NSO Group is a top global technology company that develops unique, cutting edge intelligence solutions for governmental clients.
For over a decade, we have been assisting selected intelligence and law enforcement agencies in detecting, investigating and preventing crime and terrorism.
We all benefit from technologies and applications that allow us to easily communicate with a click of a button. Cellphone voice calls, text messaging, emails and other means of instant remote communications have become a standard in our lives.
But with convenience comes a price, as there are those who use these technologies for malicious purposes. Their actions are often enabled by off-the-shelf encryption technologies, allowing terrorists, drug-traffickers, sexual predators and other criminals to expand their lethal reach while avoiding detection.
This new reality creates complex challenges that authorities struggle to overcome.
When this happens – when the bad guys “go dark” – the whole world gets darker.
NSO Group provides intelligence and law enforcement agencies the capability to push back against this growing darkness, seeing clearly what is otherwise invisible.
Developed by elite technology experts, our portfolio provides a wide spectrum of responses to the threats and plays a critical role in protecting the right for life, security and personal safety. Our clients are solely vetted governments entities – the agencies lawfully entrusted with public safety.
Thanks to NSO Group, intelligence and law enforcement agencies worldwide are rapidly closing the gap between them and the terrorists and criminals they track, by legally bypassing commercial encryption to intercept threats in real time.
Our products have saved tens of thousands of lives and spared countless others from suffering. They have also proven valuable in locating missing persons and expediting search-and-rescue missions.
NSO Group offers much-needed, lawful and proportionate solutions, and serves as the only "target-centric" solution.
