Web-IQ powers Darknet Search in Paliscope

We are proud to announce that the Safer Society Group from Sweden has chosen Web-IQ to power the Darknet Search in their latest product Paliscope.
Paliscope is software for online investigators that integrates well with partners like Web-IQ, Project Arachnid, Griffeye, PimEyes and CameraForensics.

“The Darknet is a difficult and very volatile place to investigate. The integration between Paliscope and Web-IQ allows investigators to access, search and investigate the Darknet as part of their ‘normal’ investigation process. Together with the Historical archive, this collaboration has the potential to be a game changer for all ICAC investigators around the world.” - Christian Berg (CEO of Safe Society and Paliscope)

DarkCloud package

The Darknet Search Engine

The anonymity of the Darknet has proven to attract criminal minds that discuss subjects and opportunities that threaten your organisation, country or city.
Is the Darknet still a blind spot for your organisation?

We continously monitor, harvest and structure data from Tor Hidden Services and popular Darknet markets into actionable intelligence and make these indexed datasets available to Law Enforcement, corporates and (local) governments.

Our mission

We believe that Law Enforcement Agencies should have the best online intelligence tools and data available to help them in their fight against serious crimes. Thereby making the world a better place.

Web-IQ was founded in 2011 after we encountered images of child sexual abuse during a routine crawl of the Web. Since then, we became determined to invest our expertise and technology in the fight against child abuse and other high impact crimes.

Web-IQ is an active private sector partner of the Virtual Global Taskforce: the international collaboration of law enforcement agencies, non-government organisations and industry partners to protect children from online and offline sexual exploitation.

In 2017, Web-IQ received the Mr. Gonsalves Award from Minister Grapperhaus of Security and Justice for our Voyager technology and our contribution in the fight against human trafficking.
