The Monitoring and Audit System (MAS) from 3ami has been developed over the last decade with a number of police forces and has proved to be so effective at identifying and proving cases of police corruption and inappropriate behaviour that its use is now rapidly spreading to other organisations wishing to protect their intellectual property and commerciallysensitive information. Here in the UK, police forces face severe cuts to their funding which is driving them to identify wider uses for the systems they use. MAS collects data about activity performed on every device on which it is installed, which is then sent to a central secure server, providing a vast amount of information about what police officers and staff are doing at any point in the day.
