Criminal Investigation

Complex Investigative Efforts

Criminal intelligence is a vital component of any law enforcement agency, which entails complicated investigative efforts and investigation tools for cyber forensics. Since more and more threat actors and persons of interest are using the surface, deep and dark, as well as social media and online platforms to leverage their criminal activities, extracting crucial insights from web data has become crucial for solving and preventing crimes. However, this data extraction process is tedious and time-consuming, but critical to reveal and discover links between threat actors, identity locations and generate full reports on the criminal investigation.

Instant Access to Online Big Data

Criminal investigations depend more and more on big data analysis using an AI-powered WEBINT platform to handle a wide range of sources, including publicly-accessible data on the open, deep and dark web. Only this way can any word or phrase, which might provide a crucial lead, become part of intelligent insights.
Our WEBINT platform, which extracts deep web data, connects the platform users to thousands of sources unveiling oceans of data in a simplified user interface. It will enable law enforcement to stay ahead of threat actors by supporting end-to-end, full web spectrum investigations.

Automated Data Analysis

Criminal investigations center around finding and proving connections between suspects, events, and criminal acts. Increasingly, this relies on retrieving and understanding data, ranging from unstructured data to public records and structured information.
Law enforcement officers, detectives, and investigators need to transform raw data into useful and shareable intelligence. With automated web data extraction platform combined with enhanced analytics, investigators quickly see patterns of relationships as they develop.

Visualization of Criminal Networks

To get inside a criminal network, data is automatically collected, analyzed, and visualized. Based on the objectives (set by law enforcement), connections and their links strengths are visualized. Advanced algorithms calculate a range of measures in order to analyze the graph for meaningful insights. The degree visualization feature indicates the number of ‘one hop’ (one degree) connections between network nodes.
More critical details can be easily identified, expanding some nodes based on centrality measurement, calculated by analyzing mutual nodes, engagement or other contributing factors.

Identity Resolution Simplified

Only one lead is required for the reconstruction process. The WEBINT platform searches a wide range of data sources to find the digital footprint for identity resolution. Once mapped and visualized, the results provide locations, images, details, and online presence data.
Further analysis also provides insights regarding specific and selected target(s). Cross-analysis shows key connections, identifies related key targets, and delivers valuable intelligence. The solution filters and selects data to produce automated reports listing the required target details.

Leverage Your Investigations

Extracting Web Data Quickly and Effortlessly

Collecting and analyzing huge volumes of web data in a timely manner without automation is tedious, time-consuming, and expensive. Our platform extracts publicly-accessible data from the surface, deep, and dark web, as well as social media and online platforms, automatically for analysis.

Unveiling Criminal Connections and Networks

For any investigation, understanding activities and connections is essential. Our platform analyzes the extracted big data to reveal and identify relevant links. The mapped data also shows the various degrees of separation in a network.

Predicting Criminal Activities

Since the platform harnesses all web data across the public surface, deep, and dark web, the extracted data can also be used for predictive analysis using NLP and pattern recognition. Based on that analysis, law enforcement will be able to prevent certain criminal activities.

Finding Digital Footprints

For any investigation, understanding activities and connections is essential. Our platform analyzes the extracted big data to reveal and identify relevant links. The mapped data also shows the various degrees of separation in a network.
