Fusion-Q, Cogia partner on web, social media monitoring

Summary:Fusion-Q will offer Cogia's semantic monitoring platform to its roster of government and private sector defense firms.

Dallas, Texas based firm Fusion-Q says it will partner with Germany's Cogia Intelligence to offer more comprehensive web and social media monitoring for companies.

Market research and competitive intelligence is important to every organization competing for dollars. Fusion-Q, the division of All-Q-Tell known for its security expertise in the government and commercial sectors, hopes that the Frankfurt-based company's technology can help it get its own competitive advantage.

Cogia's semantic monitoring platform automatically mines the Web and social media networks for relevant data in nine different languages, from English to Arabic. The use case ranges from companies working to prevent fraud to governments working to nip threats in the bud.

The deal brings Cogia's monitoring tech to Fusion-Q's customers in the security and intelligence industry across the globe. It's in line with the company's recent moves to partner with Stealth Monitoring (video surveillance) and acquire Seventh Knight (IT security for defense).
