147. surveillance, software and backdoors: PTECH software
Ptech is (or actually was, they've renamed themselves to "Go Agile" - www.goagile.com ) a small software firm that makes highly specialized software that is used by large corporations and government agencies to monitor data traffic on their computer networks - including inter-business traffic - for the purpose of detecting anything that is going wrong, or is somehow out of the ordinary. This can be used to optimize business processes, but also to detect suspicious financial transactions. Another big name in that field is "Promis", which has been around since the 70's or so.
More recent incarnations of this type of software can be instructed to automatically intervene or take action in some other way.
Ptech is financed by Saudis with financial ties to terrorism.

Indira Singh testimony and interviews, details about Ptech:

IS: (...) their financier, their funders, their investors, were all Saudis. (...) one Saudi has been placed on the US Terror List, October 12, 2001.
(...)someone who has been placed on the US Terror List is key funder, angel investor, to a company whose software is utilized at the highest levels of almost every government and military and defense organization in this country, including the Secret Service, the FBI, the Department of Defense, the House of Representatives, the Treasury Department, the IRS, the US Navy, the US Air Force, and, last but not least, the Federal Aviation Administration.
(...)
they were in use at IBM, of course, and the top accounting firms, and even in the FBI, in Miter.
Miter is a large company that does specialized technology for defense and intelligence.
(...)
not only was Yassan Khadi was an investor but that a Yacob Mertza was on the board of directors and he had been the subject of Operation Green Quest, many of his Herndon, Virginia vehicles and companies,and financing companies, had been raided in March 2002. And, again, that Mertza was on the board of directors.
(...)
"...(Ptech) is a CIA clandestine op on the level of Iran-Contra. And I have reason to believe this because Care International that was mentioned in one of the slides is a renamed version of Alkhifah which was the funding arm for WTC 93. Prior to Alkhifah it was called Maktab Al-Khidamat, which is the funding arm for the Afghani Mujahideen. It was how the monies got to Osama bin Laden through the Pakistani ISI."
