Human Rights Violations

Human Rights Violations

Scalio helped create Mobile Martus, a secure Android-based mobile documentation application built on Benetech's Martus technology, which allows human rights defenders, activists, journalists, and other users anywhere in the world to securely gather information about human rights violations.

The Mobile Martus application allows users to send crucial data from the field—text, photographs, audio and video—to the Martus network of secure servers. The data is automatically encrypted on the mobile phone, and when being sent to the server, so it is protected in case the phone is lost, stolen or confiscated. A user—or someone they designate—can later retrieve their data, and can search, analyze and report on the information, using the Martus desktop client software on their computer.
