ChapsVision acquires Owlint, the OSINT specialist for collecting and processing digital footprints on the Web
ChapsVision, a specialist in the sovereign processing of massive and heterogeneous data, announces the acquisition of Owlint, an innovative start-up specializing in Open-Source Intelligence (OSINT). Owlint collects and analyzes data from the Web, assesses a person’s digital footprint and identifies cyber risks with remarkable precision.
Suresnes, October 5, 2023
Open-source intelligence (ROSO / OSINT) is an investigative practice increasingly used to map a digital environment and anticipate the threats to which it is exposed.
The acquisition of Owlint is an important milestone in ChapsVision’s drive to consolidate this market, in order to create a credible, international player capable of reassuring its customers and becoming their valued partner in the use of these sensitive technologies. Over the past two years, the group has gradually enhanced its portfolio of solutions with economic and strategic intelligence solutions such as AMI EI, Qwam and Geotrend. Owlint, with its expertise in targeted OSINT, will complement these capabilities and integrate naturally with ChapsVision’s Argonos platform for processing massive, heterogeneous data, to serve use cases for both companies (B2B / Business to Business) and government services (B2G / Business to Government).
Olivier Dellenbach, CEO & Founder of ChapsVision, was immediately attracted by Owlint’s innovative capabilities: “From our first collaboration on projects for the banking and insurance sector, our technological synergies were obvious. I quickly invited them to join us, to help create a European leader in this field.”
“Olivier’s vision and determination to make it a reality motivated us to join this major project, which shares our deep commitment to preserving European data sovereignty,” adds Marc Rénier, Co-founder and COO of Owlint.
As a specialist in sovereign data processing, ChapsVision enables companies and public authorities to succeed in their digital transformation and create value, thanks to a software suite built around its system for exploiting massive, heterogeneous data.
Through major R&D investments in massive data processing, complemented by a sustained strategy of acquisitions and international expansion, ChapsVision has rapidly built up a coherent group comprising two branches addressing sectors with a high data footprint: one dedicated to customer engagement with enterprises, and the other offering sovereign solutions dedicated to cyber intelligence and cybersecurity for the defense, intelligence and security markets.
Founded in 2019, ChapsVision has nearly 600 employees, 600 key account customers, and is targeting sales of €180m in 2023.
Born in 2018, Owlint launched with a bold vision to make the Internet safer. At the heart of the constantly evolving technological ecosystem, Owlint has developed expertise in the field of Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) and has emerged as a promising player, symbolizing the freshness of innovation.
A multiple award-winner with a strong presence in the Open Source and Research community, Owlint has been recognized as a “Young Innovative Company” since 2021.
