The Janes stamp of trust means supplying our customers with

Janes Intara brings together all of the assured
intelligence, across military capabilities and order of battle, security
events, equipment, markets, forecasts and defence manufacturers that Janes has
developed over our 120-year legacy. All intelligence datasets have been
interconnected allowing you to work across traditional domains as well as
datasets, regions, organisations and countries.
Founded in 2009, RWR Advisory Group
is a Washington, DC-based open-source intelligence, research, and advisory firm
that specializes in providing data and analysis for government and private
sector clients managing risk and threat factors related to economic and
financial statecraft, national security, and political and regulatory risk.
During the past 10 years, RWR has pioneered the use of new research and
analytic techniques to improve due diligence and threat assessment concerning
the risks related to foreign actors and their respective entities. These
companies have faced new scrutiny across a range of risk factors related to
national and economic security, defense, the malign use of economic and
financial statecraft, geopolitics, human rights as well as in more traditional
areas of concern.
