How Do We Find Hacks?

Our approach to this problem is inverse to common practice, starts from the source of the problem being Villains, and constantly improves using machine learning / AI (Artificial Intelligence) to increase our identification of Victims and Villains (and all while we sleep).

Clustering

Every Villain unsuspectingly provides our algorithm with data to find similar sites (their friends).

Ranking

We prioritize behavior based upon Victim value to understand Villain intent on multiple dimensions.

Trending

Monitoring new sites hacked vs. cleaned sites gives our algorithms insights to Villains.
