Enrich threat and security intelligence, investigate suspected phishing and inform incident response using Silo for Research

Validate, engage and enrich without risk

SOCs and incident response teams engage with all forms of toxic content and encounter bad actors every day. Whether validating potentially malicious links, investigating phishing campaigns, assessing takedowns for brand misuse or looking into signals from cybersecurity intelligence solutions, analysts expose themselves and their organizations to major risks. 

Silo for Research isolates web browsing to neutralize toxic content and provides analysts with a purpose-built solution to manage their digital fingerprint and conduct investigations efficiently.

Isolate browsing, cloak identity, improve productivity

Completely isolate from all malware

Silo for Research executes 100% of web code on a secure, remote host in the cloud, and collected assets can be stored in an encrypted off-site storage repository. No web-native data reaches the endpoint — ever — whether conducting security intelligence research on the surface, deep or dark web. 

For analysts requiring dark web research, Silo for Research: Dark Web provides point-and-click access, without the need to install and manage additional software.

Manage and anonymize digital identity

Silo for Research never reveals analysts’ identity, affiliation or intent — no matter the computer or network used. Show a local IP that never refers back to your organization and a user agent configured to fit the scenario (device type, OS, browser, etc.). Appear as an in-region visitor to prevent websites from showing different information. With Silo for Research, security intelligence analysts have the tools to spoof location, platform attributes, language and more.
