We are focused on three areas of the Actionable Intelligence market: Customer Engagement Optimization, Security Intelligence, and Fraud, Risk and Compliance. We are very excited about the long term opportunities for Verint, as well as our near term prospects, reflected in our guidance for the current year of approximately $1.1 billion of revenue with 25% EBITDA margins on a non-GAAP basis.”
