Transform your open-source search capability using targeted automation

Manual open-source checks through search engines create too many, and often unrelated, results. Our solution offers highly sophisticated tools to filter results extremely precisely, saving up to 85% of your analysts’ time.

Standard search engines are designed to maximise sales for advertisers; when used for KYC, vetting or intelligence purposes they inevitably generate huge amounts of false positives.

Vitally important information

Both the FCA and the Gambling Commission have mandated the importance of open source intelligence in effective compliance checks.

Too many results

If search parameters are not targeted tightly, open-source intelligence can become extremely labour intensive, as too many results need to be reviewed.

Missed opportunities

If searches are not refined, key nuggets of information are overlooked, creating operational inefficiencies and lost opportunities. As organisations often have a finite amount of time, it is easy to miss key data points if your approach is not configured to filter out the noise.

Maximise open-source search accuracy with automation tools

Our data agnostic platform, Scout®, includes open-source search tools that allow very targeted, standardised, searches that enable you to find the right information faster, in more detail, and give you the time to uncover more hidden connections.

Create, save, and update open-source search workflows with any number of search terms, filter permutations and advanced parameters.

Analyse by advanced parameters, including proximity, timescale, document type and country specific search location for even greater accuracy.

Proximity tools enable you to target only those results linked to within a particular radius of your search query.

Identify risk to avoid reputational damage or regulatory breaches by linking open-source data to people, companies, email addresses, addresses, phone numbers or vehicles of concern.

Standardised, concise reports with all sources referenced, enable your analysts and investigators to make better decisions, faster.

Real time OSint allows your operational team to make proactive decisions about the risks presented in any given scenario. With Scout being operable upon handheld and desktop devices, you have the ability to assess what the world knows about a given concern when you most need that information.
