Finding intelligence and threat actors in a mountain of data can be time-consuming for investigators carrying out web investigations. But by using visual intelligence tools, the time needed to close an investigation can be greatly reduced.

Image analysis and facial recognition technology have been effective in reducing and solving crimes. Visual intelligence capabilities are increasingly being used in law enforcement agencies, national security, financial institutions, and corporates global security operation teams in their investigations.

One of the key methods for visual intelligence is as follows: an image is captured and uploaded to the internet or by using specific tools, where it is mapped and compared to a large database of other images with attention paid to prominent and any identifying features.
