the Forensic Reach
Achieve unmatched accuracy and efficiency in your Cyber Threat Intelligence with our cutting-edge methods packed with the latest ML models!
Mobile devices and wearables
Computer hard drives
By employing OSINT tools, forensic analysts can greatly expand on the hardware-derived data so that it includes:
Photo, audio and video content
Social media presence
Information from 3rd party servers (sports apps, streaming services, etc.)
While some private data is still stored on-premises as ‘hard’ copies, or offline backups, the vast majority resides on the cloud. Offline data extracted from devices may only represent the tip of the iceberg.
Extracted data has to be proven reliable and comprehensible if it is to be accepted in court. Sometimes, it can be extremely difficult to present data as a coherent picture of a subject’s actions.
With masses of data stored both online and on hardware devices, analysts can no longer gather, filter, and analyze information manually.
While malicious outlets such as social media profiles can be identified, the real-world actor behind the campaigns often remains hidden in anonymity
Achieve unmatched accuracy and efficiency in your background checks with our cutting-edge methods packed with the latest AI models
Reverse search the subject’s email address, telephone number, social media profiles, subscriptions, and much more. For example, a telephone number can be extracted from a Telegram account, or an email address from a Skype account, etc. This can be essential for verifying existing data and finding new sources.
Photo and Video Metadata Extraction
Get geocodes and the time and date of media creation to establish when and where the content was created.
Automated Textual Analysis
Utilize machine-learning algorithms to categorize large quantities of text by subject matter and sentiment, and summarize textual blocks for quick content assessment. For instance, with NLP modules, blogs and social media profiles can be swiftly checked for red flags, such as aggressive language, radical views, etc.
Link Analysis and Pattern Visualization
Unearth extremely subtle links between a wide variety of data points, and view information structures globally through pattern manipulation. If numerous entities have been extracted from a source (e.g., blog posts or photos from social media), links can automatically be established between the data points.
Monitor darknet forums and breach databases, and use SLDB to uncover the actors behind anonymous profiles. Link PGP keys from darknet activities to accounts on the Surface Web such as email addresses.
Social Media Intelligence with Facial Recognition
Utilize advanced AI algorithms to conduct searches from a single image input start. Through biometrics data matching, a person of interest can be reverse searched from an image across social media and beyond.
UNLOCK THE DATA
