DataExpert History - DataExpert EN

Apr 4, 2023

Vidocq DataExpert was founded in 1990 as a spin-off of Kender Thijssen and Q-RAY Agrimatica. Vidocq, the investigator information system for the Criminal Intelligence Service, was built up with a team of specialists. Within a few years, dozens of customers in the Netherlands and Belgium were making use of this system. Distribution and training Besides software development, DataExpert also took care of the marketing, sale, installation, support and training. It was a logical step to also start doing this with interesting products from other companies. That is why in 1992, DataExpert also became a distributor for i2 (now  IBM ) for the software package   Analyst’s Notebook . This product is now a global phenomenon with all investigative organisations. Two other i2 products, such as  iBase , were added in the years after that. Detection and analysis DataExpert was developing more and more from a developer into a value added reseller. New digital forensic detection and analytics products were added to the portfolio and the number of partners grew quickly. Guidance Software now OpenText  ( EnCase ) and  AccessData now Exterro ( Forensic Toolkit ) are examples of that. The services have also been expanded with a  training  range and a  consultancy  range regarding the use and usability of the software. Security Solutions In addition to the analytics and forensic solutions, DataExpert now also focuses on  security solutions. This activity focuses on cyber security, securing the critical infrastructures, data security (including cloud security) and risk & compliance (e-discovery). Training practice DiEx DataExpert wants to increase its customers’ knowledge of conducting investigations and the necessary software. As a result of this ambition, DataExpert has set up a training department. In order to provide training in the field of cyber crime, Internet investigations and safety analyses, DataExpert acquired the training organisation DiEx in 2017. Expansion of the market area Where DataExpert has been active in the Netherlands, Belgium and the Caribbean since 1990, DataExpert decided also to serve the Scandinavian market in 2018. The first step was taken by the collaboration with the Swedish Forensic Experts Scandinavia AB (now called DataExpert Nordic AB). This collaboration was so positive that DataExpert decided to take over Forensic Experts Scandinavia in 2019. September 1, 2021, DataExpert took the next step with the acquisition of the forensic business of Hammerich Media & IT supplies in Denmark. Together with our Swedish and Danish colleagues we now assist investigative authorities and companies in Sweden, Denmark, Iceland, Finland and Norway in the fight against (cyber) crime and fraud. Interstellar In order to serve our customers customers in the best possible way, DataExpert became part of Interstellar since February 2021. Interstellar consists of a collection of IT service providers Solimas, Exite ICT, DataByte, CSN Group, Ask Roger! and Q Conferencing and IT specialists in the field of cloud and security Fundaments, Pinewood, SCCT and DataExpert. The ten companies will remain autonomous with their own quality, specialization and identity, but will make use of each other's expertise. Independent solutions In 30 years, DataExpert has grown to become the independent knowledge and technology partner for all investigative and security services and commercial parties. We translate needs in the field of data security and forensic research into appropriate solutions. Our years of experience and expertise in the Public Order and Safety market help us with that.
