Investigations increase risk

For any web user, malware is just a click away. But investigators relying on the web for data sources are at an increased risks. Digital clues to who they are and their line of work — law enforcement, trust and safety, cybersecurity intelligence — are leaked by browsers to the sites they visit, which could make them or their organization a target.

Authentic8’s solution for online investigations changes the game. It eliminates the cyber risks of engaging with websites, forums and marketplaces. And it empowers investigators to manage and protect their identity and intent, while providing them with purpose-built collection and analysis tools.
