The next generation in endpoint visibility.

With a solid architecture, a library of customisable forensic artifacts and its own unique and flexible query language, Velociraptor provides the next generation in endpoint monitoring, digital forensic investigations and cyber incident response.


At the press of a (few) buttons, perform targeted collection of digital forensic evidence simultaneously across your endpoints, with speed and precision.


Continuously collect endpoint events such as event logs, file modifications and process execution. Centrally store events indefinitely for historical review and analysis.


Don't wait until an event occurs. Actively search for suspicious activities using our library of forensic artifacts, then customize to your specific threat hunting needs.


When serious events occur on an endpoint, trigger an automated response to collect evidence, silently block malicious activity or lock-down endpoints entirely.

Open source

As an open source platform, Velociraptor continues to evolve and improve through feedback and input from practitioners on the front lines of cyber security and digital forensic investigations. As your needs change, so can Velociraptor.

Deploys in minutes

Velociraptor works natively on Windows, macOS and Linux. It's distributed as a static binary with no libraries or dependencies. You can create a server within minutes and easy deploy clients using SCCM or Group Policy, even run in agentless mode.

Powered by VQL

The Velociraptor Query Language (VQL) is an expressive query language designed to adapt to your requirements easily and without needing to modify any code nor deploy additional software. VQL encapsulates digital forensic expertise into human readable files called 'artifacts' which can be shared and exchanged freely within the community.

Community backed

Velociraptor is a vibrant open source project with a large community of users and developers.

Build upon real-world experience

Velociraptor is built by digital forensic and incident response practitioners and used on real-world investigations every day. As we encounter new challenges and requirements, we develop new features and artifacts, which are contributed back into the project, for the benefit of the whole community.

Performance management

We know that performance is critical and operational impact must be minimized. Velociraptor provides real-time performance monitoring and endpoint throttling to run more intense hunts 'low and slow' thereby minimizing any operational impact.
