About Us

Designed for people like you.

From our experience of working with both law enforcement and multinational businesses, we realized that online investigations are slow, unstructured, labor intensive and in many cases lack the formalities and checks to hold up in court. And as entrepreneurs, techies and developers, we couldn’t help ourselves – problems are there to be solved. We asked ourselves: “How hard can it be?” And, as simple as that Paliscope was born.

Based in Sweden, we have been building technology solutions to help discover, investigate and solve online crime since 2003. Today our peer companies NetClean and Griffeye are at the top of the class in their respective fields, and used in 130 countries across the world.

We are Paliscope

Our team is made up by the brightest and most dedicated people. Committed to creating the best software for our users.

Why Paliscope?
What is a Paliscope, anyway?

A story of how an unwanted change at the last minute can turn out just right.

We realize we will get asked about the name Paliscope. So here it is: No reason. No connection. Just Paliscope.

When we first started looking at names for our new tech company we wanted to use our Swedish origins, and after rejecting oodles of names came up with the Swedish word for “The Lighthouse”: “Fyren”. We liked both the word and the association to a searchlight, but changed the “f” to “ph” to give it a more international touch.

All looked clear to move ahead with the name, and as the process moved forward we created the graphic profile with logo and colors. That’s when we got the notification from our patent firm, about a problem in the US. PhyreEngine – a free game engine from Sony used in more than 200 game titles. Too similar. Start over.

However, we now really liked the design concept that we had. We wanted to keep it. That meant we needed a new name that had to start with a “P”. We ended up with Paliscope. We just like it. No reason. No connection. Just Paliscope.
