NetWitness originally developed its technology products, which combat advanced cyber-security threats, for limited use as a tactical network monitoring program for the U.S. intelligence community. When the company decided to expand into the commercial and international markets, it released a core part of its intellectual property as freeware (NetWitness Investigator), which has become the standard for advanced threat analysis for more than 5,000 organizations in 196 countries. The company now serves customers in retail and banking as well as government and law enforcement.
