShield moves to Microsoft Azure Government Cloud

GeoShield moves to Microsoft Azure Government Cloud

CyberTech’s GeoShield, a public safety platform for real-time crime analysis and intelligence-led policing, is now available through the Microsoft Azure Government Cloud.

Because the Microsoft cloud platform meets the FBI’s Criminal Justice Information Services security requirements, governments and public safety agencies now can get the GeoShield tools on a cloud platform secure enough for criminal justice data.

GeoShield’s C3 offers accessible crime analytics, simplified operational workflows and advanced search software through a single, scalable cloud-based deployment. The move to the cloud version will save agencies money, increase scalability and decrease the time for deployment and expansions.

CJIS-compliant cloud-based criminal justice solutions can help smaller jurisdictions access data from the FBI such as personal information, fingerprints, criminal histories and sex offender records.  The Azure Government cloud complies with the FBI’s CJIS strict security requirements for agencies that want to access to or store sensitive information on the cloud.
