Search app Enigma won TechCrunch Disrupt NY 2013, clinching a $50,000 prize, TechCrunch announced Wednesday.

The engine turns up publicly available information for search terms by drawing information from more than 100,000 sources. It’s designed to remove the research-intensive aspect of public record searches.

TechCrunch writes:

“Searching for “Google” brings up yet another extensive list of datasets to dive into, including a listing of the company’s 2012 H-1B Visa applications. After jumping into that set, you can run another search to drill down those Visa applications to view only software engineers and determine that the U.S. Department of Labor certified 471 of Google’s H-1B applications for software engineers, and that the average wage was about $122,809.” Source: TechCrunch
