AML and Financial Crime Investigations Software for Banking
Using open source information will transform your ability to resolve Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and other types of financial crime investigations. Videris brings consistency, transparency and accuracy to these investigations.
Why open source for AML software?
The cost of AML errors is growing. Failure to prevent money laundering can lead to huge fines, as well as reputational costs. At the same time, deadlines for reporting suspicious activity are getting shorter.
Compliance isn’t enough. As techniques for money laundering evolve, database cross-checks aren’t enough to stop it. Analysts need a real understanding of their subject and the context of their investigation.
Open source information is expanding. The amount of information in publicly available sources is constantly growing and can help you to develop a full understanding of an individual. Failing to use this public information is hard to defend to regulators.

A Success Story
“Over the past three years we have used Videris to map out global smuggling networks in support of [brand integrity] investigations. Our analysts from government investigative backgrounds immediately recognized Videris as a force-multiplier, making them many times more efficient at exploiting huge quantities of open source information. That efficiency is the only way our organization can do what it needs to. Features like native language searching and translation and near-automatic building of source packages to provide evidentiary chain contribute to this efficiency, but the ability to make connections over huge amounts of data, collected over a long period of time, is where Videris has really made a difference, allowing our team to build out global networks that would never have otherwise been discoverable through open source information. It’s no exaggeration to say that we have built our business on Videris.”
