Security Solutions International (SSI) and Hazard Threat Analysis Ltd. (HTA) to Launch Subscription Intelligence Service

With National Public Radio Reporting This Week That the FBI Has Only 33 Arabic Speakers on Staff, the Subscription Intelligence Service Could Be the Answer to US Homeland Security Intelligence Needs

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - November 19, 2007) - Miami-based Security Solutions International (SSI) and Hazard Threat Analysis Ltd. (HTA) (Israel) have announced today they will be jointly launching a new subscription intelligence service. The aim of this service is to provide law enforcement and First Responders with crucial and previously unavailable intelligence information, essential in combating Jihad-related terrorist activity. The name of the Service is the HS - BOOST (Homeland Security - Bulleting of Open Source Threats) and will be available to approved Federal, State and Local agencies on an Eyes Only basis.

Gadi Aviran, CEO of HTA, is one of Israel's leading authorities in the field of Explosive Ordinance Disposal (EOD) and Improvised Explosive Devises (IED) Disposal. Before founding HTA in 2004, Mr. Aviran spent nearly a decade serving as the head of the Technical Intelligence Analysis desk in the Production Division of the Israel Defense Force's Military Intelligence directorate.

According to Mr. Aviran, "We offer up-to-date analysis of terrorism threat by collecting, translating and analyzing open-source intelligence material. We believe in 360-degree analysis -- by investing in careful, multi-layered assessments based on an understanding of the nuances of the Jihadi Web, we provide accurate, timely and highly actionable intelligence reports and investigation supporting tools."

SSI President Henry Morgenstern added; "Through the HS - BOOST we will now be able to provide Local, State and Federal security professionals with critical intelligence information they have been lacking until the present time. SSI and HTA are together committed to helping US First Responders win the war on terror and now we can disseminate up-to-the-minute intelligence threat analyses to those who most need it."
