What does The OSINT GROUP do?

The OSINT GROUP can aggregate unlimited information sources, harvesting information from across 126 countries in 25 languages.

Our research software tools use an advanced content tagging system with more than 30 metadata tags and 380 categories to deliver hundreds of thousands of unduplicated real-time content items every day.

What does The OSINT GROUP do?Unique “Deep Web” Mining

The Deep Web is massive --

approximately 500 times greaterthan

that visible to conventional

search engines -- with much higher

quality throughout.

The simplest way to describe our technology is a

"directed-query engine."

It has other powerful features in results

qualification and classification, but it is this

ability to query multiple search sites directly

and simultaneously that allows Deep Web

content to be retrieved.
