Open source data is exactly what it sounds like – information that’s open for anyone to access on the internet. Huge volumes of open source data are available online, often for free, and it's very useful when you’re trying to find out more about an individual, a company, or their connections. Examples of open source data include corporate records, media reporting, open social media and domain registration information.
One of the problems with using open source data is the amount of manual work involved for investigators. The quantity of data available can be overwhelming and it can be hard to find the most relevant sources to your investigation. High data volumes also make the connections that open source data reveals hard to spot.
Videris is designed to help investigators overcome this problem and make the most of open source data.
Videris does not automate entire investigations, but rather augments the ability of the user. We use sophisticated technologies which make use of intelligent automation, robotic process automation and natural language processing to do this.
We believe that the nuance and judgement required in research and investigations are best left to the user.
This means that Videris offers special tools to allow the user to get to the answer they need faster, but doesn’t make decisions on their behalf.
What Our Clients Say
Previously our team spent 70% of its time searching for data, and only 30% understanding it. With Videris, those numbers have been reversed.
Major European Bank
Videris has allowed us to take on clients and assignments which we would otherwise have to decline or outsource. Elsewhere, investigations that would previously take us days can now be done in hours.
