Safe and anonymous access to all areas of the web

Silo for Research is purpose-built solution for conducting online research without exposing analysts’ digital fingerprint. Safely pursue investigations across the surface, deep or dark web from a cloud-based browsing interface while controlling how you appear online.

Protect your identity and your investigation

Adversaries exploit tracking mechanisms in traditional browsers to uncover analysts’ identity and intent — and spoil the investigation. Silo for Research manages the details they see, so analysts don’t arouse suspicion.

Preserve data in the cloud

Investigators may be required to capture and collect content as part of their process. And to maintain efficacy of potential evidence, a proper chain of control and evidentiary requirements must be met. Silo for Research integrates with Authentic8 Secure Storage, an encrypted, audited cloud-based storage repository for users and groups.
