Research shows that most organizations implement DIY solutions or cocktails of discrete technologies to get analysts online. Silo for Research is a cloud-delivered platform that puts your team on the web in seconds — without added infrastructure or any other upfront investments. Analysts access a virtual environment that gives them full-fidelity access to the web without the risk.
Investigating fraud and misuse of the brand puts your team in contact with toxic content and malicious actors. Because Silo for Research executes in the cloud, your environment is never exposed, and your identity is never revealed. All rendered content, all executable code, all access requests to sites and all collections are performed by Silo, with your analysts interacting only with a benign remote display.
Research platforms typically require exceptions to IT policies or live outside of IT control. Silo for Research provides a single, central point of policy enforcement and oversight. Policies are defined in an admin console, and all analyst actions are logged and encrypted via customer-managed keys. APIs allow you to extract encrypted audit logs for internal analysis or to respond to information requests.
Criminals can be skeptical about who they do business with, so investigation teams need to engage without revealing identity or intent. Silo for Research gives analysts a point-and-click managed attribution framework that can spoof platform, location and time zone as well as provide anonymous, real-time language translation and other tools in order to engage on terms that don’t tip their hand.
Silo for Research allows analysts to follow the evidence trail across the surface, deep or dark web seamlessly and without disrupting the flow of their research.
Brand fraud occurs across geographies, and criminals localize their exploits. Analysts need to investigate activity that is localized for different languages, regions, and device platforms. Silo for Research gives the analyst a wide range of platform configuration options that lets them assess fraudulent activity regardless of how the content has been formatted.
Investigations may require analysts to engage with an adversary directly. Silo for Research provides a secure, anonymous container for persona-based engagement, so analysts can safely participate in forum discussions, social media engagement or even conduct transactions without compromising their mission.
Research platforms typically live outside the reach of IT policies, which can lead to misuse or even abuse. With Silo for Research, all analyst and administrator activity is logged and encrypted with customer-managed keys. Reviews can be static and periodic, or they can be integrated with insider threat platforms via API.
