Our key product, Fivecast Onyx, provides law enforcement and national security agencies, as well as private security, with the ability to explore unprecedented amounts of digital data from open-source platforms.
With its unique capability to monitor image, text and video – identifying key terms, phrases, quotes and objects – Fivecast Onyx can build links between networks, groups and similar entities providing a powerful tool to scan, detect and investigate potential safety and security risks.
Fivecast Onyx is powered by deep learning and builds knowledge over time through artificial intelligence, providing it with the ability to solve the most complex intelligence challenges.
Countering violent extremism
Every day, humans create a digital footprint that consists of trillions of megabytes of data. Within this mass of information are tiny fragments left by extremists as they seek to promote their ideals and connect others to the cause. For national security and intelligence agencies, this offers a powerful opportunity to anticipate and intercept potential issues before they transform into major incidents.
Fivecast Onyx enables those tasked with keeping our communities safe to analyze the masses of image, text and video data to find the ‘needle in the haystack’ and create meaningful connections, uncover networks and make actionable detections of threats.
Fivecast Onyx replaces manual monitoring and risk detection of bulk data, making it a significantly more efficient method of examining digital data. What would take analysts days, can now be achieved in just a few hours.
The digital age has facilitated the spread of criminal activity by creating an environment where information can be effortlessly shared with the touch of a button, and where tools are more readily available to aid lawbreakers’ activities.
This vast data footprint created by organised crime networks provides law enforcement authorities with an opportunity to extract crucial insights that are central to investigations.
Fivecast Onyx allows for ongoing, automated monitoring of organised crime groups, their members and associates. It can be tailored to monitor against a range of themes – drugs, weapons, violence or intimidation – identifying new linkages, highlighting threats and alerting potential flashpoints before they occur.
Fivecast Onyx can distil large networks to reveal specific lead information, such as drug courier or human trafficking routes. By automating time-consuming manual risk detection tasks, the platform frees up resources to do what they do best – disrupt organised crime.
A growing number of violent and disruptive incidents at major events has highlighted the significant risks that exist when large numbers of people gather in one place.
Community safety is paramount, and with the potential for activity or extremist activity to come from anywhere, having the ability to detect potential threats and protect the public is crucial.
Fivecast Onyx enables automated monitoring of large sets of data to identify a wide range of threats, such as group violence, protest activity or lone actor activity.
The platform broadens the reach of law enforcement, intelligence and event management teams, ensuring cost efficient, automated risk detection requiring a smaller investment of human capital.
Security vetting and insider threats
Fivecast works closely with a range of customers conducting complex security vetting assessments and investigations to identify risks such as insider threats. Fivecast Onyx is the perfect tool to focus on individual cases to expose unknown linkages, undeclared interests and detect a range of other concerning behaviour.
The nature and complexity of fraud means it can often be very difficult to detect – even for specialists who are trained to look for it.
Fivecast Onyx, with its ability to scan huge volumes of data from multiple sources, is a powerful tool in the fight against fraudulent activity
Fivecast Onyx can find hard to detect patterns in data and make connections that are otherwise invisible. In essence, Fivecast Onyx has the ability to find the ‘needle in the haystack’.
