Nuix is a worldwide provider of information management technologies, including eDiscovery, electronic investigation and information governance software.


It is no longer practical for investigators to forensically analyze each data source. It is also no longer necessary. In a large majority of cases, the critical evidence is in email, documents, web history, mobile device logs or other obvious sources.

With Nuix, investigators can collect all available data in a single storage location. They can then use multiple advanced investigative techniques to understand the content and context of all available digital evidence. Nuix gives overworked investigators and cash-strapped law enforcement agencies the ability to find answers faster and make serious inroads into their backlog of cases

The next generation of Social Media Search

EchoSec is a new search engine that connects you with trillions of pictures and posts made by billions of people; which normally never make it to common search engines. EchoSec also connects you with other dynamic data like air flight and ship information.

EchoSec has created a special harvesting tool that displays dynamic and user-generated content from multiple sites like Twitter, Foursquare and Instagram (with potential to parse from 480 feeds).  This unique way of harvesting data gives EchoSec a completely unfiltered and real-time view of the world.  The results from EchoSec search engines are very interesting and unexpected, extraordinary places and people share text messages and photographs.  For example, military bases, government facilities, private facilities, disaster zones (like Tacloban in the Philippines), and even ‘impenetrable’ countries like North Korea.

Almost everyone has a mobile phone.  People take pictures of crime scenes as the event are unfolding or minutes afterwards.  Then they post to social media sites, quite often before local law enforcement knows the crime has occurred.

EchoSec’s application works within a standard web browser with a map as the primary user interface.  With EchoSec you can zoom into a location and refine your search results with date filters.   The application is currently in the Cloud but it is designed to also be hosted from an InHouse server.  Using an InHouse server allows for longer term retention of data, security of data, and the ability to add in privately held feeds such as CCTV, which would greatly increase the situational awareness.
