Vistalworks solution to detect unsafe products on the web

Vistalworks is a Scotland-based startup which helps consumers actively avoid buying fake, illicit and dangerous goods online. They have developed technology that greatly reduces the risk that shoppers will become a victim of fraud and illicit trade, with software that warns online shoppers of potential high-risk purchases before they buy.


Vistalworks protects citizens and businesses from harmful online products and sellers, using targeted intelligence software that helps enforcement agencies focus their efforts and web tools that support consumer protection. The solution they have developed in response to the challenge set by VVTAT will help them and consumer protection agencies across the EU increase their impact in protecting citizens from dangerous products on sale online by automatically finding products that have been alerted as high risk that are on sale by web-sellers in their jurisdiction. This will save time, resources and effort, and let them deliver on their primary mission more effectively.
