The Leader in Social Open Source Intelligence

We help the legal industry discover, analyze and preserve information from social media and the web.

We Provide Ethically Sourced Research

When it comes to the admissibility of online and social media evidence, the key is to ensure you are accessing and preserving the information in a permissible manner. But collecting, analyzing, and preserving online data while conforming to the rules of evidence takes time and expertise.

SMI Aware helps our clients discover, analyze, and preserve information from social media and the web. Our in-house expert Analysts use our proprietary software to identify and curate information valuable to your case while providing the benefits of independent 3rd party data collection. The SMI Aware application controls the search and collection process, so you can be assured that each report is generated to the same standard of quality.

The time to request a report is now, while the information may still be accessed online. Every hour you wait provides more time for your subject to prevent you from collecting the web and social media evidence you need to make your case.

Deep Report

In-depth Investigations that cover complex networks, social media and the deep web. The investigations are tailored to the defined search criteria provided by the client in order to find specific information.


Our Export provides defensible web and social media evidence by obtaining the source code and metadata to secure the digital chain of custody, which is far superior to a screenshot.

Research Bundle

The Research Bundle ensures you have the most relevant data and that this data is protected for use in court. It includes a Deep Report and up to three Exports to preserve key evidence.


Some projects have specific needs or a larger volume of data to review. SMI Aware offers a customized support option to meet the unique needs of your project.
