History[edit]

NICE was founded in 1986 as Neptune Intelligence Computer Engineering (NICE) by 7 Israeli former army colleagues. The company initially focused on developing technology for security and defense applications, but soon refocused their efforts on civilian applications, mainly for contact center, financial services and business intelligence markets.[6]

In 2017, an unprotected Amazon S3 storage device, accessed by an employee of NICE Systems, was breached causing “As many as 14 million records” from Verizon-Wireless to be compromised.
