Every day we detect sensitive data circulating via the Internet without any protection such as passwords, credit cards, confidential documents, etc.


We have automated the entire information search process. This allows us to monitor a large number of sources at a high frequency. When a risk is identified, we perform a detailed human analysis to supplement the detected information. Having eliminated false positives, we then alert the companies, providing them with a precise analysis of the existing risk so they can take appropriate remedial steps.


We offer a service that can be easily integrated into existing security solutions. This service is non-intrusive, does not need to be installed on our customers' IT infrastructure and is based on a list of keywords that includes in particular domain names, IP addresses as well as subsidiary, brand and product names.


When a risk is detected, we alert our customers via a secure interface. This interface makes it possible to manage threats effectively. A control panel facilitates the monitoring of alerts over time, from the detection to the resolution of threats.
