Griffeye Analyze technology donated to ICMEC and Project VIC
To solidify our commitment to fighting child sexual abuse, we are proud and excited to announce that the Analyze technology will be donated to the International Centre for Missing and Exploited Children (ICMEC) and Project VIC. This will guarantee law enforcement entities working with child sexual abuse (CSA) investigations continued free usage of the technology.
“Analyze has always been free of charge for law enforcement working with CSA investigations. The impact Analyze has on increasing efficiency and facilitating victim identification work is something we are very proud of. By formalizing a donation of the technology to ICMEC and Project VIC we want to show our continuous commitment to fighting child sexual abuse,” says Johann Hofmann, Head of Griffeye.
NetClean, the former housing company of Analyze now called Griffeye Analyze, already has a close collaborative relationship with ICMEC and Project VIC and was one of the original supporters of the Project VIC initiative.
“This donation is momentous as it represents a strong partnership that combines ICMEC’s international network and expertise with Analyze’s state-of-the-art technology, which will ultimately help us make progress in the fight against sexual abuse crimes against children. Having access to the Analyze solution presents ICMEC with an extraordinary opportunity and we are very grateful for the donation, says Maura Harty, President and CEO of ICMEC.
“Through the donation, the Analyze technology is available to law enforcement across the globe fighting child sexual abuse,” says Johann Hofmann.
“We will continue to put effort and resources into the continuous improvement of the Analyze platform to make sure that it is the best digital media investigation tool on the market. This will in turn continue to benefit users working with CSA investigations.”
The donation is modelled on previous technology donations made to ICMEC, such as Microsoft Photo DNA. It ensures ICMEC and Project VIC free usage of the technology.
