Velocidex Query Language (VQL)

Velociraptor is powered by VQL and VQL is the killer feature which makes it so powerful. But what exactly is VQL? This section is a quick overview of VQL.


Introducing Velociraptor

Hunting and responding like a raptor!

At Velocidex we have been running open source endpoint monitoring tools for our clients in order to detect and respond to incidents. One of our favorite tools is GRR, developed by Google internally and then released as open source. GRR is a very powerful tool, with a polished UI and good documentation.

Unfortunately the open source version released by Google suffers from some shortcomings and so we have decided to develop a new project, built on the shoulders of giants called Velociraptor.
