Adverse Media

We use curated sources to ensure only reliable media informs this identification of adverse entities.

Using machine-learning-based technology enables a correct differentiation between the risk and the online noise.

We are able to identify every name in every article, every person and every organization. Identify crimes and categorize them by type, adding contextual information such as abbreviations or nicknames, dates of birth, age, locations, and associated entities. And run a full analysis of media context related to each name throughout these articles.
