Search Anonymously. Work Without Fear of Discovery.
Cyber threat analysts, red teams, and fraud investigators probe the open web seeking publicly available resources – such as company websites, public records, press releases or social media posts – that can be turned into useful intelligence to help fuel their investigations. However, the work may unintentionally reveal their presence on the internet, their geographic locations and even their identities, or worse, expose attack surfaces for hackers to exploit.
As such, investigators need to be able to conduct their searches anonymously.

Every time a user browses the internet, a digital trail is left behind as a roadmap of the investigator’s activities. Today’s sites are full of tracking links that gather information on traffic sources and how users reached the website. By clicking one of these links, investigators are leaving behind a digital clue to their location and exposing the organizations they work for.
If discovered by the target or by bad actors, ramifications can include:
- Risk of jeopardizing the investigation
- Retribution as hackers attempt to breach the organization’s network
- Misinformation to mislead the investigation in another direction
The best way to protect investigators, their online research activities, and the organization is to prevent them from being seen in the first place.
