Intelligence that makes the difference.

Online intelligence has become crucial for making the right decisions.
We support law enforcement agencies and other information-driven organisations with our forensic web intelligence technology, expertise and unique datasets to deliver intelligence that is both targeted and actionable.

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.

Interested in our Darknet data but looking for an on-premises solution?
 Together with our partners we have designed a blazingly fast turn-key DarkCloud Box. Web-IQ takes care of the data collection and analysis, but the data is then stored on the box and your queries stay within the walls of your organisation.

SafeCity package

Safe City intelligence

Do you know what is happening online in your city? Who is undermining the safety and economic stability of your citizens?
We are helping cities and municipalities to get a grip on the online landscape by providing data and expertise.

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.
