Altia Open Source Internet

An all-encompassing cloud-based open-source intelligence solution, allowing all data to be securely ingested, processed and analysed for investigations.

A reliable and secure platform that enables victims, witnesses and partners to easily upload data from any digital device, thereby contributing seamlessly and significantly to the success of investigations.

Why Open-Source Internet?

Why Open-Source Internet?

Reduce the time taken, enhance efficiency, and accelerate your decision-making process with the ability to capture open-source data quickly and securely. Data is automatically embedded within a case structure, accessible from any device connected to the internet.

Ease of use

With minimal training, investigators can now self-serve, which significantly reduces their workload during digital investigations. The system also offers automated cross-case linking, promoting collaborative working, and minimising operational duplication through auto-matching. Additionally, colleagues and partners can be alerted when similar data is gathered.

Search functions

We offer comprehensive internet and intelligence investigation services that can gather evidence from pages, videos, and images on both the open and dark web. Our advanced scanning technology allows us to monitor internet searches for specific keywords to aid in online surveillance or identify potential threats.


All actions are recorded and reviewed, forming a verified audit trail of virus-checked, encrypted, and validated data. This data is stored securely and complies with all data capture and retention regulations. Sensitive investigations can be restricted to certain roles, individuals, teams, or departments, ensuring access is only granted to those who need it.

Evidential compliance

We prioritise the safety and privacy of all evidential data by implementing default security measures and encryption. Every piece of evidence is hashed to maintain its integrity and indexed for efficient searching. With just a click, you can generate court-ready documents that can be securely transferred to lawyers or authorised third parties, ensuring compliance with regulations.

Transforming the ability of Investigators to tackle current and future risks and problems, including threats to public safety, by providing a digital Investigations solution that is simple, powerful, secure and affordable.

Why Community?

Why Community?

Our platform offers an unparalleled level of security for uploading digital evidence, empowering victims, witnesses, and partners to contribute seamlessly to investigations and achieve successful outcomes.

Ease of use

Easily upload evidence directly from any digital device or source by using the direct portal upload to embed the data instantly within a case management system. This eliminates the need for officers to physically retrieve evidence from devices, saving time and cutting costs.

Increased evidence capture

Encourage the public to supply information and promptly respond to incidents with public appeals to efficiently gather data from all individuals and groups. This will aid in reducing the digital forensic backlog as victims and witnesses can send evidence directly to the police without having to surrender their personal devices.

Anonymous reporting

Our system allows for anonymous reporting, giving users complete confidence that their identity cannot be traced through the data they submit. This feature also empowers them to provide information that they may not have otherwise shared on any given topic.


Deployment agnostic approach – available on a public cloud, private cloud, or local server. All data which is submitted is securely stored, compliant with legislation, within a case management system from where it can be easily triaged and developed for actionable use.

The public can submit relevant digital information with confidence that it will be competently addressed while ensuring optimal efficiency through the investigative process.
