Internet Investigation Solutions, or IIS for short, is a privately-owned company that was formed to deliver solutions, to both the public and private sectors, based around non-attributable open source browsing and evidence capture.
The founders of IIS formed and operates one of the world’s largest data protection companies. Clients included Police Forces, The CPS, Government Departments, Energy firms, Communication and pharmaceutical companies.
These relationships forged a deep understanding of the difficulties clients faced when gathering intelligence from the web to assist in defence against fraud and other criminal activities. Soon after, a product range was developed around these very specialist requirements, each focussing on providing superior solutions to a specific customer base.
Long Arm® is a core part of the IIS portfolio. Offering an end-to-end misattributable internet investigation & intelligence suite to law enforcement and related government sectors, the software itself allows for the discovery, capture and presentation of internet-based evidence, whilst maintaining legislative compliance and preserving the evidential chain.
OSAPP, the Open Source Application, is essentially a private sector version of Long Arm. The platform does have similarities to Long Arm, however, it is structurally completely separate and focusses more heavily on risk management.
Vestigo is a training and consultancy organisation built around both Long Arm and OSAPP. The training side of Vestigo offers regular courses and CPD for users of the software, whilst the Consultancy arm focusses on creating, building, growing or training internal investigative/security teams within large organisations.
