Actimize Ranks Highly on Deloitte Technology Fast 500 EMEA List for Third Consecutive Year

Transactional Risk Management Expert Recognized by Deloitte and Bank Systems & Technology for Innovative Solutions and Outstanding Growth

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - December 6, 2007) - Actimize, a leading provider of transactional risk management software for the financial services industry and a NICE Systems company, today announced that it ranked number 59 on the 2007 Deloitte Technology Fast 500 EMEA, a ranking of the 500 fastest growing technology companies in Europe, Middle East and Africa. This is the third consecutive year that Actimize has placed highly on the list, with a percentage revenue growth of 2,441 percent over the last five years.

"We're very excited to be recognized by Deloitte's Technology Fast 500 EMEA Fast program for three years in a row now," says David Sosna, CEO of Actimize. "This program validates the excitement we have for our software space, delivering cutting-edge transactional risk management solutions to financial institutions around the globe."

"Making the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 EMEA ranking is a testament to a company's commitment to technology," Eric Morgain, partner in charge of Deloitte's Technology Fast 500 EMEA program. "With its 2,441 percent growth rate over five years, Actimize has proven that its leadership has vision and determination."

The Technology Fast 500 list is compiled from Deloitte's EMEA Technology Fast 50 programs, nominations submitted directly to the Fast 500, and public company database research. To qualify for the Fast 500, entrants must have had 2002 operating revenues of at least EUR 50,000 and 2006 operating revenues of at least EUR 800,000. Entrants must also be public or private companies headquartered in EMEA and must be a "technology company," defined as a company that owns proprietary technology that contributes to a significant portion of the company's operating revenues; or devotes a significant proportion of revenues to the research and development of technology. Using other companies' technology in a unique way does not qualify.

In addition, last month, Actimize's Employee Fraud Prevention Solution placed 16 in the Top 25 of Bank Technology News' 6th Annual Innovators Award Rankings. The Top 25 includes the most innovative individuals, companies and technologies impacting the banking technology industry.
