NOVATO, CA – November 27, 2012 — Dragnet Solutions, Inc. announced today that it has integrated ATTUS Technologies, Inc.’s WatchDOG® Pro into its Accelerated Insight(SM) identity verification service for financial institutions. Built on Dragnet’s proprietary discovery system, Accelerated Insight is a real-time identity verification service that helps institutions confidently say yes to more qualified applicants, including those with limited financial histories. Using Accelerated Insight, banks and credit unions can better differentiate customers, grow revenues and prevent fraud, while complying with such regulations as Know Your Customer (KYC), the Red Flags Rule, and now U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC).

WatchDOG Pro, available from ATTUS Technologies, a division of Computer Services, Inc. (CSI) (OTCQX: CSVI), is an industry-leading automated OFAC verification solution. WatchDOG Pro screens entity and individual names against OFAC lists that are updated in near real time, providing institutions with an easy and efficient method for monitoring OFAC compliance. It compares customer and vendor lists against multiple watch lists, including OFAC’s Specially Designated Nationals (SDN) List and Sanctioned Countries List. By law, financial institutions in the U.S. must check OFAC lists before opening accounts for individuals or businesses.

“Our goal is to provide financial institutions with a comprehensive real-time customer-analytics solution for account opening,” said Greg Cote, president and CEO of Dragnet Solutions, Inc. “By integrating ATTUS’ WatchDOG Pro into Accelerated Insight, we’re able to offer a complete, best-of-breed solution to bankers. Now banks and credit unions can verify identity and check the OFAC list with a single real-time service, streamlining the account-opening process while ensuring compliance with federal laws and regulations.”

Compliance demands continue to grow in light of regulatory scrutiny, and for many institutions, managing OFAC compliance remains a very manual process. With the integration of WatchDOG Pro, Accelerated Insight provides the automation that banks and credit unions need to improve efficiency.

“Today’s financial institution leaders face the complex issue of growing profitability while minimizing risk, especially in relation to managing compliance with ever-changing government watch lists,” said Tom Fedell, president and general manager of ATTUS Technologies. “By partnering with Dragnet Solutions, we can alleviate many of the compliance burdens by automating the watch list screening process, which allows banks and credit unions to bring revenue-generating accounts online more quickly and confidently.”
