Witigo is a brand of the French company Profil Technology S.A., specialist in the security of information systems and digital content filtering.
Witigo solutions have one major objective: to protect children from access to inappropriate sites whether at home, school or wherever children can access the Internet via their mobile devices (portable PCs, tablets and smart phones). For this, they rely on the experience of a team of 20 specialists in digital content filtering: researchers, linguists, document specialists and developers, who have developed and advanced an innovative, 100% French content recognition technology, named ICE (Intelligent Content Evaluation).
Thanks to a very detailed analysis (address, keywords, links, images and semantics), ICE technology recognises the contents of a web page, even if it has just been modified by a comment or an update.
Our technology, which has been several times recognised in specialised testing, is integrated into all Witigo solutions.
Profil Technology S.A. is an independent French company specialising in the development, publishing and distribution of computer software. Founded in 1989 by engineers under the name of Editions Profil, the company has, since its creation, developed and commercialised many software families in a variety of areas ranging from office to multimedia. In 2001, the company took an important turn by signing an agreement with Bitdefender to exclusively publish their anti-virus solutions for the French territories and French-speaking countries of Europe and Africa. The Bitdefender brand quickly became the leader in France, particularly in the consumer market, thanks to the agreement signed by Editions Profil with Fnac for providing anti-virus marketed under their brand.
In 2004, Editions Profil specialised further in Internet protection by developing its own dynamic filtering technology of digital content: ICE (Intelligent Content Evaluation). Under the name of Profil Technology, the first solution for children, Parental Filter, and the first solution for companies, Profil Network Filter, were launched. In 2014, 25 years after its creation, Editions Profil S.A. became Profil Technology S.A. and released two new brands onto the market, Egedian and Witigo, to better segment the product offerings to businesses and to individuals.
During this same year 2014, the R & D department of Profil Technology innovates again in the area of content recognition by developing a scanning technology, detection, classification and filtering of images and pornographic videos, named VISIA Technology (Video , Streaming & Image Analysis). Marketed in the form of SDK , VISIA Technology provides the ability to integrate with future products Witigo parental control and / or integrate its detection capabilities to third party products.
