Nuix Investigate: Giving Investigators Something To Talk About

by Lisa Bailey | Nuix

We’ve renamed Nuix Web Review & Analytics to underscore our commitment to providing the very best software on the market to help investigators do their work better. Introducing Nuix Investigate!

NOT JUST REVIEW OR ANALYTICS

No, we haven’t built a brand-new product. What we’ve done is taken a long, hard look at our software portfolio and formalized what we’ve long known—namely, how perfect the software we used to call Nuix Web Review & Analytics is as a tool for a variety of investigations use cases.I’m incredibly excited on behalf of the entire Nuix team to be writing this article. This is especially true because of the increased energy and attention on our law enforcement work, which we’re all so proud of because it helps make such a difference in the world.

So, what’s the big deal about a product name change, anyway? Nuix Investigate is more than just a review and analytics tool, as the previous name implied, as it allows investigations teams to quickly cull through data and work together to uncover hidden insights and relationships in connected data.

In addition, it allows:
Non-technical case investigators to collaboratively review and investigate key evidence
Forensic technicians to interrogate data across people, objects, locations, and events
Technical analysts to export, analyse, and review data to find relevant information and see links and connections within communications data.

LETTING EVERYONE WORK TOGETHER
Investigations succeed when everyone involved can work together to identify the vital facts, people, and evidence sources. Forensic technicians need effective ways to interrogate data while case investigators want eyes on evidence quickly, so they can add context and examine leads.

We often hear investigators tell us their frustrations when it comes to sharing digital data with investigating officers. Usually the digital forensic team is in a separate location to the investigations team, requiring the investigating officer to travel to view data, which is time consuming and costly. And if the data doesn’t reveal any insights, it can be a wasted journey, not the best use of an officer’s time.

Nuix Investigate gives you a collaborative environment to share, search, and analyze case data anytime, from any web browser. Our powerful visualizations show you at a glance who the key players are and what they’re up to, so you can make faster and better-informed decisions.

Nuix Investigate provides the following benefits:

See the big picture, faster. Establish a case position sooner and identify the most influential suspects with a graphical analytical interface that shows who is talking to whom, what about, and how often—across many communication channels.

Save time and increase productivity. Conduct repetitive tasks repeatedly across multiple data sets, cases, locations, or systems to build clear insights as you drill deeper into the evidence.

Collaborate and share, securely. Investigators and other stakeholders can collaborate on case data and digital evidence and protect sensitive information with role-based access to data sets and product features.

Multi-language infrastructure. We have introduced a localization framework that enables us to build Nuix Investigate in different languages. We now have German and Japanese, as well as English, for all user interfaces and system messages, and the infrastructure in place to introduce more languages in the future.

We’re excited to continue building software that investigators and law enforcement agencies can trust to do the work they need done quickly and accurately. Download the Nuix Investigate fact sheet for more information.
