We are Blackdot

Blackdot Solutions makes Videris, a complete investigations platform for investigators and analysts leveraging open source intelligence.

Today, huge and growing volumes of publicly available data are accessible online. Increasing numbers of organisations are trying to make use of this information to address critical challenges; a process known as Open Source Intelligence, or OSINT. OSINT is used to fight major societal problems, such as terrorism, financial crime and human trafficking – but investigators often rely on manual processes to leverage OSINT for their investigations.

We created Videris to help professional investigators and analysts make sense of the wealth of data available on the internet. Videris helps investigators to work faster and gain better insights, combining internal data with external data, and ensuring organisations benefit from improved efficiency and effectiveness in the fight against crime.
