Nasdaq and Digital Reasoning Establish Exclusive Alliance to Deliver Holistic
Next Generation Surveillance and Monitoring Technology

NEW YORK and NASHVILLE, Tenn., 2016-02-23 13:22 CET (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nasdaq
(Nasdaq:NDAQ) and Digital Reasoning, a leader in cognitive computing, have
announced a strategic alliance to offer next generation, holistic surveillance
technology to the global capital markets, including the buy-side, brokers,
regulators and exchanges. Digital Reasoning?s eComms monitoring for proactive
compliance and Nasdaq?s industry leading and award-winning SMARTS Surveillance
solutions will deliver a unified approach through the integration of trade
surveillance alerts with natural language processing and machine
intelligence-based technology all within a single interface. In addition,
Nasdaq has participated in Digital Reasoning?s Series D investment round.

?Digital Reasoning is a true disruptor in the financial technology space,? said
Valerie Bannert-Thurner, Head of Risk & Surveillance Solutions, Nasdaq. ?Our
partnership with Digital Reasoning will not only enable us to strengthen our
current surveillance solution but also allow us to utilize the best
capabilities and data sourced from each product to deliver monitoring
technology that will allow firms to take a truly holistic approach to
surveillance across structured and unstructured data and strengthen their
monitoring and detection capabilities.?

Digital Reasoning?s sophisticated natural language processing and machine
intelligence-based technology is able to understand how people communicate by
analyzing the context, content and relationships within human communications,
while semantically revealing concealed insights ? enabling firms to better
understand the intent and meaning behind specific behaviors. The capabilities
encompassed within Digital Reasoning?s platform, when combined with the data
and detection capabilities delivered by SMARTS, offer immediate benefits to the
surveillance community. Surveillance analysts can leverage insights across
communications and trade data to automatically prioritize areas for evaluation
and enable accurate and rapid investigations.

?As an existing user of both vendors, the strategic agreement between Nasdaq
and Digital Reasoning presents an exciting development across the UBS market
surveillance tool set,? said Kirsty Everett, Global Head of Monitoring &
Oversight at UBS. ?By combining existing trade surveillance alerting with
communications data, it should quickly and holistically provide the
surveillance analyst with specific electronic communications associated with
potential market manipulation and/or conduct risk issues.?

In addition to contextualizing current alerting processes, the partnership will
drive a paradigm shift in behavior detection to identify heretofore concealed
activities, conduct investigations much more quickly, and continue Nasdaq?s
leadership in establishing and enabling industry best practices and standards
in surveillance.

?The application of machine intelligence to identify inappropriate activity in
digital communications greatly boosts positive predictive values over
traditional methods, and it brings a radical new technological approach to the
field of behavior analysis,? said Marten den Haring, Chief Product Officer,
Digital Reasoning. ?By partnering with Nasdaq, we can raise the bar in signal
detection across disparate systems and apply deep understanding of context to
assess risk, without adding workload to the already burdened surveillance

With over 20 years of experience as the industry benchmark for surveillance
platforms, Nasdaq SMARTS technology powers surveillance and compliance for over
40 marketplaces, 12 regulators and 110 market participants across 65 markets
