Martus is designed specifically for professionals, such as journalists and human rights activists, that work with vulnerable people, like refugees or abuse victims. Martus allows users to enter information about a person, then automatically encrypts the entered data and sends it to a network of secured servers. Martus users can then view, analyze, report, and visualize the data within the app. Data in MBA files can only be exported and imported by Martus.
